Experimental Chocolate Club
January 15, 2017
11:00 am - 1:30 pm
Channel your inner Willy Wonka and join me for a flavour-filled session of chocolate experimentation!
Chocolate is an amazing ingredient that inspires strong reactions. It’s also the perfect pick me up in the depths of winter.
With hundreds of flavour compounds (even more than wine), chocolate an ideal food to explore as a combination with other ingredients. And it’s really delicious when you eat the good stuff.
Experimental Chocolate Club gives you the time to truly focus on the taste of chocolate and experiment with some surprising, but tasty flavour combinations. It includes delicious and ethical UK-made chocolate, produced with care and love.
This is an event that blends fun and focus. As well as designing and creating chocolate treats, you’ll learn how to taste chocolate properly (which involves more than just munching) and pay attention to different senses while doing this. There will be chocolaty mouthfuls to enjoy on the day, plus treats to take home.
Chocolate is itself uplifting, but we’ll also explore other flavours and foods that have the power to lift your spirits.
Your feelgood flavour adventure includes:
- Mood Boosting Chocolate Bark: we’ll get creative with delicious toppings of herbs, fruits and spices to make shards of restorative chocolate
- Delightfully Dipped Fruit & Nuts: get hands on with coating a mix of seasonal citrus and selenium-rich nuts shown to have mood-improving properties
- Hot Turmeric Cacao: a soothing and warming blend of cacao and turmeric to sip and savour
Ingredients are organic and seasonal where possible. Most of the chocolate used in the session is dairy free dark chocolate. Please let me know if you have any dietary requirements.
Food At Heart events blend the calm of yoga with the craft of a cooking class. They let you:
– Take time out to taste with focus
– Explore flavours while creating delicious and nourishing dishes
– Listen to your body to get to know what food your mouth and body enjoys
Places are limited as classes are kept small to let everyone get involved.
