Guests will enjoy an immersive culinary experience of a guided tasting of 4 artisanal specially created chocolates. The tasting is only $15 and is delivered to recipients home. May be shipped within the continental United States.

Antonelli\’s Cheese Shop has a variety of virtual classes through May that would make the perfect way to treat Mom. You may find the current schedule at https://www.antonellischeese.com. Same day pick ups.
