Chocolatier since 1994

My name is Joseph, and I started Kimberley Chocolates to produce high-quality chocolates in Sydney. I held a BSc in Food Science and wanted to make great chocolate more accessible to our community, including by combining it with flavours like chilli, lemon myrtle, and quandong (Australia's 'native peach'). Kimberley Chocolates won the gold award at the Royal Easter Show Chocolate Competition, and I started to appear in the media more often. People started contacting me to learn more about chocolates, and I realised that there is a great need for chocolate education, and that's where our chocolate workshops started!

But my passions and skills don't just stop at chocolate, I've also spent my fair share of time in perfumeries. I'm qualified in Organic Chemistry and Food Science from the University of NSW and worked for many years with the extraction of oils used for fragrance and food flavouring as well as at Unilever in the laboratory producing and testing perfume. Six years ago, I studied perfumery and with his my newly-refined sense of smell and skills in producing olfactory compositions, I began creating my own perfume. This led to sharing my knowledge and skills with others and three years ago I began running fun, hands-on perfume making classes in Lilyfield. As it is difficult to run classes during COVID-19 the Craft Perfume Box was created to bring the perfume-making experience to your home.

My teaching style is playful and fun, and very hands-on - the more sampling and laughing that happens, the better!

My friend and I enjoyed the class immensely! We are more technical cooks so learning the science behind it was so interesting and useful . for example making ganache and the different ratios of ingredients and how to easily temper chocolate. Joseph is such a knowledgeable and fun teacher - thank you!

Joseph is one of the best teachers i’ve had for perfume making. Absolute legend. Allowed me to make 3 30ml bottles of perfume today as well as the last class I participated in last year. Joseph knows what your fragrance needs to give it that extra kick. Attending this class always feels like i’m a kid in a candy store, I could honestly make fragrances all day if I was allowed to. Each class I attend always boosts my passion and motivation to become a professional perfumer. I will definitely be back in the future. Thank you Class Bento for the  + more

Absolutely loved this course and Joseph was so passionate and knowledgeable. He knew exactly what was missing in our scents to make them better, including what combination of scents worked together and what ones didn't. It was also really great to have a small class size of ~10 which meant we got lots of one-on-one help. I would highly recommend this course!

Ultimate Chocolate Making Class



It was a very slow start. Full hour went by without people having even done anything but watch. Picked up after that but theres no reason people cant make ganache at the same time. Good from then onwards, but finished 40mins early and felt like everything was being dragged out to kill time. However it was 39degrees so maybe the heat impacted the session? Joseph was lovely when he got going. Made ganache,  + more

Perfumery is a wonderful art and if you want to get involved, Joseph is the man to see. This workshop was such fun, and you get to take home what you make. Listen to his instructions, take a lighter hand with combination, and you’ll come away from this a little wiser and with goodies to boot.

I can not rate the Kids Chocolate Workshop high enough! It was amazing Joseph you were fantastic with the kids and they all had the best day. You truly made my daughters 9th birthday so memorable.

Comparing the 2 classes, the other class I did gave more background on the different types of chocolate with samples (white, dark, milk). Also got to make a few more different chocolates to take home which included teddy lollipops, hot chocolate stirrers and the truffles (like this class). Maybe  + more

The big class started on a slightly serious note and it seemed a bit overcrowded to begin. Joseph soon had everyone relaxed and having fun learning how to make filled chocolates or truffles. He and his charming assistant soon had everyone eating out of their hands and managing what had seemed a big group at first. I would be surprised if there was anyone that didn’t enjoy the class, gain useful information and the ability to make truffles. Highly recommend it.

We made ganache-filled chocolates in molds. We learned about the origins of chocolate and the coco bean, and also, the different types of chocolate. We enjoyed a sample of rich hot chocolate and ganache. Our teacher, Joseph, was engaging and accommodating, particularly for the children in the presence of a large adult group. He explained concepts very clearly and was very helpful. It was obvious that he clearly enjoys what he does. Connie was also wonderful and very personable. Great care was taken in encouraging proper safe food handling. I would  + more

I loved the perfume making class. Our teacher Joseph was very knowledgeable and helpful and encouraged us to experiment with all the scents. I made my own perfume and am so pleased with how it turned out. Since wearing my own personalized scent, I have had many compliments on its fragrance, which lasts for hours. Making perfume is a complex art but it was so enjoyable smelling the different aromas and trying to mix them into our own personalized scent. It was a lovely way to spend 2 hours and I would certainly do this class again.

Joseph incorporated learning into the workshop by sharing some history and facts about chocolate and of course the practical/fun side of creating and EATING the yummy chocolate. GREAT value for money, thank you

My friend and I had a terrific time with Joseph in the workshop! So much fragrances, so much fun, and Joseph has so much knowledge and experience to share! No questions is ever too hard for Joseph to answer, and there is no stuffed up that he can't fixed either (provided that we follow his instructions to begin with). The only suggestion is perhaps, to have a smaller class size or a support person, as Joseph tried so hard to give his attention to everyone of us, but overall, it was a great day and we enjoyed it so much!

The chocolate also ended up being some of the best I have ever had!

Fun Chocolate Truffle Workshop review by Jen Wong


Reply from this teacher:

Thank you for your feedback although you have played with the truth a little.

- The area is around 60 square meters
- We had 28 participants and three teachers, around 9 people per teacher.
- We had a class in the morning, some of the moulds were used. Each person is provided with a pair of gloves to wear. The mould is only soiled with chocolate. When you are working with chocolate you wear gloves, the only residue on the mould is cocoa butter. The cocoa butter will help the chocolate to release from the mould.
- I did not see any participants without gloves, if I do see them without gloves, I will ask them to put the gloves on. If you were concerned, you should have asked one of the three teachers to ask the glove free participants to put the gloves on.
- The summary of the workshop on the website is well set out, you make chocolate filled truffles in a mould. The process of making chocolate from the cocoa mass to chocolate it will take from 36 hours to 48 hours. We do not have accommodation for people to stay overnight.
- You did not mention how much your partner enjoyed dipping Strawberries, Turkish Delight, and Marshmallow in chocolate and eating it.
- The summary of the workshop is set out as follows.
- A brief history of chocolate.
- Each one will receive a mould to make filled chocolate.
- Three ganaches are provided to choose from.
- We talk about how chocolate is made and open

While Joseph was perfectly nice I was hugely disappointed with this workshop and I thought it was very expensive for what it was. I paid $100 for this class because I genuinely wanted to learn something about how to make perfume not to just throw a bunch of scents together in a bottle and hope for the best. The class was poorly conceived - we weren't educated about how scents fall into different categories e.g. floral vs woody vs oriental, nor were we given any guidance on which scents worked well together, nor were we advised on ratios or volumes.  + more

Joseph was a great teacher. The group was very happy with this workshop. It was fun and great to take home 2 bottles of fragrance that we personally blended ourselves. Expect a lot of fun more than learning about making perfume. Joseph does give a background to perfume history and touches on the top, heart and base notes but its only a 2 hour class and most of that time appropriately goes into the blending process. Joseph will help with the end product if it needs a little more of this or that. Fun and interesting!

Fun Chocolate Truffle Workshop



Poor location for a work shop as everything looked like it was dirty (rotting flowers in one corner attracting tiny flies, the mould most people used was not clean). Exposed wiring didn’t make the place very nice - or safe looking. Instructor was too eager to step in and “help” which meant you didn’t get to do a lot yourself. You had no choice in which mould you were using (it was advertised there would be a choice) and no choice in filling. There was no talk about tempering chocolate (let alone doing it) and the fillings were already  + more

We had a great time making perfume for my 40th Birthday. Our teacher Joseph was lovely and very informative. I highly recommend this place for a perfume workshop.

Make Your Own Fragrance / Perfume Workshop



The fragrance class was heaps of fun! It was very hands on and we were encouraged to be creative, but our teacher Joseph also gave us guidance and he really helped me to understand how perfumes work. His style was very relaxed and he made our small group feel at ease. The class itself was surprisingly good value because we got to take our creations home. I actually want to to do it again so I can come up with more combinations!

Fun Chocolate Truffle Workshop



Great afternoon spent making chocolate, perfect for a group of friends or a couple. The instructor was friendly, professional and made every member of the class feel welcome. He was very informative and had a thorough knowledge about the making of chocolate and where the ingredients originate from. It was nice to have a product to take home with you.

Kids Chocolate Workshop (Private Groups)



We organised a birthday for our eleven year old with 6 of her friends. Joseph was brilliant , entertained the girls solidly for two hours and chocolates were fantastic. A very happy afternoon.

We had an amazing experience. Joseph and Connie were great. We learned how to fill chocolate as well as the history of chocolate. Would definitely recommend this as it makes an excellent gift or team event.

Make Your Own Fragrance / Perfume Workshop



This is a fun interactive informative sensory fest. Should have brought my 13 year old but got to go home with scents and a little more clarity about what I like and confirm what I don’t like. Joseph (Teacher) let’s you get on with it and available for questions and suggestions.

Fun Chocolate Truffle Workshop



Had a great time making our own chocolates. Learned a lot, not only about chocolate making, but also about the history of chocolate. The bonus hot chocolate was the best I’ve ever tasted. I hope to do the Ultimate chocolate class too.
