Tarte choco2What?

The menu is discussed before the class. If you have a specific wish, let the Chef know; she will try her best to make it happen, unless timing/equipment is an issue.

Classes are very hands-on. Chef Guillemette will make sure you feel confident to reproduce the recipes when you are on your own.
