This workshop focuses on the amazing world of chocolate flavour. It includes a forum for questions for our chocolatiers, a chocolate tasting activity and each participant will also make a selection of twenty individually hand rolled chocolate truffles to make and take home with them to (possibly) share with family and friends. The first chocolate centre will be one flavour made by the whole group. The second centre will be a basic milk chocolate ganache which participants will flavour using a variety of different options to make their chocolate dreams a reality. As always flavours will be made using local, fresh, seasonal ingredients where possible and guests will decorate their chocolate with a choice of professional decoration techniques to make their chocolates unique and special. This workshop is aimed to give participants the skills and confidence that they need to make basic ganache mixes from scratch using readily available ingredients and to experiment with flavour within the chocolate centres. This workshop lasts for approximately two hours.
Participant's creations will be packed in clear cellophane packaging and ribbon tied to take home to share with friends and family (if they get that far!).
We have found that the Discovery Truffles Chocolate Making Workshop is the perfect length for team building and bonding, getting to know your group better as well as sharing a wonderful, chocolatey experience. There's enough time to really crack the chocolate making techniques and skills without the need for introducing detailed professional-level knowledge which is taught in our Exploratory Truffles workshop.
No prior knowledge and skills are necessary and this workshop is suitable for participants of all ages from around seven upwards.
For hen parties and family groups you are welcome to bring a bottle and glasses to assist with your celebrations.
The cost for Discovery Truffles for up to ten participants is £300 plus an additional £20 per person for any extra particpants. Our workshop can host up to a maximum of twenty four guests.
We are able to run workshops at offsite venues for which an additional off site fee of £35 applies for any appropriate venue within a 25 mile radius of our workshop.
