Learn More About The Food Everyone Loves The World Over
Have you ever wondered where chocolate comes from and how it’s made? Do you want to
get hands on with it under the careful eye of a leading plant based chocolatier? If so, this
class may be exactly what you’re looking for.
Learn all about chocolate and get hands on with it
This Chocolate Experience Day is a 2.5 hour hands on class for students of all levels. It’s a fun day out to have with your friends or come on your own and meet new people who share your love of chocolate!
What you’ll learn…
The Chocolate Journey
In class, you’ll learn all about where chocolate comes from, how it’s processed commercially and then see how it’s made in small batches by artisan chocolatiers the world over using a stone grinder. The chocolate we make and use in class is all natural, plant based and free from refined sugars.
Tempering chocolate is what gives it the shine and snap we all know and love. It also makes it more shelf stable – meaning it won’t melt in your hand. I’ll show you how to easily temper chocolate, so you can do it at home if you’d like.
In this class, we’re making an easy chocolate ganache and setting it in a silicone mould. We’ll then pop it out, enrobe it in chocolate and decorate it to the nines 🙂 This is a great way to make quick and easy chocolates at home!
You can make pralines using any nut or seed butter that you like and mixing it with chocolate. In this class, we’ll make pralines into little balls and finish them in two ways. One is by enrobing them in chocolate, the other is by putting them inside a chocolate cup (which I’ll show you how to make in class) and decorating them up!
Learn A New Craft
Unlike some crafts, chocolate making can be done at home using a few easy to find tools and some good quality chocolate. In fact, as you’ll see in this class, you can even make your own artisan chocolate at home. Whether that interests you or not, you can still take your new found skills and embark on a creative journey that’s also very tasty!
Take What You Make
You’ll take home portions of what we make in the class, which typically ends up being a nice little chocolate haul. All the chocolates we make in class will keep for several weeks…. if they last that long!
All chocolates are dairy, wheat, gluten and refined sugar free.
