My Brother looooves chocolate, and so do I, and okay many do. Anyway I was hoping you Chowhound foodie experts could recommend something fabulous to do that's chocolate related-- A class, a tasting, a chocolate brunch, maybe even a chocolate of the month club, etc. This would be a Birthday gift for my Brother. I haven't found much in the way of classes or tastings so I come to you for advice. It should be an experience in the NYC area or something that can be ordered nationally online.
The only ideas I've come up with so far are--
--tickets to the annual NYC chocolate Show (worth it?),
--Seppi's Chocolate buffet brunch (is it worth it?? I saw some old reviews that were mixed, wondering what the current thought is on the place),
--And something called a giftybox--a sort of a gift certificate that enables you to pick a chocolate experience (except that from what I saw it's a big thumbs DOWN since the actual restaurants/events etc. listed are cheaper to go on one's one rather than utilize the suprisingly much more expensive giftybox.)
Any thoughts on these experiences, or some other fabulous chocolate experience--class, tasting, etc. you would like to recommend?
Would appreciate your insight on this.
