  • Identity verified
Native of Paris, I have garnered ten years of experience as a chocolate expert in both France and the United States. I have taken lead roles in major projects for Chocolat Michel Cluizel (which is one the 10th best chocolate maker in Paris), including the “how to taste Chocolate workshop” in Paris .
I have also made appearances at The World Chocolate SHOW conference.
I made both television and radio appearances in France.

Christmas holidays stand out the most to me; the reuniting of my huge family, all cooking together helping one another, and growing even more closer together.
I can distinctly remember my face covered in chocolate. It was and still remains a wonderful thing to share. I am now in a place where I am looking to share delicious experiences making and provide a chance to build similar memories.

Where you'll be

You will be welcomed as vip family in Michel Cluizel midtown location. Chocolate store/coffee shop by day and romantic French style refuge by night.
A magic place, in a dim light where you will feel as if you were in Paris seating on terrace sipping wine where you normally can’t.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 from 4 reviews.

This was a genuinely different, fun, comfortable, informative, and delicious experience. I won’t spoil anything, but Virginie knows her stuff and I’ll say that I’ll never eat chocolate the same way again. Highly recommended.

We had a great time with Virginia. She was very welcoming and spent some time telling us the story of the Chocolat Michel Cluizel business, described the process of cultivating and preparing cocoa beans for their use in Chocolate making. After that, Virginia showed us how to make our own truffles. We had a great time crafting our own truffles and decorating them. I would highly recommend this as a date activity or something to do with friends. Make sure to bring a good bottle of wine to enjoy the evening and have fun!
