What you'll do

We begin the class, learning the principles of tempering chocolate. Tempering is the most important part of chocolate making, this is where the shine and brittle snap comes from.
We paint the chocolate molds. When the fist layer of chocolate is added to the mold, the color will adhere to the chocolate.
We make a filling, dark chocolate ganache.
Fill and cover.
Take home what you make.

Top tier cooking class. Michael is a talented chef and a great instructor. He shares awesome stories of his career while letting you get hands on with making your own box of chocolates to take home.

If you're interested in chocolate making, take this class! Michael is not only knowledgeable, but has the ability to convey what he knows. I no longer fear tempering chocolate.
