Thursday, November 17th | 6:30pm-8:00pm | Chocolate Making Basics


From its delicious taste and the snap of a chocolate bar when we break off a piece to the bright sheen on a chocolate covered mango or the aroma of a chocolate covered strawberry, all of this is a result of tempering chocolate. In this chocolate basics workshop, we'll talk about the process that creates the chocolate that we eat and love: the result of centuries of discovery, exploration, experiments, sipping, experiencing, and innovation. Ultimately, it is the result of science, and we will also explore a myriad of ways that chemistry and biology infiltrate chocolate. Learn how to temper chocolate and go home with your very own creation of chocolate bark! The skills and knowledge will translate into the ability to make your own chocolate creations at home, including chocolate-covered strawberries, chocolate molds, writing with chocolate, and more.
