Our workshops involve tasting and making chocolates, as well as talking about it! We can explore the history of cocoa and how it is made from cocoa bean to delicious chocolate; learn about making ganaches and tempering chocolate. They take place in our chocolate workroom here in beautiful Acharn (maximum numbers are 5), and we use normal kitchen equipment so that by the end of the workshop you should know enough to be able to make your own simple chocolates at home.
Suggested times: 9.30/10 till 5.00
Having the whole day enables you to learn more about the two essential techniques to chocolate making – making ganaches, and tempering.
- make your own flavoured ganache; depending on the time of year (and the weather) you might be able to forage for the flavour
- roll truffles
- temper chocolate
- dip and decorate the chocolates
We can also cover moulding and using transfer sheets if needed.
Costs will include refreshments and lunch, hands-on introduction to chocolate making and take home all the chocolates that you have made
All chocolate and equipment will be provided, but do bring an apron and wear comfortable clothes that you don’t mind getting chocolate smeared! Chocolate making is gloriously messy.
We will send you or your recipient a voucher card through the post; the date and time of the workshop can be agreed with us by email or phone. We ask that the voucher be redeemed within six months of the order being made.
