|Better Baking With High-Test Chocolate...
July 25, 2014
Thank you so very much for a delightful and professional tour of Michel Cluizel Chocolatrium--- we Hill residents thought it was THE BEST trip this year!! We thoroughly enjoyed your history of chocolate making, the process of beans to bars, and the delicious lunch with pastry and chocolate tasting!! The strong, good values established Mr. Cluizel are a delight to see in today’s “crazy” society…and we are so happy that we shared the day together. Bill, Amy & I look forward to visiting the Damville facility next time we visit with our French cousins in Normandy!
Again, our many thanks for such a special presentation--- fondly, the Lutzes…& all the Hill residents

Thank you so much for a very lovely afternoon. I think everyone enjoyed the education and the tastings! I know the woman sitting next to me is coming back. She was taking copious notes since she was a food taster or something in the field, in a previous life's adventure.
And I'll have to see if the chocolate recommendation is helping Cassandra to sleep.
Thank you also for the picture!
Now on another subject, the two women that showed up, were originally scheduled for the June 26 the trip. Not sure where the confusion occurred. But I wanted to see if since we already paid for the both of them if you might be able to extend a gift certificate of sorts for them to come back on another date.
Just let me know if you might be able to do anything for them.
Had a really wonderful time and a lovely afternoon chocolate buzz.

Thank you so much for your kind words and for giving us such an enjoyable and informative tour of Michel Cluizel last week. I have received such positive feedback from all of the girls and parents who attended - we learned so much about cocoa and the chocolate making process. And we all agreed that it was the best chocolate we ever tasted!
Thank you again for your help and support!

Cher M. Green,
Yesterday was absolutely fabulous. We sent a picture to Gino who tweeted out the event. Please look for a large envelope that should arrive by Friday. Each student wrote a personal thank you. They are divided between yourself and Jacques. The students were still on cloud nine today. They loved every part of the experience that you offered them.
Thank you so much, We are already looking forward to next year!!!

Alan, Thank you!
We had a wonderful time and can not thank you enough for the
fantastic tour and absolutely delicious chocolates and pastries as well as
the lunch. I have received incrediably positive feedback from the students.
I did a follow up lesson today and those who did not attend the field trip
were very jealous. We will definitely be back next year and I hope to
include the Spanish classes at West as well!

I want to thank you and Jacques for such an enjoyable--and delicious--lunch/tour yesterday. Kevin loved it, as did the rest of our family. What a wonderful way to celebrate his first 50 years! Your warmth, knowledge and hospitality made it a very memorable event. We're looking forward to tasting the various chocolates we brought home. I'm sure we'll be back for more!

Dear Mr. Green and Judith,

Sharon and I have been teaching for a number a years and have taken students to different venues for field trips. The experience that all of us had today was inspiring. Your professionalism in organizing 62 students for the tour and lunch was above and beyond. All of learned so much about the history of chocolate and how chocolate is made at Michel Cluizel. The tasting experience was phenomenal and the lunch was wonderful.
The students spoke about it on the bus as being one of the best field trips they have ever had. They carried their experience back to their math, social studies, English and science teachers who expressed how enthusiastic they were. I could not have asked for a better learning opportunity.
We will pass along to others how wonderful and engaging the experience was.
Merci mille fois,

We want to say a huge “merci beaucoup!” for the fantastic time that we enjoyed with you on Friday, May 3rd! It was a wonderful experience for all. We loved learning all about the history of chocolate in Europe, and about how chocolate is made even today. And of course we especially loved tasting the finished products. Everything was designed very well with young people in mind, and the tour was the right combination of visual, listening, and tasting. It was fun to watch your chefs at work!
So thank you again so very much for your very warm welcome, and for all the time and attention you gave us before and during our visit. We eagerly look forward to next year!

I just wanted to send you a follow up email to thank you for an incredible visit to the Chocolatrium! Each of my students had a great time and we talked about the trip the following day in class. I asked the students about what they had learned and what they found interesting. I appreciate all that you and Jacques did for us and look forward to scheduling a trip for the next school year! I have shared our experience with co-workers at school as well as friends and many have asked me if the museum is open to public
i.e Can individuals visit? I will be spreading the word!
Thank you again!
