Chocolate Truffles with Nenette. Sunday 10th March 10.30am-12pm

Spend a relaxed Sunday morning with Nenette from Nenette Chocolates learning about chocolate and creating your own chocolates to take home to amaze your friends and families.

Nenette will share chocolate stories with you while she shows you how to temper chocolate and to make flavoured truffle fillings. Chocolate has some incredible stories. Find out where it comes from and some background about how it has arrived in the forms which we know and love today. While she does this, she will also explain how you can avoid some common pitfalls so you can make your own chocolates later at home too. She will also demonstrate how she makes truffles, including the decorated shells, using a slightly different method too. Then, its time for you to get chocolatey! Using the tempered chocolate and the filling that Nenette has made for you, you will create your own truffles in ready-prepared chocolate shells. As chocolate that has been tempered correctly sets within around 5 minutes, you can be quickly on your way with your beautifully packaged treats!

All ingredients will be provided. Suitable for age 16+ Please note: due to the nature of the food being prepared, this workshop may not be suitable for everyone. If you have a specific intolerance please contact us in advance of booking.
