Ever wanted to learn how to temper and make chocolate like the professionals?
Work with raw organic ingredients to make your own delicious chocolates in this class led by Emily, founder of Brighton chocolate micro-producer Cocoa Crystal, using only ingredients free of animal products, gluten and palm oil.
Use traditional solid marble slabs, industry quality equipment and more facts than you can shake a thermometer at! Ask your chocolatier anything you like about chocolate making – you’ll be amazed at what you might learn in these fun-filled, action-packed, 5*-rated experiences.
Whether you’ve been baking for years, got all the gear but no idea or never even touched a bain marie before… don’t worry. Every workshop is tailored perfectly so you’ll get the information and practice you need to start at home in the fine art of chocolate tempering to perfection.
Start with single origin Peruvian chocolate ingredients, mix, measure and tend to your batch. Have fun using splashes of colour and decorating techniques, make a mess with handmade liquid 70% chocolate, flavour with oils and inclusions and twist and flip for the moment of truth.
This is a fun and indulgent workshop that nevertheless has ethics at its core – a chocolate class you can feel truly good about enjoying.
What previous participants said: “Liked the knowledge and passion of the teacher.” “Very educational and eye opening… So amazing, a real science and art to the making of chocolate.” “Thank you so much for the amazing evening.”

Covid-19 safety measures
We’ve taken time to develop new procedures and systems to keep participants, volunteers and staff safe, find out more here. For those who have attended our classes in the past, the key changes are that we now ask everyone to wear a face covering throughout the class (except during outside breaks), we no longer share a meal at the end but will package food to takeaway, and we are of course keeping to social distancing during the classes.
Tickets for this event are £45 per person, or £89.99 (in total) when booking two tickets at once. Those booking a pair of tickets should be from the same household or bubble as they will be working closely together, whilst still creating their own chocolates.
We have a limited number of tickets available at a concession rate of £25 for those who are in receipt of a means-tested benefit, under-18s (must be accompanied by an adult), as well as full-time students. If available, these options will appear in the drop-down when purchasing your ticket.
Please note that only one gift voucher or discount code can be used per purchase, click ‘enter promo code’ to submit these details. If you need assistance please contact us.
Due to current government guidelines and for the safety of all involved, we have greatly reduced the number of participants at our cookery classes. Any cancellations now have an increased impact on our ability to run a viable cookery school. We are therefore unable to provide refunds except if there is a mistake with the booking and we are notified within 48 hours after booking. In the event of a local/ national lockdown or change in government guidelines, we will reschedule classes if necessary and bookings will be valid for the new date or can be transferred to another event.
If you are unable to attend your class for any reason, we encourage you to transfer your booking to a friend who can attend in your place. Please provide us with the new attendee’s details (for the purposes of track & trace) before the class starts by emailing email@example.com.
