What you need to host your chocolate workshop
Enough working space for you and your friends to gather around.
A cool room – chocolate doesn’t temper very well in warm environments.
(perhaps turn the radiator off a couple of hours before the start of your workshop).
An empty shelf in your fridge to place the moulds in for 10 minutes to help contract the chocolates.
Some form of protective covers for the areas we will be working in – chocolate can get quite messy and it’s difficult to remove from fabrics/carpets. Not an issue if you are holding your event in a kitchen area and have wipeable floors.
Prosecco for you and your friends!
Our professional chocolatier will bring
All of the stores & equipment required to make the chocolates.
(additional 6' tables can be supplied if required please mention on the enquiry form). Belgian chocolate callets ready to temper.
A selection of pre-made fillings – we can discuss the choices prior to the event.
Presentation boxes for each person and petit four cases to hold your 24 chocolates.
What ever you make is yours to eat, share or gift.
You will be given easy to follow step by step demonstrations on each process – mould polishing, mould colouring, mould lining with the chocolate, filling the centres, base covering and finally you will be shown how to unmould your chocolates.
You will be shown how to temper the chocolate for lining the moulds and then a volunteer can temper it a second time for sealing the bases.
Plastic aprons and gloves will be provided.
Chocolatier - Adrian mastered the art of chocolate making whilst working in a cookery school training chefs. He left the job and with his wife set up a small business specialising in handmade chocolates. We attend a lot of events where we talk to and sell direct to our choco-friends. We receive a lot of requests from interested parties asking about chocolate workshops, so we're taking the plunge and are sharing some ‘tricks of the trade’ with you.
Time - The workshop will take between 2 1/2 to 3 hours depending on the group size, allow some extra time for setting up and cleaning down.
Cost - £35 per person for groups of between 3 & 6 people. Groups of 5 the host will receive a chocolate gift as a thank you for hosting the event. For groups of 6 - the host will receive their workshop free.
One to One chocolate Workshop - £50. During this workshop we can cover everything listed above or cover specific elements that you would like to learn. This will take between 1 1/2 to 2 hours. We can discuss exactly what you would like to achieve prior to the workshop. Your handmade chocolates will keep for several weeks and would definitely be a talking point if you invited friends over to dine.
Area - within 40 minutes drive of Plymouth.
Allergens - You will be provided with a list of allergens for each chocolate filling selected upon request. All of the centres are made in the same kitchen facility so there is always a small risk of cross contamination. We can discuss possible alternatives if someone suffers from severe allergic reactions.
