Celebrate the bittersweet (maybe mostly sweet) end of a working week, by making your very own chocolate, in this fun and playful class. Perfect for a casual and hands-on introduction to chocolate making, in a real chocolate factory.
You'll first whet your appetite, by learning about the history of chocolate and about how chocolate is made, as well as about the different types of chocolate. You'll do this while sipping on a hot chocolate, made from a 17th century recipe.
You'll then choose a mould and make your own yummy filled chocolate. Fill your mould with one flavour, or combine multiple flavours - the choice is yours.
While the chocolate sets, you can keep your hands busy dipping strawberries, marshmallow, Turkish Delights and nuts into your choice of milk or dark chocolate. You might even get to then make freckles and more.
Once the chocolate sets, you'll get to taste your creations, and you'll also get a box to take home the chocolates that you don't finish in the class (you'll be making a fairly big batch, so it's quite likely that you'll have leftovers!)
Throughout the class, you'll be provided with demonstrations and feedback from chocolatier Joseph, who's been running these workshops for almost 15 years.
Treat yourself to a fantastic time, and bring along a friend or someone special to make it even sweeter. Feel free to BYO if you think it will help to get those creative juices flowing.
This class is suitable for kids from approx 10 years old and up; they'll need to be accompanied by parents / guardians.
This class is great for private events. If you have slightly less than 10 people in your group, we can still run the class (it's just that the price per person may be slightly higher) - please get in touch for details.
Chocolate making gets deliciously messy sometimes! Please bring your apron if you can, and wear closed shoes. Hair protection and everything else will be provided. Feel free to BYO if you like (optional of course).
