With Robbin Warner
- Thursday, February 12, 6:30-8:30pm
Chocolate is often associated with comfort, delight, pampering, and love. This workshop offers a chance to sample different types of chocolate and to discuss how illness can impact taste. We will experiment with flavor and texture combinations, and you will make your own handcrafted Belgian chocolates. Bring your Valentine with you, or surprise a loved one on Valentine’s Day with these beautifully wrapped Belgian treats!
Participants in this workshop will learn:
- About and taste the different flavor characteristics of chocolates
- About the taste and impact spices have on chocolate
- About the health benefits of spices, dried fruit and nuts, and chocolate
- How to make mendiants (small chocolate disks with dried fruits and nuts on top)
- How to make rochers (chocolate mixed with nuts and formed into small rock-shaped chocolates)
- How to pack and wrap chocolate the Belgian way
Because we will be using nuts, if you have a nut allergy, please refrain from registering for this workshop.
