The Barry Callebaut Chocolate Academy hosts "Chocolate Date Night for Couples" next month



    The Feast: Chocolate High

    At the Barry Callebaut Chocolate Academy, you and your sweetie can learn how to make decadent chocolate treats. (Published Wednesday, Jan. 19, 2011)

    One of the worlds largest chocolate manufacturers has a school right here in Chicago.

    It's called the Barry Callebaut Chocolate Academy, and while not exactly a household name, you've no doubt you've tasted their packaged products.

    The school is actually for culinary professionals, but periodically they offer consumer classes.  The next one is Chocolate Date Night for Couples, and it's coming up on Feb. 11.

    If chocolate isn't your thing, there are several places to take cooking classes in Chicago.

    Among them: 

    The Chopping Block

    World Kitchen

    Kendall College

    The Wooden Spoon

    Whole Foods

    Sur La Table

    Ranjana's Indian Cooking Classes
