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 for a half day workshop are 9 to 12.30, or 2 to 5.30
Over the course of the workshop, you will:
- learn how to make a ganache
- how to roll truffles
- how to temper chocolate
- how to dip and decorate your truffles
Along the way we will taste chocolates from around the world, chat chocolate, get covered in chocolate and at the end of the workshop you will have lovely chocolates to take home.
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.
