I've tried to be objective to give a balanced review, but I honestly cannot find fault with any aspect of the course. The location is great, parking is great, tutor was lovely & knowledgeable, course content was exactly as described and appropriate and excellent value for money. Even the other students were lovely! Will definitely be going back.
Chocolate Truffle Making & Tempering for Beginners
Join us and learn to make delicious Belgian chocolate truffles in this half day class. During the course you will prepare your own batch of decadent milk chocolate ganache from scratch under the watchful eye of Liz, our experienced pastry chef. She’ll help you understand all the processes and then you’ll get hands on making, piping and shaping your truffles; milk and dark chocolate varieties.
Liz will also share her knowledge of the challenging art of chocolate tempering, explaining why and how we temper chocolate. You will individually work to temper your own batch of chocolate which you will then use to finish your treats.
This class is designed for students who are new to chocolate or have had minimal experience but want to learn tips and tricks to develop their basic skills. It is fully hands on and there are some technical skills to master, but it’s a fun and relaxed session, perfect to share with friends!
Due to some of the processes and variables like the weather, the finish time of this class can vary a little. We suggest that students bring a packed lunch if they feel they might need it. There will be chocolate truffles to sample and a little home baked treat provided too.
All course bookings are subject to our Terms and Conditions, including our cancellation policy. Please ensure that you are able to attend the date you book, as transfers and refunds will not be offered, but you are most welcome to send someone in your place. This policy is to enable us to run our courses viably and therefore maintain our high quality standards – to explain, if a student cancels and transfers to a new date and we can’t resell their cancelled place then it means we lose out on making that place available e.g. that’s one student taking two spaces but only paying for one – it just doesn’t add up!
On the rare occasion that we must cancel / reschedule a course students will be offered an alternative date or a full refund without question.
