Full description
During this 2.5-hour workshop you’ll learn how to temper chocolate to craft 2 types of Belgian chocolates. The 2 chocolates you will craft throughout this experience will be as follows. Pralines: the most famous Belgian chocolate, consisting of a delicate chocolate shell with a creamy filing. You’ll learn how to make both the shell and the filling from scratch. Mendiants: chocolate discs studded with dried fruits, both crispy and delicious. You’ll make at least 30 chocolates, which you can either eat on the spot or take home to family and friends. With these easy techniques and chocolate theory, you will also be able to make your own chocolates once you return home.

    A really fun way to spend some time on our holiday. We were able to create filled chocolates, fruity and nutty disks, and enjoyed hot chocolate while our chocolates were setting up. Harry was really organized and kept things moving along. It was so fun to take away a pretty gold box of chocolates that we had made, and to have learned enough about doing it we can now attempt to make chocolates at home.

    Harry showed as much as possible in the 2-hour workshop. Sometimes his English was difficult for us to follow, but then there was enough attention to figure it out. 2 kinds of chocolate in 2 hours is quite a challenge. Melting, pouring, cooling, filling and cooling again.

    The course was only offered in English, unfortunately our knowledge of English was not sufficient to get all the information and the number of participants was too high to keep asking questions. We ended up making chocolates and hitting the class goal!
