PLYMOUTH CHOCOLATE MAKING WORKSHOPS
Loco About Cocoa
Learn the Art of Making Handmade Chocolates
We are not taking anymore workshop bookings until mid September due to the hot weather - tempering chocolate can be problematic unless it's conducted in a cool environment.
We are offering you a unique experience to share a chocolate workshop with friends in Plymouth and surrounding areas. It could be a birthday, a hen afternoon or just friends spending time together. You will keep everything you create. What doesn't fit inside the presentation box you will just have to eat.
What you need to host your chocolate workshop - enough working space for us to gather around, we don't need lots of space, cosy is fine. A cool room – chocolate doesn’t like warm environments. Perhaps turn the radiator off an hour or so before we start the workshop). An empty shelf in your fridge to place the moulds in for 10 minutes, this will contract the chocolates and help to remove them from the moulds. Protective covers for the areas we will be working in – chocolate can be quite difficult to remove from fabrics/carpets. Prosecco for you and your friends!
Our professional chocolatier Adrian will bring: All of the stores & equipment required. Additional 6' tables can be supplied if required please mention on the inquiry form. Belgian callets ready to temper, we use white chocolate as the colours can be incredible when they are turned out. Pre-made fillings – we can discuss the choices prior to the event. Presentation boxes and petit four for each person to hold your 24 chocolates, you will make 28, that's 4 to be eaten straight away, or quality control as i like to call it. 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 – polishing, colouring, mould lining with the chocolate, filling the centres, base covering and unmoulding your chocolates. No experience is required. Plastic aprons and gloves will be provided.
