Spend a few hours with Nenette to learn a little about chocolate. Find out where chocolate comes from, some background about how it has arrived in the bar form which we know and love today as well as how to enhance your chocolate tasting experience (and yes, I appreciate you probably know how to taste chocolate already!).
Finally, its time to get chocolatey – find out how to temper chocolate and to make truffle fillings: have a go at making your own chocolates yourself. There will be a chance to explore flavours and some different ways of putting truffles together. And of course you take home the chocolates that you have made to amaze your friends and families.
A perfect activity for groups of friends or a great way to meet new ones. Try making chocolates as a corporate team or indeed for hen party activities. Nenette is happy to accommodate small groups of up to 4 people in her own chocolate workshop or to come to you. For larger groups, village halls with their own kitchen facilities, for example, make very good workshop venues.
Please allow at least two and a half hours for your workshop. You will be provided with all the equipment and ingredients you need including an apron. All Nenette asks is that you come prepared to get chocolatey! Please wear flat shoes and tie any long hair up to keep it out of your way to that you can concentrate on chocolate. Wear items of clothing, such as sweatshirts and tea shirts, that are not likely to join your ingredients in the chocolates i.e. no wool or mohair! Finally, please don’t bring your precious jewellery to the workshop as it will get covered in chocolate too!
Where you don’t have time to devote half a day to making as well as learning about chocolate, or there is a larger group (i.e. 15 plus) to accommodate, Nenette is happy to demonstrate how to make chocolate truffles to you. You still get to take away (or more likely to eat!) the truffles that are made during the demonstration. Please allow about 45 minutes to an hour for a Chocolate Demonstration. Perfect also for groups of friends and corporate events.
