LeBeau Chocolates will NOT be the Chocolatier at SPWF 18. The owner has requested a refund and to have her company name removed from the event. SPWF apparently never paid her a deposit for the chocolate tasting even though JME sold tickets for this special part of the event. Below, she states that she told JME (now SPS) weeks ago that she would not be doing the event and asked them to refund money to ticket buyers. Neither JME nor SPS has done so.
My two cents? This is a consent issue.
LeBeau Chocolates has said "no."
JME/SPS has not done anything to rectify the situation.
