The Brighton & Hove Food Partnership's Community Kitchen is a cookery school where everyone can cook, learn new skills and enjoy food with others. We want everyone to experience the benefits of cooking and eating together. By paying for a cookery class, you help other people to attend cookery activities, regardless of finance, confidence or ability, and to make lasting changes to their lives.
Work with raw organic ingredients to make your own delicious chocolates in this class led by Emily, founder of Brighton chocolate micro-producer Cocoa Crystal, using only ingredients free of animal products, gluten and palm oil.
Use traditional solid marble slabs, industry quality equipment and more facts than you can shake a thermometer at! Ask your chocolatier anything you like about chocolate making – you’ll be amazed at what you might learn in these fun-filled, action-packed, 5*-rated experiences.
Whether you’ve been baking for years, got all the gear but no idea or never even touched a bain marie before... don’t worry. Every workshop is tailored perfectly so you’ll get the information and practice you need to start at home in the fine art of chocolate tempering to perfection.
Start with single origin Peruvian chocolate ingredients, mix, measure and tend to your batch. Have fun using splashes of colour and decorating techniques, make a mess with handmade liquid 70% chocolate, flavour with oils and inclusions and twist and flip for the moment of truth.
This is a fun and indulgent workshop that nevertheless has ethics at its core – a chocolate class you can feel truly good about enjoying. You will work in pairs to temper your chocolate but everyone will go home with their own chocolate creations.
