From bean to bar you will be taken on a journey from the plantation to the factory to understand and appreciate what makes good chocolate and what makes great chocolate. The class will start with a tasting of a variety of different chocolates and then it gets creative with your choice of flavours for chocolate truffles. We will also demystify tempering and show you the quickest and easiest way to temper at home with just a bowl and a spoon!
During the day we will break for lunch from The Kitchen Restaurant during which one of our bar team will make you our favourite chocolate cocktail. And of course to go with your tea or coffee we'll serve up some churros with hot chocolate sauce. At the end of the class you will have lots of chocolate treats all beautifully packaged up to take home (sharing optional!).
- Creative truffles (liqueurs, spices, nuts… your choice!)
- Chocolate espresso cake with Pedro Ximenez sultanas
- Melting chocolate sphere filled with marquise au chocolat and hazelnut nougatine
Dishes may be subject to slight change to reflect the seasonal produce available.

In the middle of the day we will break for lunch around the chef’s demonstration area. We will provide lunch from The Kitchen restaurant, all accompanied with a glass of wine. During the day we will show you around our kitchen garden and pop into our beautiful greenhouse, introducing you to our gardeners if they are tending to the beds at the time.
Finish – 3.30-4.00pm, take home your creations and The Kitchen apron leaving the washing up for our cookery school team!
