Saturday, December 16th, 2017, 10-12am
What better way to enjoy a shared experience in the midst of the hectic run up to Christmas. Bring you child or teen along for a hands on master class with the one and only Mama Bombon, our master chocolatière and in-house version of Vivienne from Chocolat. Gloria Dominguez, aka Mama Bombon, travelled through South America with her young son to learn her trade from plantations and master chocolatiers.
This hands on class starts with an introduction to Cacao – food of Gods. the history of chocolate, the importance of tempering and the difference between coverture, ganache and chocolate. The practical work focuses on how to use top quality chocolate to create couverture for some of Mama Bombon’s signature ganaches before learning key decorating skills including piping, using seasonal transfers, creating texture and adding natural toppings such as cacao nibs and metallic powders.
The class finishes with a celebratory glass of bubbly or lemonade once novice chocolatiers have filled beautiful festive boxes with their hand made chocolates, guided by Gloria’s wonderful ideas for gift wrapping and presentation.
