Hi CL community!

Many of you have expressed interest in ongoing education through courses such as Ecole Chocolat, which is an amazing resource for those looking to grow their expertise in hands-on chocolate making. For entrepreneurs who are seeking to build necessary skills to run their own small food business, the Food Craft Institute offers business courses taught by food craft business owners and makers.

Topics include everything from sourcing ingredients to finance and marketing skills and are taught by leading confectioners and the Bay Area's top artisan chocolate makers, such as TCHO Chocolates, Poco Dolce, Dandelion Chocolates, Barlovento, and Guittard. The five week course is a great way to get an in-depth view of the industry. 

For more information, please visit the FCI website or feel free to ask any questions in the forum!http://www.foodcraftinstitute.org/courses/chocolate-craft-confectionery

We wish! At the moment, all FCI courses are only offered in person since a large amount of the education is in visiting the practitioner facilities of established companies. Each weekend is like a mini case study of how one entrepreneur was able to successfully start and scale their company.

that class is exactly what I'm looking for but I'm in New England. :) And, it's my busy season for main job, so 5 weeks is out of the realm of possibility for now. Hope it goes well!
