2017 Goo Goo Summer Chef Series

The Goo Goo Shop is excited to announce that our third annual “Goo Goo Summer Chef Series” kicks off this Friday, July 14, 2017!

The series, featuring Premium Goo Goo creations imagined by some of Nashville’s best chefs, will run from July 14th through the end of September. This year’s lineup includes:

Bryan Lee Weaver – Butcher & Bee
Crystal De Luna-Bogan – Grilled Cheeserie Melt Shop + Food Trucks
Carey Bringle – Peg Leg Porker
Tony Galzin – Nicky’s Coal Fired
Levon Wallace – Gray & Dudley

Each chef will be collaborating with Bethany Halliger, the Goo Goo Shop’s Pastry Chef, to create his or her own Premium Goo Goo flavor that will be sold at the Goo Goo Shop, our online store, and in some instances, the chef’s restaurant. Flavors will rotate, with a new chef being featured every two weeks.

Flavors will be announced on our social media channels (Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter) and here on our website as they are launched.

To wrap up the series, we’ll showcase all of the chefs’ flavors at Music City Food + Wine Festival on September 15th & 16th, 2017.

Introducing Chocolate Classes at the Goo Goo Shop

We’re excited to announce the launch of private group chocolate classes at the Goo Goo Shop in downtown Nashville! Grab a few friends, loved ones, or co-workers and come join us for a super sweet class.

 

 

Always wanted to make your own dream Goo Goo? Well, now you can.

We also offer classes where you can learn to temper chocolate, create your own designer chocolate bark, learn how to make ganache and truffles, and even get a secret Goo Goo recipe or two from our decadent Dessert Bar!

 

Learn some chocolate history and increase your knowledge while you have some hands-on fun in our informative workshops.

Perfect for corporate team building excursions, bachelorette parties, or just a group of friends that want to have some fun together and learn all about chocolate.

Every hands-on experience we offer will send you home with recipes, a Goo Goo apron, and all the treats you’ve made in class.

Currently our classes are only offered as advance group bookings, with a minimum class size of 8 and maximum of 24 due to room constraints. Haley, our Event Specialist, can help you determine which is the best format for your group, so please email haley@googoo.com or call 615-490-6685 for more information.
