Inspired by the Dallas Chocolate Festival? Looking to take your love of chocolate to the next level? Join us for a quartet of hands-on chocolate workshops and have fun learning with professional instruction. All workshops take place at a spacious commissary kitchen in the Design District of Dallas. These are serious classes in a serious kitchen, taught by working chefs, but will be fun and suitable for all skill levels.

The Bean-to-Bar Chocolate Making Workshop from 9:30 am until 11:30 am will be taught by an amazing group of American chocolate makers: Ben Rasmussen of Potomac Chocolate, Bob Williamson of Austin's SRSLY Chocolate, and Rob Anderson of Washington's Fresco Chocolate. And who knows who else will stop by...

The Baking with Fine Chocolate Workshop from noon until 2:00 pm will be a hands-on class that will teach you how to make great chocolate creations at home. It's taught by pastry chef extraordinaire Zach Townsend of Dallas Chocolate Classes. You will take home what you prepare.

Tasting Chocolate Through History from 2:30 pm until 4:15 pm will be led by Carla D. Martin, PhD. Carla is the Founder and Executive Director of the Fine Cacao and Chocolate Institute and a Lecturer in the Department of African and African American Studies at Harvard University. She will present a talk about and tasting of chocolate as it has evolved through history from fruit to meso-american drink to artisinal craft chocolate.

Learn to taste and appreciate chocolate like a pro at Tasting Chocolate Like a Judge: the Best of the Best from 4:30 pm until 6:15 pm. Expert chocolate taster Madame Cocoa (Adrienne Newman) will use her experience judging prestigious chocolate competitions to guide you through tastings of some of the finest chocolate on earth.
