3 hour class
Channel your inner Willy Wonka and join Meredith of Food At Heart for a flavour-filled session of chocolate experimentation!
The Joy Of Chocolate celebrates eating chocolate in a more connected and delicious way. We’ll focus on the taste of different chocolates and experiment with some surprising, but tasty flavour combinations using beautiful Pump St bean-to-bar chocolate*.
As well as designing and creating chocolate treats, you’ll learn how to taste chocolate properly (which involves more than just munching) and pay attention to different senses while doing it. We also explore sweet and savoury aspects of cacao to give you a fully rounded appreciation of this wonderful ingredient. There will be chocolate mouthfuls to enjoy on the day, plus treats to take home.
Your feelgood flavour adventure includes:
- Guided chocolate tasting, with different percentages and different origins of dark chocolate
- Flavour combining with chocolate and a range of tasty ingredients (herbs, spices, nuts, dried fruits and more...)
- Tips for tempering chocolate to give you the perfect snap and shine for your own creations
- A few minutes of silent tasting to finish the class
On the chocolate menu in September is: – Chocolate Fruit & Nut Mendiants: create delicious discs of chocolate topped with fruit, nuts and fun flavours from your tasting experiments – No Bake Crunchy Choc Slice: a bespoke ‘no bake’ chocolate filled with a mix of cacao ingredients (chocolate, cacao powder, cocoa butter and cacao nibs), plus your own pinches of flavour – Cacao Balsamic Vinegar: an unusual balsamic chocolate combination that’s delicious drizzled over salad
Ingredients are organic and seasonal where possible. The chocolate used in the session is dairy free dark chocolate. Please let me know if you have any dietary requirements.
*Pump St chocolate is one of the very best British chocolates and is much higher quality than what you’ll normally get to use in chocolate making classes.
We ensure quality. If your class doesn't reach your expectations, we'll give your money back.
