Working with chocolate is part science and part art. In this very hands-on chocolate class, Chefs Sarah and Mallory will teach you how to temper dark chocolate in 3 different methods; tabling, seeding, and the quick and easy “Chef Mic” technique. You will extensively work with tempered chocolate and learn to create beautiful chocolate decorations for all of your desserts! Examples of decorating techniques we will cover are cornet piping, chocolate fans, curls, swirls, cigarettes, and a flower (chocolate peony rose). We will also teach you skills of working with modeling chocolate including small figurines and roses. Yes! You will play with your food!

As with many of our cooking classes, we focus on methodology using only a handful of basic, high quality ingredients. The techniques that will learn in this class will not only enable you to create amazing garnishes, but also, being able to temper chocolate will allow you to stretch your baking, pastry and decorating skills even farther.

Oh! And because this is a Sunday class – all downtown parking is free!
