New! Valentine’s, Spring, and Easter Chocolate Classes by Chef Dayleen Coleman

When people think of chocolate, there is a nearly universal love of the substance (with a few outliers here and there whom shall remain anonymous.) It is rich and decadent, full of flavor and potential health benefits. It reaches into your soul and wraps it in its rich, brown warmth. And when that chocolate is prepared by Dayleen Coleman, founder and creator of D’LitefulChocolat, those flavors and experiences become truly transcendent.

 

Founded only last year in 2017, D’Liteful Chocolat has already established a reputation for exceptional quality and flavor. Carried by exclusive wineries and high-end boutiques, these hand-crafted, delectable chocolates are unique and approachable, flavorful, and quite honestly, wonderful. Each time you bite into one of her chocolates, you can taste the love and attention Chef Dayleen and her amazing staff put into each and every piece. Classically trained at Le Cordon Bleu in London, Chef Dayleen brings to San Diego the best of European chocolate tradition, while infusing her own unique take on what makes chocolate special.

 

However, it should be noted that although Chef Dayleen has created a varied assortment of truffles, chocolates, salted caramels, and more, there is another aspect of the business that should have you equally excited, for she was not only trained as a chocolatier, but as a patisserie chef as well. Thanks to that training, she has crafted chocolate fondants that melt in your mouth, with a sponge that is practically lighter than air, and silky smooth crêmebrûlée with a crisp sugar topping that provides a truly satisfying crunch. Each creation is honestly delightful, and can render even the harshest skeptic mute with bliss.

 

From parties to corporate events, from her private workshops (which typically sell out) to the individual sales to people who want to simply experience the finer things in life, D’Liteful Chocolat has something for everyone. So please, don’t delay, but head over to her website at www.dlitefulchocolat.com, where the greatest problem you are going to encounter is deciding what you’re going to order first. Classes are located at SAE Kitchen 980 Los Vallecitos, San Marcos, 92069. All ingredients and equipment is provided.
