Get All Your Questions About Making Vegan White Chocolates Answered
This class focuses solely on how to make vegan white and blonde chocolates.
Do you love white and blonde chocolate?
For a long time now I have focused solely on making and working with dark chocolate, but in recent months I have been quietly working away on some excellent white and blonde chocolate recipes. Little adjustments here and there over many batches and I am now ready to teach you all I have learnt so that you can make amazing white chocolates for yourself or your business.
My hope is that it, if you are just starting out, it sets you up well for success and, if you’ve been doing it for a while, it will address the issues you come up against and help you make lovely vegan white and blonde chocolates.
In this 60 min class I’ll answer all your questions as we take a deep dive into how to make vegan white chocolate using both the Vitamix (high speed blender) and the stone grinder. The stone grinder is a traditional way of making silky smooth chocolate, but if you’re not ready to take the dive into buying a grinder, then you can start by using your blender.
What you’ll learn…
Making Chocolate in The Blender
We’ll make a batch of white or blonde chocolate in the high speed blender in order to give you options as your starting point. We’ll do a comparison between this chocolate and stone ground white chocolate to show you the differences, and help you decide how you’d like to make yours.
What Is A Stone Grinder
If you’re entirely unfamiliar with a stone grinder, we’ll get into all the details in class. This method of making chocolate is the most traditional and has been used for centuries. Before electronic machines were used this was accomplished manually using a large stone, like a mortar and pestle, but huge! Luckily today we have various machines to choose from. I’ll talk about a few of them in class and demonstrate the ins and outs of it using my own grinder.
Which Ingredients To Use
Depending on whether you want to make dark, milk, white or blonde chocolate the ingredients and their ratios will vary. In this class we will go through my tried and true recipe for both white and blonde chocolates. We’ll discuss which ingredients I use, where I get them and in what ratios they are added to the chocolate. Every ingredient tweak results in a different outcome for the chocolate, we’ll go over that in class.
A silky smooth consistency isn’t the only reason to grind your chocolate, there are other factors that come into play, such as viscosity and flavour development. Specifically where lighter shades of chocolate are concerned the grinding times (and ingredients ratios) are key to a lovely thick chocolate that can be used for enrobing, shelling or making chocolate bars.
Starting A Batch
We’ll start a batch of white/blonde chocolate in class so you can see exactly how easy it is. We’ll also cover some great troubleshooting of common issues that might arise during the grind.
I’ve been teaching this topic for about 7 years and have taken notice of the most common questions and issues that arise before, during and after a grind. I’ll address as many of those as possible in class, but cover them all in the accompanying class book.
