"The combination of information and tasting at The Chocolate Garage was far beyond my expectations. Sunita is knowledgeable, interesting, and fun-loving. I'd go back in an instant."

Sue Krumbein, Palo Alto

"We spent a fantastic evening at the Chocolate Garage - 9 friends out for a good time. Interesting and educational, and certainly delicious. We brought a couple of bottles of good red wine and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Highly recommend it!"

Eileen Brooks

President, Woman's Club of Palo Alto

"The accolades continue months later from my diverse guests at Sunita's Chocolate Tasting Party. It's a home run when you can bring delight to an assembled group of women, from successful entrepreneurs, directors on public boards, members of Harvard faculty, high tech C-suite, international commerce and other backgrounds right up to a socialite, and have them all feeling enriched and having an experience like they have never had before.

Sunita's knowledge, charm and ability and ability to communicate on both a deep and tasty level about the universal favorite food was a high for all and created a lasting memory.

Thank you for making the event such a success!"

“The Chocolate Garage specializes in “Happy” artisan chocolates. I hired Sunita to come out for a holiday event for a large group of design engineers, and boy, were my engineers happy about the chocolate tasting! Sunita is personable and incredibly knowledgeable about the products she carries. She picked a very appropriate sampler for my group; educating us on the history, science and ethical production of chocolate while we tasted an assortment of different chocolate blends from different geographical origins. Her command of the group’s attention with her professional expertise and personal enthusiasm really impressed me. Without hesitation, I’d recommend Sunita/Chocolate Garage to event planners. I’m sure that a Chocolate Garage artisanal Happy Chocolates tasting will make your event a sweet success.” December 6, 2011

...the sort of place that one’s friends beg you to not share with the outside world. No signage directs the way, other than this small one on a neighboring door, placed there no doubt by occupants weary of being asked for pointers. This only added to the sense of being admitted to a secret society as my friend led me toward the site. read more
