    Class Overview

    EXPERIENCE, LEARN and CREATE in our Artisan Chocolate Making Workshops

    In groups of 8 (Covid capacity) explore how REAL Artisan Chocolate is made - Healthy, Pure, Energizing, and extremely Delicious. Bring your friend or significant other to dive into the history of cacao and its former use, the harvesting, fermenting, winnowing, husking process, and more.

    Learn, make, play, be creative, and dip your favorite food item into freshly melted, liquid chocolate. We will focus on 75% dark chocolate sweetened with coconut sugar. From this base, you can choose your own toppings and become a chocolatier for a day!

    Everyone will walk home with 2 CUSTOM MADE chocolate bars, some CHOCOLATE ART, and a whole lot of appreciation for chocolate :) through all that is required for the bean to be processed into chocolate.

    A plus: All our ingredients are ETHICAL & SUSTAINABLE with a positive impact in mind.

    "The chilli and orange peel one has become my favourite chocolate now! The coffee one is also excellent. After tried the chocolate bar here, it’s so hard to go back to the commercial brands. I really enjoy that I can taste the natural sweetness in the orange peel which pairs well with the dark chocolates, but also it’s not overwhelmingly sweet like the popular chocolate brands. Also, physically I can feel the chocolate is giving me energy right away, which was never the case before with other brands. Coffee was my go to energy booster but now I have a second option! I would definitely recommend this to anyone who loves chocolates. You’ll see the difference after you’ve tried it. BTW, Mara, the owner of the place, is very knowledgeable. I learned so much about the chocolate making process from her and I look forward to her chocolate workshop!"

    What an excellent workshop! Six of us girls had a bachelorette party at The Good Chocolatier last month, and we all loved it! It was full of information about the health benefits of cacao, where it comes from and how it is made into chocolate. Taste-testing the different forms of cacao/chocolate and then making our own chocolate bars was delicious and fun. The kitchen was spacious and clean, with care taken to make the workshop safe during Covid-19 too. Would highly recommend this workshop! Thank you Mara, for your expertise and passion and for hosting such a fun event for us!

    Workshop is led by a passionate young entrepreneur. It is well organized with a section about education about chocolate. We tried different types of beans, nibs, as well as different chocolate types. Mara is passionate and wants to share her knowledge so we can all understand the benefits of chocolate, support the farmers (Fair trade) and take care of our health (as little processed ingredients as possible). The second part of the workshop is hands on with pouring and decorating chocolate bars. Time to learn how to temper chocolate.
