I have a love and hate relationship with all group deal website. I mean I do love all the good deal that allow me to try different things I wouldn't normally do (such as bungee jumping), but at the same time I am spending way more money than I care to admit. ;P
We then proceeded to the kitchen for some sampling of chocolates made with beans from only one region: Dominican Republic, Mexico, Cuba, and Tanzania.
I think tasting chocolate and detecting the different flavours is highly subjective. It all depends on your taste bud and what you had for lunch that day. I thought the chocolate form Cuba was on the sweeter side, and the Mexican chocolate had a earthy tone to it.
After an hour of hard work, this is what I am ended up with: a nice box of chocolate dipped ganache with different type of toppings. I know they are not the prettiest, but I can proudly say it's hand made by moi :).
I paid $69 for 2 people on this class which was still a little more pricey that I would have liked. Regular price is $70/person. Although I did enjoy it all, and actually learned a lot of facts from it, I would have preferred a more hands on experience. As I mentioned, they are a cafe, so they do offer some very interesting combinations of drinking chocolate. If only R and I didn't have AYCE dinner plans, we definitely would have bought a couple to try.
