Led by local chocolatier, Mandy Metrano, of La Nef Chocolate, you’ll learn to make hand-rolled chocolate truffles using ethically sourced, single origin, direct trade 70% Honduran dark chocolate. The cacao beans that are used to make this chocolate are from the Honduras Foundation for Agricultural Research (FHIA), a nonprofit dedicated to helping improve the lives of farmers.
Just like with wine, “terroir” makes an incredible difference in the flavor of chocolate. Explore the taste differences between various South and Central American countries of origin. Learn how to experience and talk about chocolate through touch, taste, smell and mouth feel. Learn about cacao growing regions and the process from harvest to bar.
Take home your tasting sheet with notes, a packet of information about the origins of the chocolate you tasted and a little history on chocolate, along with some truffles you made and the recipe so you can make them again (just in time for Valentine’s Day).
