TESTIMONIALS

I had a tremendous time, the children loved it too. They were so engaged and excited. It was really lovely seeing them enjoying themselves. It was nice that the workshop was really informative, I learnt a few things about chocolate myself.

Year 3 teacher, South Grove Primary School

The children loved it. They were very proud of the chocolates that they took home. Lots of work has been done since our return to school. Isabelle and Alessandra were great with the children. Great hands on experience.
