SANTA MONICA CHOCOLATE SOCIETY: An Evening with Raphio Chocolate
 

Santa Monica Chocolate Society Presents:

An Evening with Raphio Chocolate with Founder Elisia Otavi

 

Join us for a night of “tasting and talking” with Raphio Chocolate founder Elisia Otavi.  Elisia has been making delicious craft chocolate in Fresno, California for 7 years. Inspired by her sons, Raphael and Rio, Raphio Chocolate was born from a desire to promote healthy real chocolates to other parents or anyone, for that matter, so their children or loved ones can also enjoy pure dark chocolate. Her mission is to make the chocolate that she prefer to feed to her own children. All that being said, her chocolate appeals to adults and the child in all of us!
We will meet with Elisia on Zoom and she will discuss with us what it takes to open a successful chocolate factory and what it means to be women-owned business. She will then lead us on a tasting of 6 of her amazing bars!

 

Class price includes your chocolate tasting kit.

Your tasting kit is available at The Gourmandise School for pick up on April 12th.

 

Shipping is also available for $15.

Please call (310) 656-8800 or email receptionist@thegourmandiseschool.com

for shipping inquiries.  

This is an online class.  Class Time: 6pm - 7:30pm PST

CLASSES ARE FOR AGES 16+ UNLESS OTHERWISE SPECIFIED.
