2- Hour Chocolate Workshop in Concord!

*******The September  14, 2 PM Chocolate Workshop slot is now sold out!!!! If you have not bought the Groupon tickets yet, please do not purchase them today unless you want to do the workshop ON your own on a different date*******

We did a factory tour a few months ago @ Rachel Dunn's and we thoroughly enjoyed it! Lots of samples! Yum. Rachel Dunn is best known for her Unbelievable Apple, Giant Caramel Apple.

This time, we would like to try to make chocolate with Rachel herself and we get to keep what we make! Please visit ZOZI or GROUPON so you can get the discounted price for the two hour chocolate making class, $25.

After purchasing the voucher online with ZOZI or Groupon, please contact Rachel Dunn's store to schedule it with the other group members.

Come join us inside our chocolate factory to experience a hands-on chocolate workshop where you’ll make your very own delicious American and French chocolates with acclaimed Chocolatier Rachel Dunn.

Our chocolate workshops are an experience beyond taste, where discipline meets creativity, and challenge meets delight! Using noble fresh ingredients and premium chocolate couveratures, you’ll create much-loved American classics and traditional European confections as Rachel guides you through each step with her decades of experience and passion for the art of chocolate. Your eyes, hands, sense of smell and taste will be fully engaged while you make and decorate a generous and delicious assortment of confections to take home.

Chocolate selections for each workshop are planned according to the participant’s age group, weather and current in-season ingredients.

Rachel Dunn is a renowned Chocolatier heralded by great food authorities such as Williams-Sonoma and The Food Network. In her 30 year career, Rachel’s confections have been praised in numerous publications, from the San Francisco Chronicle and Diablo Magazine to the Philadelphia Inquirer and Fancy Food Magazine, and on numerous television shows from Oprah, QVC and The Rosie O’Donnell Show(s) to the iconic Central Perk set of ‘Friends’.

Our chocolate making workshops last 1 ½ - 2 hours, and are conducted inside the chocolate factory at 1021 Detroit Avenue in Concord, California (1/2 mile down Detroit Avenue from Monument Blvd., just past Costco.).

Reservations are required; subject to availability. Workshop tuition is per-person

Call ahead to reserve your spot in one of our calendared workshops. Call our Workshop Coordinator at (925) 798-4321.

Because we plan for and prepare individual ingredients for each participant in our workshops, each space is carefully accounted for. If you cannot participate in the class you registered for, please advise us within 14 days of the class to receive a full credit towards a future class.

Please come on time. Please indicate on the comments below once you have purchased the ticket. Deadline: September 1, 2013

    Registered, paid and confirmed! I noticed the Groupon expired September 11th, but Naomi said that was no problem and they would honor them on the 14th. Naomi remembered Kitty and can't wait to have her back.
