In this skill based chocolate workshop you will be shown all the techniques needed to come away with your own luxury box of chocolates, perfect as a gift or to share with family and friends. With a concentration on provenance, you’ll not only be able to craft your own chocolates, but also develop an understanding of the process.

This masterclass will include both demonstrations and practical cooking. You will first learn how to perfect a basic chocolate ganache, ready to be turned into an array of tempting truffles with various coatings. Then, after a demonstration on tempering chocolate, you will use your new skills to put the final touches on a batch of your own caramel-filled chocolate shells. Finally, using coloured cocoa butter, you will be taught how to create and decorate a selection of chocolate lollipops.

Typical recipes/skills covered include:

  • Chocolate ganache
  • Chocolate tempering
  • salted muscovado caramels
  • hand finished chocolate lollipops

Please note recipes may change.

Class structure

Cooking with your classmates is an integral part of your Leiths experience. You will cook some of your recipes in pairs, and some independently – whatever the ratio, there is always more than enough food, and often food to take home too (foil containers and bags provided).

Your day will comprise of a mixture of hands on cookery and demonstrations performed by the chef who is running the session. The exact format will vary from class to class depending on the style of cuisine and, in the case of visiting chefs, their individual teaching style.

Unless otherwise stated, you will be eating the food that you have cooked during your class for lunch, usually with wine or elderflower cordial around a communal table. If your class does not involve cooking lunch you will enjoy delicious sharing platters prepared by the school.
