This class also includes an extensive tasting of the chocolate we make here at Raaka.

"This chocolate class provided by experts in the chocolate business was excellent. To begin with, from having a great knowledgeable chef to learning about making chocolate to actually making your own chocolate was fantastic!! The best part with the knowledge acquired you will feel confident to make chocolate at home and impress your friends and family!!"
