I have attended several courses by Anne Boulley, of Artisanne Chocolatier, and even hired her to come to my kitchen for one on one classes. While her group classes provide a fun atmosphere, and hands on experience, I enjoyed the one on one, small group feel, for the undivided attention of mastering the tempering process, and art form.
Anne is extremely knowledgeable in all things chocolate, but also pastry, breads, and cooking methods. Anne gave me the confidence and knowledge to open our own Chocolate Candy Store and has helped us become very successful! She is readily available for questions, problem solving, and new techniques. She has always exceeded my expectations.
Her teaching methods are thorough, helping you achieve your goals, whether that be artisan chocolates, tempering methods, French Macarons, or wherever your craft may take you. With her hands on approach to teaching, you will be sure to have a fun, successful experience with Anne. I can warmly recommend Anne as a Chocolatier teacher, and friend to support your endeavor.
