    NYC Chocolate Walking Tours

    I have worked from rented kitchens, made chocolates for wholesale and farmers's markets, thinking "someday" my own place. That isn't going to happen for me, so why not escort chocolate lovers to my favorite shops in New York City Twice I have led small groups of about 10 friends to visit some shops. I used email to reach out to 5 of my favorites telling them I was bringing a group and requesting samples. All 5 graciously responded and treated my guests to samples. My group was thrilled and excited by the attention and some made purchases. I enjoyed the activity as well. The walk, the talk and the chocolate made everyone happy. I did not charge anything for these 2 tours. I would like to now design a monthly tour of these chocolate shops and charge a fee. I am wondering on how to approach the chocolate shops to set up visits where they will provide samples for up to 15 people. If I am now charging a fee do I need to purchase samples ahead of time ? I am wondering how to set up a good relationship between myself and these chocolatiers. I am looking to the experience and ideas of those of you here who might be able to help me.
  4. Yes, Kerry, I look forward to that
  5. Unfortunately the way my month of May is unfolding, I will not be able to make the trip to the workshop. I was so looking forward to it and hate that I will miss out on meeting everyone and learning new ideas. So therefore I am off all the lists. I do hope I will get to attend one in the future.
  6. Update: Max will not be able to attend , please remove her from all. I, Carol, will attend the Workshop, Afternoon Master Class Bars and the Saturday Night Dinner Payment coming. Thanks
  7. Please add Carol Nd Max to Master Class Bars

  14. I want to thank everyone for the valuable help. The generosity of the people on this forum is amazing. I gained confidence to keep trying and I am getting moderate success.
  15. Thank you so much for your replies Robert and Jim. The comments were helpful. I have to remember that the chocolate is always the boss and I have to just keep working at it. An EZtemper is on my wish list.
