Get stuck in and create a selection of amazing Christmas-themed chocolates under the guidance of our professional chocolatier!
Hosted by a professional chocolatier, participants will get hands-on right from the start as they create their own handmade chocolates. Participants will learn how to create chocolate ganache from scratch, as well as how to temper chocolate and finish their creations using a variety of dipping and decorating techniques.
Once you have been welcomed to what will be your “factory”, our head chef and Chocolatier will lay down your challenge – To design, create, package, and market your very own box of mouth wateringly sumptuous festive chocolates and truffles! Naturally there will be lots of tuition along the way, and participants will learn how to temper chocolate, coat and decorate their chocolates, and even make flavoured centres, using a whole host of flavours, coatings, and colours.
Each team will be required to present their finished chocolates to our judges at the end along with a winning sales pitch. Each team (and their creations) will be judged on a variety of different criteria including presentation, sales pitch, market appeal, and of course taste (for face to face events)!
This event can be run in both face-to-face or virtual formats making it a great option for both remote events and in-person events.
Face-to-face events can be run at a variety of venues such as offices, conference centres, sports clubs, or hotel meeting rooms (venue costs not included). All of the equipment and sundries needed for the event are provided and each activity will be run by an experienced event manager (along with additional event crew) who will be on hand from start to finish to ensure everyone has a great time.
For events being run virtually, we will post an event hamper to each participant in advance of the event. This will include all the ingredients they will need for the activity, as well as a chefs hat and disposable apron. Participants will need to provide some basic equipment which is readily available in a majority of home kitchens. These hampers will be delivered (sadly not by the Big Man himself) direct to participants’ homes a few days prior to the event.
On the day of your event, participants simply need to join a video call that we set up, where they will be greeted by their head chef. once everyone has joined the call and the introductions are finished, it’s time to get started!
