Santa Monica Chocolate Society Presents

the Dairy-Free/Milk-Alternative Night!

Join us for a Santa Monica Chocolate Society for an evening of vegan and milk-alternative chocolates.

The evening will feature Pump Street’s delicious oat milk bar and other surprising innovators.

 

Class price includes your chocolate tasting kit. Pick up for your tasting kit will be available starting April 9th at

The Gourmandise School Shop on the 1st floor of Santa Monica Place.  Also, shipping is available for $15.

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

KNIFE SHARPENING DAY
 

Every Thursday is Knife Sharpening Day at The Gourmandise School.  It's so important to keep your knives sharp!  Keeping your knives sharp makes a huge difference in your prep process.  It also is a good way to prevent accidental cuts.  To really know how to handle and care for your knives, sign up for our Knife Skills Technique Class. 

You can drop off your knives by 5pm Wednesdays, and pick them up anytime after 2pm Thursdays

Drop off and pick up at our retail shop on the first floor!

See the Knife Sharpening Page for Prices

Or for any questions, gives us a call at the front desk or email receptionist@thegourmandiseschool.com
