Looking for the perfect last-minute local gift idea? A cooking class makes a great gift and offers a hands on experience to improve skills in the kitchen, learn something new, and supports local producers throughout northern Michigan. Whether you want to plan a family event or treat your kids to something sweet, these classes offer something for everyone!
Here in northern Michigan, the summer months reconnect us to our food. From farm stands to farmers markets, fresh fruits and veggies call our attention to the origin of what we eat. While we can’t grow cacao here at Grocer’s Daughter Chocolate (GDC), we strive to stay connected to the origins of our chocolate and to share these connections with everyone who enters the shop.
