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 on 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.

I also spent some time in the laboratories of perfume houses before, where I gained some interesting skills in fragrance making, which I love to share.

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

Lots of fun making sweet treats. I might not be able to fully recreate the steps at home, but I think I have enough of the idea to try. Plus great coffee, Joseph. Thank you!

Joseph was very knowledgable not only on chocolates but most aspects of food and food sciences. Great class to be in, lean venue, everything supplied and come away with a box of chocolates to share with my friends.
I recommend anyone wanting to play with chocolates a home take this course.

Exceeded Expectations!

Such a great class. My partner and I had a really fun time and felt like we learned so much. The instructor(got experience of more than 17 years as a Chocolatier) was so knowledgeable and friendly. At the end of the class we were able to bring home the chocolates we made. Both my partner and I were suprised at how professional looking they were. They use all high quality ingredients and you can tell with the end results. I loved the notes they email us at the end of class to help us recreate these chocolates in the future. Would love to do another class and would highly recommend.

Joseph was an excellent teacher. He not only gave you instructions on how to make chocolate but also the science behind it. It was hands on and kept us busy the whole time. Connie was also very helpful. I feel confident enough to go home and make my own chocolates and try different flavors. The area was also super clean thanks to Connie. Connie and Joseph were super friendly, highly experienced, and generous - even offering us amazing coffee and hot chocolate during the class. I highly recommend this workshop.

This course was amazing! The teacher was very personable and knowledgeable and supportive. We were very busy the whole time, they had planned it well so that we didn’t have any spare time. They were also very generous with their chocolate and hospitality, we got coffee, hot chocolate, strawberries, Turkish delight, and chocolate to eat as we went. The kitchen area was great for the 10 people in our course and was kept super clean by the lovely Connie. Thanks guys for a very enjoyable afternoon.

The teacher was easy to speak too easy to understand. A bit more hands on would have been better so each of us having our own equipment and following teacher. The area was not as clean as it should have been mostly the floors but over all I did feel worth the knowledge gained, the information given. In end we all did take a lot of made chocolate home.

This was really fun. The pace of the class was a little slow for me but it was fun. I was on my own and felt fine without having a friend there. Left with lots of chocolates and great skills I can use at home.

Joseph is very knowledgeable and generous with his knowledge. He has a great interest in chocolate but also teaching. The class was not too fast which gave me time to talk to the other participants. I’m thinking about doing the class again just because it was so much fun. And you come home with a STACK of chocolates!

I enjoyed the practical lessons of chocolate making and look forward to putting my new knowledge into practise .
FAQ
Can I bring my 3 year old daughter with me? She'll mostly just help me move the chocolates around and eat them.
Sam

Sure, no extra charge for this (just book for yourself), since your daughter would just be using your allocated portion of chocolates. Looking forward to welcoming you at the class.
