My daughter and I joined Taystful online to make a whole host of beautiful Easter chocolates. We thoroughly enjoyed the class, with clear guidance, lovely friendly atmosphere and ended with amazing chocolates! Absolutely delighted, would highly recommend classes with Shona, so enjoyable and new skills learnt. Fantastic!

I really enjoyed the course . It was very relaxing for me. Everyone was very friendly and It was so easy to do the chocolate as Shona was explaining each step at a time !! I shared the chocolates with my friends and colleagues and they really like them! Thank you very much!

Another excellent class with Shona, learning more exciting techniques for Easter, the classes are full of information and step by step guides, Shona is very approachable if you feel you need a little help during classes and goes out her way to help you. Looking forward to the next class!

Progressive Skills Online Course: "I cannot recommend this course enough. Shona is a great teacher with a wealth of knowledge to share. The hands on 'cook along' aspect was fast paced but absolutely worth it as it gives you that real time experience in the comfort of your own kitchen."

Cake was absolutely delicious and was the subject of many photos shared with friends and family!

Privately booked group - "I thoroughly enjoyed our online chocolate making course. It was great to do something creative, with friends, learn some new skills & make lovely chocolates. I have never done anything like this before. With Shona's expertise, patience & delicious ingredients, we had a great time & made stylish chocolates. I would definitely recommend & hopefully will do again sometime soon. Thank you!"

My positive experiences with Taystful started before the Christmas chocolate making course began. Here are the reasons why- 1. I had IT issues accessing the information which were entirely my fault and Shona responded speedily and remedied the situation quickly and efficiently. 2. The information provided was extremely useful and practical. 3. The chance to ask questions was offered at each step of the way. I did have a query about one of the ingredients and Shona answered directly. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble. 4. The ingredients for the workshop were packaged well, labelled clearly and arrived in plenty of time with concise and easily understandable instructions. So, what of the actual course. Shona was an excellent tutor and was proficient at delivering an online Zoom session. Shona exhibits extensive knowledge about the art of chocolate making. It was great to participate in a friendly online learning experience in the middle of a pandemic. Not only did I learn a great deal about chocolate making but also had a most enjoyable morning. Moreover, my family and friends were delighted with the finished product and raved about the delicious chocolates. I would have no hesitation in recommending this course and look forward to being able to participate in another course in the future.

I attended a zoom class for Christmas chocolates, Shona had a kit available which was very helpful and organised when I got, the class was so relaxing and full of information that has inspired me to learn more techniques in the future to add to my business portfolio, Thanks very much!
