This class was fun, engaging, and delicious. Plus, it offered an opportunity to learn something new! Really, though, both the cheeses and chocolates were OUT OF THIS WORLD. Thank you for a wonderful time --- highly recommend this class to anyone who likes cheese or chocolate (or, in my case, both)!

Teacher's response

Hi Aliess,
We're so glad you had a wonderful time during our class! We're grateful to hear that you found both the cheeses and chocolates to be out of this world. It was our pleasure to provide you with a wonderful experience.

For our holiday team event, we had Milene guide us through some chocolate and cheese parings. Not only was it delicious, it was a ton of fun to hear her expertise and just enjoy time together as a team. Milene was great and 'read the audience' well jumping into our fun whole-heartedly! What was promised as 45 minutes ended up as 70 minutes because we were all enjoying ourselves so much! Highly recommended!

Teacher's response

Hi Michael,

This was a wonderful experience. Milene was very personable and did a great job of explaining the intricacies of cheese and chocolate making/pairing to an audience with very mixed experiences. Plus, everything was delicious!

We host an annual, virtual, foodie event over the holidays for my team that is spread all over the country. We have done wine tasting, cheese tasting, pairings and other stuff. This truffle, cheese and chocolate tasting was amazing. I was skeptical because it sounded so different. I am glad I chose this class It overdelivered with creativity, taste and quality. I have recommended this to many friends and colleagues. It was the most unique and coolest culinary experience we have had in a while. Milene was a great host and a wonderful person. She engaged with everyone on the call and kept everyone involved. Outstanding

Teacher's response

Daniel Dec 2023

This virtual chocolate and cheese tasting was incredible! I had never experienced the two items paired before. Individually, all of the cheese and chocolates were delicious. When combined, the flavors elevated to a fantastic level. Our teacher, Milene, was amazing. She is extremely knowledgeable and did a fantastic job guiding us through the tasting. She imparted a lot of knowledge and fostered a fun and convivial environment. I highly recommend this class!

Fun to taste chocolate and learn about how it's made. Would like more pictures or a slideshow of the chocolate and the ingredients that go into it.

Teacher's response

Thank you, Brenna, for your wonderful review! We are thrilled to hear you had a fun time. We can add images in addition to the videos shared.

Alex Gamble Jun 2023

What a great class! Not only is Milene super amazing, she's extremely knowledgeable about the chocolate (because she is the innovator!) and how it pairs perfectly with each cheese as well as helping to drive the conversations among the crowd. The chocolate was some of the best chocolate I've ever had in my life - the truffles were mind blowing! Loved this class and my team was a huge fan. Thanks Milene! (My team is also totally going to look for these chocolates in stores/on the website after this as well!)

Teacher's response

Hi Alex,
Thank you so much! We are so glad you and your team enjoyed the experience and the chocolates, and we hope to see you again.

Our team had a wonderful time of connection that was expertly crafted and facilitated by Milene. Throughout the entire process from coordination to execution Milene was responsive and engaging and helped to make our team event a success. She was informative and spent time giving the history of the food we tried. It was like she was a part of the team! I would highly recommend her

Teacher's response

Hi Cindy,
We appreciate your review, and are glad you enjoyed the experience! It brings us joy to know that our coordination and execution met your expectations.

Megan Mar 2023

What an amazing event for our team! Everything arrived on time and the pairings that were selected were so different and unique and absolutely delicious. Multiple people commented that they weren't sure about the chocolate (not chocolate people) but said how surprised they were by how much they enjoyed it. People were also very surprised by how great chocolate and cheese went together and would have never tried them together without the class. Finally, everyone commented on how educational and fun the class was and what a great job Milene did hosting the tasting in a virtual environment! THANK YOU!

Teacher's response

Hi Megan,
We're grateful that everyone found the class educational and fun. It's always a pleasure to surprise people with new flavor combinations, and we're glad to hear that even the non-chocolate lovers were pleasantly surprised. Thank you for the review!

Milene was so warm and wonderful. Her flexibilty was awesome and she read the room really well. The chocolates were delicious. It was a fantastic opportunity for my team to relax in the midst of a busy and focused offsite. I feel it was an excellent value for the money. The feedback from my exec team was super positive, would 100000% book again. The team learned about how to make chocolate and Milene was so great at answering all of their detailed questions!

Teacher's response

Hi Ellen,
We're glad that you and your team found the chocolates delicious and that it provided a much-needed opportunity to relax amidst a busy offsite! It's always good to have a relaxing break from work every now and then. We look forward to seeing you again!
