If learning how to make chocolate figurines and fresh chocolate ganache is of interest to you then why not attend one of Rococo Chocolate’s rare chocolate making classes with head chocolatier, Barry Johnson on Saturday 27th July.
Simply 4 students are permitted into each session, and you can book either separately or together, but since there are only 2 classes, we would recommend early booking.
As many know, working with chocolate is as much a science as an art, and these sessions with Barry, head chocolatier will set straight all of the confusion. You are certain to leave with a head filled with information, plenty of confidence that you can make gorgeous things with chocolate and a fantastic goody bag containing your creations alongside a set of Rococo recipe cards and extra Valrhona chocolate to recreate your glory at home.
The 'Tempering Chocolate' class from 10am – 1pm teaches you about chocolate production, tasting and appreciating good chocolate and also the essentials of working with chocolate. Tempering chocolate is something people often find difficult to pick up at home, but you’ll learn first-hand from Barry and be able to ask him questions and troubleshoot your technique as you go, as well as getting tips for recreating the ideas at home.
You will also learn how to make solid chocolate figurines and decorations with tempered chocolate, and of course you’ll get to take your creations home. At the end of the class, Barry will guide you through a personal tasting of our award-winning ganaches in our cafe.
The second chocolate making class, 'The Perfect Truffle' runs from 2.30 – 5.30pm and elaborates on how to make the perfect chocolate truffle. You’ll learn how to create the perfect texture, about which ingredients work best and how to combine flavours, and put it all into practice making a selection of hand-made truffles.
At the end of the class Barry will guide you through some of our award-winning couture ganaches, including his own flavour combinations, and of course you’ll get to take home the chocolates you’ve made.
Both classes are suitable for beginners or more advanced chocolate makers, and are a rare opportunity to learn directly from one of London’s leading chocolatiers.
