Live entertainment commences from midday into the evening on the Town Square stage, take a seat at one of our many eateries to enjoy the action over lunch or dinner.
Fantastic class - we had a tasting of a generous ten samples of chocolate, big enough to allow us to go back and compare. The table was prettily decorated, and fizzy water to cleanse the palate was a great addition. This particular class was held out the front of the shop - a nice space, maybe a bit hard to hear.
This was a wonderful introduction to the subtle distinctions in quality dark chocolate, from someone who clearly knows her stuff. My only criticism would be the seating outside which contributed to background noise - if it had been inside the store, it would be 5 stars without doubt - and to be honest, that is a very minor quibble. I would certainly do the tasting again, and recommend both the quality of the Sisko products and the friendliness of the staff as well, from both this visit and many previous.
We thoroughly enjoyed our class. Christina was very informative & my husband found he actually did like dark chocolate - it just depends in which one it is.
