Fundamental Chocolate Techniques
Chocolate forms the backbone of many of our most beloved desserts and confections, yet the complex techniques required for success often elude many cooks. Building upon our introductory bean-to-bar experience, students will further utilize our exclusive house-made chocolate in finished preparations with a range of origins and flavor profiles. In this demonstration and hands-on class, students will learn the fundamentals of chocolate product identification, basic tempering, molding, and decoration techniques, as well as finished confections and desserts that best showcase chocolate’s alluring properties. Recipes covered in class will include Single-Origin Bonbons; Chocolate Caramels; Chocolate Crémeux, and Chocolate Ice Cream. Students will leave the class with samples of the items produced, and exclusive bars available only at ICE.
