Learned all about cocoa from around the world, how white, milk and dark chocolate are constructed and sampled some gorgeous chocolate of different cocoa strengths from a number of countries during a very informative and well pitched...

Had a really fabulous time today with my bestie, daughter and her bestie making chocolates. Lovely staff. Very chilled but real chocolate experts. Loads of chocolate to eat from around the world. Never knew it could taste so different from one place to the next and learned loads. Made truffles. Had the best fun. Would highly recommend. Will definitely go... More

Hi Sharon, I'm really sorry that you felt the whole experience was only worth an average star rating. I've worked really hard to maintain my businesses high standards and it looks like this time I've fallen short and I'm not comfortable with you paying full price for this. Please contact me on peter@cocoa-amore.co.uk and I will refund the entire workshop... More

The staff in the shop were really lovely - I visited recently for a hot chocolate (it came with my favourite chocolate from the counter too, a passionfruit dome!!) The best i've had for a very long time. Will be looking to book in for a chocolate workshop soon.

I had a fantastic morning here at the weekend, making/tasting chocolate! I would highly recommend booking a workshop. Great insight on the history and great fun making and tasting the chocolate. Will most definitely be booking the advanced workshop. Was also the best hot chocolate I have tasted and the staff were lovely...win win!

The knowledge of the whole team at Cocoa Amore is vast and the workshop was a brilliant mix of information, tuition and light hearted fun. At 34 weeks pregnant it has been a perfect... More

The chocolate workshops are held upstairs in the shop. All the staff are very friendly and knowledgeable. Peter who owns the shop and started the business takes the classes. He started off telling us about where chocolate comes from and how it is made. We tasted samples of chocolate from different countries. We then made truffles. After that we made... More

My sister brought me the £45 workshop day experience for Christmas. I think the experience was well worth the money! Peter was really knowledgeable; it was great to learn from someone whom was clearly so passionate about his career. I thought he was a real inspiration. I think the whole experience took about three hours but the time went so... More

Have visited a few times, all the vegan chocolates are clearly labelled with a green vegan sticker. My last visit was a few days ago and they had a stand with all the vegan options which made it easy to see the options available. My personal favourite chocolates are the hazelnut pralines which are absolutely yummy. They also do a... More
