This course lasts about 3 hours. – We start by melting the chocolate and talking a bit about tempering & chocolate chemistry. This way we give chocolate particles the time to solidify the way they like it. – Then you make your own inclusion bars and solid confectionery, and we discuss a bit of history and how the processes to make chocolate have evolved. Be ready to get your hands and clothes covered in chocolate (even if you have an apron). You'll be able to select 20 different toppings and spices and you'll experiment with flavor combinations that (hopefully) you haven't tried before. – While we wait for the chocolate to set, we'll have a tasting profile where you'll guess different quantities of cacao on each chocolate type, and we'll talk about processes for fermentation and other fun facts. This course is human-friendly! That means I welcome the LGBTQ+ community, all religions, ethnics groups, ages and whatever makes you human (doggos are also allowed with previous notification). It's great for couples or small groups who want to do something personal together. Equally fun for large groups who want to make a lot of chocolate together! My goal is to get you thinking about chocolate beyond candy, but as a rich, versatile ingredient that is healthy and has a lot to offer to even the pickiest.
Hello! I'm Angélica, from México. Through my work, I try to teach others about cacao and traditional ways of eating and making chocolate which usually are different (and healthier) than the way chocolate is consumed in Europe. I source only ethical ingredients from Latin America and I carefully select materials to make sure people get exactly what they want and can get the perfect chocolate, from scratch. I have studied chocolate for almost 8 years and I've attended many courses to learn more about the chemistry and art of tempering. I started a mini chocolate factory in Oslo in 2016, called CacaoLand, and I've created this experience since many have asked me to give courses to learn how to make truffles, bars, and other chocolate creations.
I'm a big tea fanatic and I love sharing a cup of tea with people while we're making some chocolate (every now and then we…
You'll take the course in my apartment, which has a certified kitchen for awesome chocolate making! The neighborhood is mostly a residential area and it's very close to the Iceland University of the Arts (Listaháskóli Íslands). It's about a 15 min walk from downtown.
最多可有6位年满14周岁的参与者参加。家长也可携带2岁以下的儿童参加。 We're going to be using our hands mostly, and there's some lifting here and there, but everything is quite light, and you get guidance from me.
We're on the second floor so, unfortunately, it's not wheelchair accessible, but people with disabilities are welcome to attend. It's possible to bring pets and small children if we get notification in advance :D
