Chocolate Making Workshop

Is anybody interested in attending a chocolate making workshop?

Lisa Clarke is a trained chef who runs The Chocolate Tart cookery school in Congresbury and has offered to run a workshop for the Bristol Cooking Club at a very good discount.

The 90 minute workshop would include a talk on the origins of chocolate, how to temper chocolate, a tasting and then some chocolate making. The final part of the workshop is spent packaging and decorating with ribbons and stickers for a professional finish. If you can resist the temptation to eat all the chocolates these would make great gifts for family and friends!

This session would normally cost £40 per person but the cooking club is getting a great rate of £20. The session would be held at my place in Clifton.

More information about Lisa and her cookery school can be found at www.thechocolatetart.co.uk.

Let me know if you are interested and possible dates of interest in October or November.

    The workshop was very good, I learnt some interesting things (hadn't even heard of tempering before), it was good to see everyone! My chocolates were a bit scary looking but it was fun.

    Hello,

    I will be leaving from Clifton to meet the 'convoy' in the centre. I will be picking up Valentina who also lives in Clifton and I am happy to pick up Tania and Amal if they live close by. Otherwise I can pick them up at the meeting point. Just let me know.

    Please can everyone with a car and willing to give some of us a lift to this session come forward and let me know (petrol expenses will be shared!) I know that Danila, Claire and Astrid are three of our kind drivers offering lifts, Virginia (as long as she gets a babysitter booked) Who else please??? I need to organize the transport for the day.
    I know that at least 5 of us need a lift but not sure the latest members joining, Ezster? Justine? Tania? are you drivers or need a lift??? Look forward to hearing from you, if you could let me know by the end of October please :-)

      Hello Amal. Of course you can have a lift. The session takes place in Congresbury, about 25 minutes away. I guess closer to the time we can work out logistics. Hope you are well!

    Hello Everyone,

    I will get some alternative dates for the session from Lisa. Also, if there are more than 8 interested in attending it may be possible to attend at the cookery school if we can organise transport for everyone. I'm happy to drive and on a short journey can take four people.

    Hi Lis... The call of Chocolat is appealing!.
    Can it be done before end october ? ... porque voy a tener que ir a Madrid durante un mes a finales de octubre.
    By the way, the site www.thechocolatetart.co.uk. doesn't exist yet.
    Cheers
