Chef Ashley's passion for cooking and wanting to unite people through food truly shows in her dishes. She is enjoyable to learn from and has so much to share. She also stands out from other chefs since she has formal training and pastry and chocolates. I highly recommend her if you are in the area.

Let me start off by saying this is not your basic Hershey chocolate! Ashley's chocolate truffle class is a one of a kind experience that results in a rich exquisite taste in your mouth. It is obvious that she is extremely knowledgeable in the process of producing chocolate and how the beans are grown.

My experience with Ashley was nothing short of exceptional.
She taught our group of six friends the subtleties and nuances of Mexican chocolate. After learning about and savoring three different origins, she served up delicious savory courses made with what we just tasted.
If you want to elevate your understanding of chocolate and eat some sophisticated Mexican flavors, you should book Chef Ashley.
