Come experience chocolate indulgence this Valentines weekend at Taku Resort on beautiful Quadra Island, BC
Indulge your senses when you experience chocolate tasting, a gourmet dinner and chocolate buffet in the ultimate West Coast setting. Chef Greg Hook will teach you how to create fine handmade chocolate desserts and the art of mis en place.
Greg Hook was born in Saskatchewan & migrated to Vancouver as a young man. Upon reaching the West Coast he immersed himself
in pastry & learned from the leading pastry chefs in the city. Greg opened Chocolate Arts in 1992 with a vision to produce chocolates that are not only beautiful to look at and delight to taste, but use as many local products as possible. Now two decades later Greg’s passionate style has evolved into one that is uniquely his own.
In 2011 Greg was appointed as a member of the exclusive Cacao Berry Chocolate Ambassadors Club. He is only one of the 12 members in Canada as well as the first Chocolatier chosen west of Ontario.
