Our hands-on Chocolate Workshop provides a marvelous way to spend a Sunday morning among friends! Even culinary novices will leave with a full understanding of where chocolate comes from and where it’s going. Learn to make show-stopping truffles filled with things like seasonal fruit ganache to chocolate peanut butter!
It’s surprisingly easy once you understand a few essentials, plus a few secrets from our Chocolatier-in-Residence, Meg Murray of Thunder Pig Confectionery.
Here are some of the fun things included in your Workshop:
- Understand the chocolate process from bean to bar
- Learn about chocolate history and how a bitter fruit became the “chocolate” we know and love today
- Roll and dip your own truffles in a variety of delicious toppings
- Learn how to enrobe chocolates
- Find out all you need to know about piping, shaping and coating
- Learn to package your handiwork for maximum “WOW factor”
- Discover why today’s varietal chocolates are becoming wildly popular
You will leave the Truffle Making 101 Workshop with a box of truffles you made yourself (that you can indulge in later, or show off to your friends and family), along with the recipes so you can make them again at home!
