#Discover Chocolate Demonstration: Hand-made Truffles and Bonbons


Learn all about chocolate in our after-work chocolate truffles and bonbons demonstration. Under the guidance of one of our Master Pâtissier, you will discover the origins of chocolate: how it is grown, the harvesting ritual and the process that turns this humble fruit into chocolate bars we all love.

By the end of the chocolate demonstration, you will understand the technique of tempering and you will have seen basic ganache being prepared and applied using a variety of techniques such as hand rolling, moulding and piping. You will also be taught how to produce moulded chocolate shells from tempered chocolate as well as how to apply a variety of professional decorative mediums and finishes.
