Celebrate your love of chocolate! First, attendees will learn how to make dark chocolate ganache from scratch using stonegrown chocolate and farm-fresh cream. You'll work in teams to create a pot of hot ganache and dip bread into this delicious treat (it's like fondue). Then, roll decadent dark chocolate truffles by hand with the talented chocolate chefs at Taza Chocolate, the Boston Public Market's local chocolatier, and take home a dozen truffles to eat at home or gift to a friend!
We have several family-friendly truffle making classes that will satisfy all your wildest cravings & let you share a sweet moment with your whole family making chocolate side-by-side.

At Taza Chocolate we make stone ground, organic chocolate. Cacao is so complex in flavor that we want to let it shout loud and proud. That is why we do less to bring you more. We stone grind cacao beans into perfectly unrefined, minimally processed chocolate with bold flavor and texture, unlike anything you have ever tasted. Taza founder Alex Whitmore took his first bite of stone ground chocolate while traveling in Oaxaca, Mexico. He was so inspired by the rustic intensity that he decided to create a chocolate factory back home in Somerville, MA. Alex apprenticed under a molinero in Oaxaca to learn how to hand-carve granite mill stones to make a new kind of American chocolate that is simply crafted, but seriously good. To source the best cacao for Taza Chocolate, we cultivate direct relationships with growers and pay a premium over the Fair Trade price. We pioneered the first third-party certified Direct Trade cacao sourcing program in the U.S., to ensure transparency and fairness for all.
At the Taza Chocolate Bar, located in the Boston Public Market, visitors can watch as cacao is
ground on-site in stone mills to craft fresh hot and iced chocolate drinks. Taza’s full product line
is also available for purchase. In addition to our Direct Trade Cacao Certification, Taza is Certified USDA Organic, Non-GMO Project Verified, Certified Gluten Free, and OU Kosher Pareve. Taza Chocolate is also dairy free, soy free and vegan.
