We’ve been offering chocolate classes on and off now for the last year. It recently came to my attention that the Universidad San Francisco de Quito, one of the more well-recognized universities here and home to many students of Quito’s wealthy and elite, is now offering chocolate classes. They are four hours long, and demonstration only. They enroll a maximum of up to 35 students at $90 per person. No materials are provided, nor do you go home with chocolates.

Our classes are $30 per person, and include both lecture and hands-on practice making truffles. You get to take home what you make, and this usually amounts to no less than a half pound of chocolate per person. So if you’re interested, choose which class you prefer and think is the better deal, and we’ll be happy to accommodate you whatever your choice may be. We’ll be starting up again sometime in October.
