Thank you so much for organizing our AWESOME chocolate event. The experience and the venue were most excellent. Everyone had a GREAT time and cannot stop talking about how much fun it was and how delicious the chocolate is/was! There were many with chocolate hangovers the next day! lol Thank you so much for making our holiday party a success and happy memory.

Thank you again for teaching us about chocolate and providing us with delicious chocolates of our own! We have received many compliments and thanks for putting this workshop on and we would like to extend them to you as well - Thank you!
Dear Chocolate Dave,
I am writing this letter to provide you with some unsolicited feedback regarding
your workshops here at the Delawana Inn Spa & Conference Resort during
the summer of 2011! It is my pleasure to say that it has been a great experience having worked with an extraordinary person like yourself.
The show was a complete success every week! The turn-outs as well as subsequent comments were phenomenal. You showed a ton of dedication, enthusiasm and care to each performance. Your outstanding personality and ability to work with the resort’s clientele (people of all ages) are second to none. While maintaining a safe environment, the creativity and fun that you exhibited
were never compromised. Chocolate Tales has been a great asset to our Social Itinerary! Your willingness
to do the best job possible & go above and beyond the call of duty is unparalleled
and has definitely left a lasting impression with everyone you have ever come in
contact with here at this resort.
Our family did the Chocolate Tales at the Dundurn Castle yesterday and were just thrilled with the professional top notch presentation they did. We tried various types of chocolate, ate lots and decorated lots! They had everything down to a tee, from the informative and interesting history of chocolate, to showing the making of the chocolate, to the layered table cloths for easy clean up! I had the pleasure of meeting the owner at the end to basically tell him how impressed we were with his event. We were also given lovely little boxes with ribbon and little bags to put our chocolates in at the end! Very very good, highly recommend this
Carol Krames - Chocolate Demonstration
The wonderful smell of chocolate is in the air, everyone only wants to watch him make the chocolate, and waiting not so patiently to eat them. David Levy, owner of Chocolate Tales is personable, and accommodating to every party. Our agency the Hamilton Jewish Social Services asked him to help us at our Major Fundraiser, A Wine Tasting Party. He was a most wonderful addition, in fact people were asking me to have an evening just for him. He can help you with a fund raiser, a kid's birthday party, weddings, bar and bat mitzvah's I believe he will make any event special.
B.Newman - Bachelorette Party
Tonight was a great evening. You do a very good job, presenting and sharing and preparing chocolate. It was really delicious and fun. The girls had a great time..It's chocolate!
David exceeded all of my expectations! Not only did we get to create and devour piles of wonderful treats, we walked away with a whole new appreciation for chocolate. I highly recommend finding any excuse to throw a chocolate party, you absolutely will not regret it!
Hi David, I just wanted to give you a VERY BIG THANK YOU. for all your great effort last Sunday. You made the party a fun and memorable one.
I just want to say how much we enjoyed having you and making CHOCOLATE!!!! We all ate it the next day!
Thanks so much!!!
Thanks for this. I had a great time, as did my friend. We both learned a lot and we both cook a lot so it was a pure delight to learn new things.
The presenter - Kelly, is articulate, did not ever speak in a condescending manner, had good, light, humor. Her presentation flowed in a logical, easy to understand manner and she did not say "um" even once... a mark of an excellent presenter.
The chocolate we worked with tastes amazing, and it was clear that this was not "just chocolate".. so very rich and delicious.
I was not sure about the ginger, or the chili flavours. But, they were good experiences just the same.
The portions were very generous, and the instructions were clear and easy to follow.
At the end, we had samples of single origin chocolate. The only place in Canada I have ever had that as a retail product (bar form only) was at the Newfoundland Chocolate company, in St. John's Newfoundland, so kudos to you for introducing it to the people at the workshop.. it is so unique. I really liked Kelly's explanation about how it came to "single origin", and the variations in the environment and the effect on the cacao plants.
The funniest part to me is that I cook with cacao nibs often, and until last night I did not know how they were made.
Thank you for a lovely and informative .. and fun and delicious evening.

I just wanted to belatedly thank you for organizing the truly amazing chocolate holiday event with Chocolate Tales. It was really fun, a great way to connect with colleagues I didn’t know, really interesting…and obviously DELICIOUS!! I thought that the facilitator was super interesting, full of chocolate-knowledge and yet able to keep it light and moving quickly to keep everyone’s attention. The activities fostered team spirit, and yet if you were on a less-than-stellar team (I mean competitively speaking), there were still new skills to hone and chocolate to ENJOY!
I had a total blast and would totally consider doing something like this…for my 40th?! For my kids’ parties when they get a bit older (I don’t want to waste it on their unsophisticated palates!)? For a friend’s weding shower? So many delicious possibilities…
Thanks and happy 2014!!
I wanted to write a quick note of thanks to tell you how amazing our evening with Cocoa Kelly was! Her historical and technical knowledge as well as passion really made for an incredible team event.I have received rave reviews from everyone on my team about our evening making chocolate… thank you!
I will definitely spread the word within our organization.
I just wanted to send you a big thank you to you and your staff for such a great experience!
Every person in our group LOVED the chocolate making session and we all had such a good time. It was very informative and so interesting to learn about the history of chocolate. To be able to actually create our own chocolates was a real treat and I have had nothing but positive feedback regarding this session.
I would also like to extend a sincere thank you to Kelly! She was absolutely amazing! She is pleasant, knowledgeable and very engaging. It was such a pleasure to spend time with her and I truly appreciate you sending us such a wonderful person to learn from. Again, thank you for such a unique and fun experience and I would not hesitate to recommend Chocolate Tails! Our experience was exceptional!
All the best,
Lindsay T. - Wedding (Bride)
I just wanted to send over a quick note to thank-you for the chocolate you prepared for our wedding on October 24t. It was absolutely perfect and exceeded our expectations. We were so happy with the service we received and the quality of the chocolate. Luckily there was some left over and we've been enjoying it at home. The chocolate was some of the best I've ever had, the pairings were perfect and the ordering was so stress free.
Your team was amazing and did a great job in making our event fun and informative for our group. The experience added a nice touch to the start of our celebrations that carried right through the entire evening. Thank you for a job well done!

I just wanted to thank you for accommodating our unique needs and keeping me informed of everything leading up to our event today. Sonia was phenomenal and really had the residents engaged throughout the entire program. This will be something they will talk about for a while now and were very happy to be a part of it. Thanks again, it was such a success.
