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.
