Chocolatier Norman Love and his award-winning team of pastry chefs at Norman Love Confections will be offering a series of cooking classes this spring and summer for those interested in learning to create artisan confections and exquisite desserts.

“Cooking with Love” features courses suitable for individuals and groups of friends looking for an interactive experience. Love and his team will share some of their baking and cooking techniques with participants, who each will have an opportunity to create desserts to take home.

One-night classes include:
