CLASS: Bean To Bar Making & Tasting. Art & Science Of Chocolate Making (A Few Seats Left!)

  • Pacific Arts Market 1448 West Broadway Vancouver, BC Canada (map)


The mysteries behind your favourite food are revealed.

Taste how chocolate is made! Think you know where chocolate comes from? Think again. This workshop journeys through the process of chocolate making while following how the flavour this glorious food develops along the way.

Enjoy at least 20 samples of cacao and chocolate related products, including some of the finest bean to bar chocolate made today. We will also make our own chocolate from scratch, that is, from the cocoa bean! You will get a chance at the end to taste and take some home!

This unpacks the 3 major areas of flavour development: the genetics, the growers, and the chocolate makers. We will sample various cacao and chocolate from various makers (local and international), various origins, varieties of cacao, and the many types of chocolate available today.

We will also cover what you need to know when purchasing chocolate for eating or baking, including understanding ingredients, interpreting labels, pricing, trade relationships, and how you as an individual can impact the future of our chocolate!

This workshop is one of a kind, and will open your eyes to what really goes on behind each chocolate bar.
