What you'll do
After introducing ourselves, we'll get right down to making chocolate! I'll explain the process of tempering chocolate, which is crucial to achieving the shiny, beautiful appearance of finished chocolate, demonstrate how to do it, & then you'll do it yourselves! I'll then demonstrate how to enrobe & roll truffles, as well as make mendiants.... You'll be able to taste many for yourselves and also bring some back as a gift!

A passionate chocoholic born & raised in New York, I left my career in finance & pursued my chocolate dreams, apprenticing with one of the top chocolatiers in France. 8 years since, I've worked with the best artisans in the UK & Belgium, met our cocoa farmers, seen bean-to-bar production first-hand, and have gained a deep, well-rounded understanding of chocolate. Brimming with chocolate passion, I recently started Cocoa Journey, where you can taste & discover delicious, exceptional artisan chocolates on a guided degustative tour, and learn to make delicious Belgian chocolates yourself!
