Who needs chocolate in February?

OK, many of us need chocolate any time, but especially in February. The Charlotte Ritz-Carlton has two Cocoa Lab cooking classes planned from 9 a.m. to noon Saturdays Feb. 8 and Feb. 22.

The hands-on classes are $75 each and limited to eight students per class. The Feb. 8 class is "For the Love of Chocolate," covering hand-rolled truffles, warm chocolate cake and chocolate creme brulee.  Feb. 22 is "Chocolate and Champagne Lovers' Workshop," with desserts designed to pair with champagne (a class of Dom Perignon is $40 extra).

Participants must be at least 18 and reservations are required. Classes include free parking, recipes and an apron. Call 704-547-2244 to sign up.

I wish there was a place in town to buy good chocolate bars. Rogue, Patric, Dick Taylor, Domori, Amadei, etc. Crazy to me that there are no stockists.
