courses running in January-February at the Chocolate Academy™ Barcelona
The first term of 2016 has started at the Chocolate Academy™ Barcelona under the new leadership of Josep Maria Ribé: “We want our courses to continue to set an example in the training sector and become a great training experience for our customers, especially for their friendly, easy-going atmosphere and the accurate and up-to-date information they provide.”
That's why at Chocovic we offer three options for pastry making, confectionery and dessert courses taught by Raúl Bernal, Carles Mampel and Rafa Delgado.
