You'll want to have a copy of our book Raising the Bar - The Future of Fine Chocolate before starting the course. You don't have to start reading the book before you begin the course. We take you chapter by chapter as you go through the curriculum.
Why do you ask us to read the book as we start the course?
We want to give you the best educational experience we can. In order to do that we want everyone who participates to be starting from the same basic knowledge about the future of chocolate.
The book is available on Amazon in both print and eBook form. eBook versions are also available at: iTunes, Nook Books, Kobo, and Copia.
You'll want to set aside a budget for chocolate bars for your tasting Assignments. To get an idea of the cost of fine chocolate bars in general go to Chocosphere.com.
You'll need from 3 - 4 different chocolates for each Assignment and there are three chocolate tasting assignments in the course. Once you register for the course, you'll be given the supply list.
Why can't Ecole Chocolat supply the chocolate for the tasting exercises?
Since our students come from all over the world, there's no way economically to provide you with chocolate as part of your registration. We encourage you to shop for the best chocolate you can find in your region. We give you suggestions and global resources for buying chocolate bars online.
