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!

Online Desserts Masterclass and Online Halloween Truffle Pops - Thank you Shona the classes were great and affordable, such a treat to be able to do them from home. Thank you for making these classes available to all of us in these difficult times. You could not have been more helpful, organised and very professional.

Just a quick message to say the chocolates are amazing! In fact, my partner says they’re “probably the best chocolates she’s ever had” - and she’s a bit of a self-confessed expert!

Peanut Butter Caramel Truffle Online Course - My second course with Shona and a third already booked! Fantastic to learn new skills and Shona is a great teacher and is always patient and relaxed. Would highly recommend signing up for a course! I was a novice to start and can now make pretty good chocolates.

A massive thanks for the cake - it went down very well and Louise was stunned and it tastes sensational!

Living in the south-east of England, it would be too far for me to travel to Scotland for a 3-hour course - so fab to be able to do it online! What I like is that Shona doesn't have unlimited registrations, she keeps the online groups small so she can see what everyone is doing and point us in the right direction. Learnt some new skills, and the family loved eating the desserts - so a double win! Thank you Shona.

My second online workshop with Shona. I've made chocolates at home before but am self taught. Shona has a wealth of knowledge and delivers the lessons at a great place to allow for understanding the processes without feeling rushed. I feel like I've learned so much and have a bit more confidence to try other recipes at home. The end product was delicious and all of my friends who had them raved about the flavour. Highly recommend these workshops to anyone who might enjoy making their own chocolates at home.
