About ICE's Chocolate Lab
The Chocolate Lab was created in 2015 to expand the educational opportunities with respect to chocolate with a full bean-to-bar manufacturing perspective. At its helm is ICE's Creative Director Michael Laiskonis, James Beard Award winner and former executive pastry chef at Le Bernardin. Its programs are accessible to professionals, ICE career students and recreational enthusiasts alike. A core objective from its founding has been to serve as a hub for discussion and the exchange of ideas within the diverse chocolate community.
