Delicious news for chocolate lovers. Southborough’s cooking school is holding master classes to turn culinary professionals and serious enthusiasts into chocolatiers.
Culinary Underground School for Home Cooks is offering a five-day intensive, challenging curriculum that teaches the theory and practice of chocolate making, from bean to bar.
The Artisan Chocolate Master Course is designed for culinary professionals, culinary students, and entrepreneurs who work in the business or wish to start their own artisan or boutique chocolate business, as well as for the serious amateur.
In this advanced course, students learn the fundamentals of the science of chocolate. Central to the course is mastering the techniques of hand-tempering high-grade chocolate couverture.
Students will learn to produce a wide range of handcrafted artisan chocolate candies including ganache fillings, hand-dipped candies, molded bonbons, and truffles (and take home their creations!)
Learn from masters:
