Quotes from 2016 attendees:

I feel like I learned so much and the class definitely passed expectations.  I feel like the class is just perfect the way it is.

Love this class.  I’ll take it every year! She always delivers and delights!

Loved it! Informative, interesting, delicious.





Gail Ambrosius realized her dream of becoming a chocolatier in 2004, after the nudge of a lay-off notice from the State of Wisconsin, where Gail was a cartographer. Gail Ambrosius-Chocolatier has grown into a thriving neighborhood business, serving major restaurant and catering customers, web customers, and local fans who visit for “just one” dark chocolate truffle. Gail and her staff have been recognized by Oprah Magazine, Martha Stewart Living, Bon Appétit, More Magazine, The Food Network and countless bloggers. In 2012 Gail was named one of North America’s top 10 Chocolatiers by Dessert Professional Magazine. While all the press is great, we are happy to be here in Madison making chocolate for our neighbors and friends.
