We offer chocolate classes for beginners, as well as intermediate and advanced students.
Ever wondered why after you melt chocolate it never sets up with snap and shine again? Why your cookies stick together after you dip them or drizzle them in melted chocolate? We can solve the mystery.
DON’T LET THE SCIENCE SCARE YOU
Not to get too science-y here, but, once chocolate is melted it loses its 5th crystal, also called the V crystal. We show you, in a very simple way, how to recreate the lost crystal. You will then be able to melt the chocolate and successfully temper (also called crystalizing) the chocolate.
WHAT YOU WILL BE ABLE TO MAKE
Once you have mastered tempering you will go on to make your own chocolate bars and filled bonbons. You will be able to place solid walls of chocolate around your cakes and cheesecakes. You will even be able make your own chocolate decorations!!!
COMPLETE WRITTEN INSTRUCTIONS TO TAKE HOME
We provide you with complete written instructions, in addition to hands-on learning, as well as a list of suppliers so that you can buy your supplies at home and recreate what you made in class.
GREAT EDIBLE GIFTS
The confections you make are perfect gifts for teachers, friends and family. You may even go on to establish a side-hustle (side business) of your own. Many of our former students who have taken chocolate classes for beginners now have their own small businesses and we couldn’t be more proud of them.
Chocolate Classes for Beginners is offered as a private lesson, but if the student would like to bring family and friends along we will teach groups of up to six. The first class includes a professional chocolate tasting, understanding of where chocolate comes from and how it is grown and produced. We go on to learn how to work with it to create beautiful and delicious confections. Each student goes home with a lot treats to share (or not). This class is three hours in length and there is a lot of chocolate eating involved, if you like! The class is not only fun and educational but also delicious.
Please contact us for more details. We’d love to schedule a class for you or your group. This class is a wonderful couples experience, family activity or team-building event.
