Bean To Truffle
So you think you’ve made truffles? Think again! In this class, we will actually make chocolate from scratch, that is, from the cocoa beans themselves. Then we will use that chocolate to make a simple yet extraordinary dark chocolate truffle ganache, which we will turn into truffles. We will also make another dark chocolate truffle using chocolate made from a cacao of a different origin/type than the first. You’ll get a chance to learn about how different cacao and make for different tasting dark chocolate!
Even if you can’t make your own chocolate from the bean, these ganache recipes will be easy enough anyone can repeat them at home using whatever chocolate you wish. You will walk away with recipes, truffles, literature, and a lesson on ganaches including troubleshooting, tips, and tricks.
It will be held at the Italian Cultural Centre in Vancouver.
