A few of my friends from work and I booked this chocolate making session as we wanted to try something new other than the standard drinks after work. The shop is absolutely beautiful and the hot chocolate on arrival was delicious! Sarah was lovely, made us feel extremely welcome. We had such a laugh while we made the truffles. Despite Sarah being an expert and really knowledgeable she was still laid back and fun. We've had such great time, we all want to do it again.

Surprised my other half with this experience, even though we were the only 2 people there on the day, Sarah made it a very pleasurable day for us both, we were able to take our time and enjoy the experience together. Well worth doing.

I got this as a birthday gift for my wife. The shop itself is lovely with a good variety of drinks, chocolates and cakes to choose from. We were greeted by Sarah however she didn't conduct the workshop herself. Her employee, who's name we unfortunately can't remember (we should have written it down before we left!) but his knowledge and passion for making chocolate was amazing. He has a real eye for detail and was patient but thorough when teaching us the basics. We left with our own tasty creations which just about made it back home! We had a fantastic time, thank you

Great class! The class started with an insight into chocolate making from cocoa beans to chocolate, followed by learning how to taste chocolate and trying different flavours. We then made ganache, flavoured it and filled the chocolate shells, sealed and rolled them into chocolate truffles. We thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone who loves chocolate!

Really interesting experience, highly informative tutorial in chocolate ingredient sources, techniques etc etc, and a complete hands-on guided lesson in which I chose flavours/spices and made a bag of my own very posh chocolates. From start to finish. Preceded by lounging on a sofa in their salon, drinking a seriously nice espresso. Surrounded by dozens of chocs, cake, pastries... And at least a dozen different hot chocolate possibilities. Sybaritic...
