After a short introduction, we will split in teams of 2 or 3 per tempering machine and start to temper the chocolate, aka making it crystallize! Each participant will be working with its own mold and will have to make its own chocolate shells (up to 21 per person!) then we will be cooking all together the praline filling ( milk/dark chocolate ganache - vegan & dairy free alternatives are available -) before working on mendiants. You will have the possibility to make from 5 to 15 or even 20 mendiants per person, depending on how motivated you're feeling! Following that step, you will be piping the filling inside your own shells and covering them of nice liquid chocolate, a delish! While we wait for the chocolate to harden, you will be invited to taste some real, good, hot chocolate and ask any question about chocolate making or the city of Brussels. Before each step, there will be a demonstration, so you know exactly what to do and what you have to get to! I usually write down all the recipe on the table, feel free to take a picture of them for your own records. After 2.5h you will have learned some essential chocolate making techniques, master the chocolate crystallizing process and leave the workshop with a nice golden box filled up of 35+ of your very own delicious Belgian chocolates. Whether you decide to share them or no....Enjoy! NOTE: we take up to 21 participants.
Hi! Im Titch. I have been making delicious waffles for many years until I decided it was time to move on the Belgian food chain and I started learning about chocolates! After many years of practice, I am happy to host this technical - yet accessible to anyone 12+ years old - praline and mendiants chocolate making class. I have had the chance to travel to many countries, especially Peru to learn more on the reality of the cocoa production and the whole chain from the plant to our workshop in Brussels, I am proud to use only the best fair trade chocolate, come share the joy!
The workshop takes place at my own private venue in Brussels. That's an old bar / restaurant that has been transformed to host cooking classes. We host chocolate in the morning, waffle making in the afternoon and beer tasting in the evening.
