I booked the workshop as a gift for my 12 year old and her friends, they really enjoyed the class. The teacher provided clear instructions to follow, apparently working with chocolate is pretty simple!

I’d have to agree the room might be a tight squeeze but you can overlook all that because Gabi and Pearly are just so gracious and generous apart from being very knowledgeable on the topic. Super fun time and so so much chocolate to take home.

Firstly, I have to preface this by saying that Colleen was a wonderful teacher who genuinely put so much thought and care into the class. She was extremely approachable and made the class very fun! However, my issue is with the pricing of the class itself - we had to work in groups to create the desserts because there was not enough equipment - this is not what was expected if I am paying $150 per person! If I am tempering chocolate, I should be able to do it individually and not have to share. Since it is a cooking lesson, I would have expected a kitchen, not a small room with one small microwave and barely any proper utensils. The desserts were good, but the class is not worth $150.

Reply from this teacher:


Thank you for your feedback Prakriti and sorry to hear about your experience. However, we would like to clarify the price you paid is for a group workshop and not a private session, hence tools and equipment are shared. Since it is a workshop for self development; we have deigned the module bearing in mind to simplify the art of chocolate making in order for our students to be able to replicate it for personal use without having to purchase a whole lot of equipment. Having said that, we have had ample enterprising minds who have progressed through their journey of being pastry chefs, cafe owners introducing a chocolate range etc post the workshop. Technically, we do not classify this particular workshop as a ‘cooking’ class and falls under our creative section so does not require a kitchen. We do strive for excellence and focus on quality and hence keep the number of participants to 8 during this workshop so everyone gets equal individual attention. Our sincere apologies we are unable to alter your personal experience but If you any questions or concerns in regards to the content please feel free to write to us and we will be more than happy to assist you. Thank you once again for your feedback

The teacher was good but for the money spent I didn’t think it was worth it . The people who were at the class were lovely. But we had to share the moulds and had to wait one person at a time which made the workshop too long and you had to rush. And just microwaving the chocolate didn’t make it worth it because I could have done this at home by watching YouTube . So it didn’t match up to the cost for me . I was expecting to be at a cooking school . But for someone who doesn’t know at all about making chocolate , this course was informative .

Hello May! Thank you for reviewing us. We’re sorry to hear you did not have the best of experience on the day. If you would like a repeat of the session please contact me!

In regards to being a cooking school, we’re definitely not one and are a finishing school where we hold Etiquette, Beauty, Styling and Creative workshops.
