A Chocolate-lovers dream come true... two intensive hours of tasting, not one, not two, but in excess of ten different types of chocolate from around the world! With a sparkling wine in one hand and a flavour-profile tasting wheel diagram at your fingertips, we'll dive head first into the mysterious and magical world of cacao, touching on everything from its origins and production, through to how to identify ingredient notes using our palates, as well as learn a little about how we incorporate it into some of our favourite products here at New Farm Confectionery. We'll even be treating you to a demonstration of a fool-proof chocolate-inspired canape that you can make yourself... and let's not forget your goodies to take home! Wait, did we mention the prospect of getting your hands on our secret hot chocolate recipe? Well, you can expect that too!
What to wear?
Comfortable casual clothing is acceptable. Enclosed shoes are required, and we suggest bringing a jumper along with you as it can get cool in our kitchens.
What will we supply?
Aprons to protect your clothes will be provided to all participants, but as there is chocolate involved and we will be working in an active kitchen, we recommend keeping the 'messy' factor in mind when choosing your wardrobe for the occasion. We will also supply a glass of sparkling wine to all guests over the age of 18+ years.
What is the age limit?
This class is for ages 16+ years. We do also run children's classes - please visit our class listings for more information.
