Chicago Chocolate Academy Center

Welcome to the Chicago CHOCOLATE ACADEMY center!

Since we opened our doors in 2008, we have empowered chocolate artisans, pastry chefs, confectioners, and bakers with solutions to improve their skills in chocolate and master new techniques and trends.

Our expert chefs provide technical support and deliver inspirational recipes, digital resources, engaging demonstrations, and creative collaborative sessions.
