The course is designed for beginners or chocolate lovers who wish to learn the techniques required to create your own truffles, dipped products, moulded chocolates and decorative chocolate bars.
You will learn about the history of chocolate, the process from bean to the finished product and experience the different ways of tempering.
Upon arrival you will be welcomed by our in-house Chocolatier who will show you a short film on the history of chocolate. During the day you will learn various methods of tempering and see a bean to bar demonstration in one of our small conching machines.
You will then be shown the process of making truffles and chocolates using finest ready made fillings that HB Ingredients supply. Not only are these products wonderful to work with, they also have a long shelf life.
At the end of the day you will package all of your finished products and take them home with you along with an HB Ingredients apron and full course notes.
