I've attended several of Amy's classes both in-person and online and I've thoroughly enjoyed the classes. Amy's recipes, attention to detail, and outstanding knowledge, teamed with the friendly and supportive atmosphere that she creates makes the experience absolutely brilliant. I very much recommend attending one of Amy's classes.

I have attended two days Bonbons Intensive class which was an amazing experience! Amy is very knowledgeable, gave us so much information and tips on how to do shelling, capping, how to pair flavours, what to avoid when making bonbons, where to purchase ingredients and equipment and much more. I think this is a must to attend class for all the beginners and also for those who already have a bit of experience in making bonbons. I was very pleased with the result after the class, bonbons looked amazing and sooo delicious. Thank you Amy so much for these amazing two days!

Amy was such a fun teacher, chef, personality! Being 💯 new to her innovative brilliance with chocolate and the general concept of how to create flavor layering😬, Amy skillfully created an exciting duo session that suited the skills of my vegan chef friend and myself. When you book a private or small group session, know that you should allot some time to explore the beautiful countryside before or after your session with Amy!

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 professional 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 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

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.

Marbled Chocolates 

Make some beautifully designed chocolates using my homemade white, blonde and/or dark chocolates. We’ll use a silicone mould so you can try this at home; silicone is a good place to start with chocolate making. You can add nuts, dried fruits, candied ginger and more to your solid chocolates to make them unique to you.

Chocolate Covered Stuffed Medjool Dates 

These are a fantastic treat to make any time of year! You can use any variety of soft date, the filling can easily be changed by simply swapping a few ingredients and you can choose whether you dip them in chocolate or not. They also have a great shelf life, which makes them an ideal addition to a chocolate selection box.

Truffles 

These truffles are so easy to make and only have 2 ingredients! You can change this base recipe by switching out the nut/seed butter and shade of chocolate you use. Of course, we can add freeze dried fruits, spices and essentials oils to make these pop with originality! This is another place where you can choose to either dip them in tempered chocolate or my easy chocolate coating.

Finishing Touches 

We’ll cover various easy finishing techniques to make your chocolates beautiful, without having to spend loads of time in the kitchen.

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 a box 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.

There’s countryside within 10 minutes walk of the High Street in almost any direction, and downland, stone circles and ancient Savernake Forest are literally on our doorstep and the River Kennet chalk stream flows through the town centre.

The town has remained unspoiled, retaining its historic charm and is perfectly situated on the old Bath Road (built by order of the Kings of England) linking Bath to London – the Great West Way is a rich and enticing route for visitors to explore to this day. A favourite watering hole for coach & horses travellers in the past, Marlborough is a cosmopolitan destination today continuing to welcome visitors from all over the world.
