Isle au Haut’s noted chef Kate Shaffer is sharing her secrets on the fine art of artisan chocolate through a five-part series of workshops kicking off April 24-26 at the Hartstone Inn in Camden.

That class will focus on making molded pralines, figurines and chocolate decorations. In May, the co-owner and founder of Black Dinah Chocolatiers travels to York, where she will teach her culinary craft at Stonewall Kitchen. In June, Shaffer and island friends Diana Santospago and Linda Greenlaw offer a gourmet getaway including chocolate making on Isle au Haut. For prices and more information, contact Shaffer at 335-5010 or e-mail [email protected]
