Learn everything about Theobroma aka “chocolate” (the food of the gods) by tasting and examining fresh cacao pods and beans. Anne will discuss how cacao is harvested and how it becomes chocolate, cocoa powder and cocoa butter. Students will sample chocolates from some of the top chocolate producers and small craft businesses from around the world. Then students will make their own world class chocolates.

Students will make chocolate bars and chocolate bonbons, truffles, drinking chocolate and even create a beautiful chocolate display piece. Anne will show how to work with colored cocoa butter, chocolate marbling, special professional molds and how to include the artful touch of airbrushing. During the week, students will learn how to pair chocolate with other ingredients to create edible magic.
