Truffle Making Party
Saturday, January 20 at 3:00pm,$70.00
3653 W. Irving Park
Our confectionista loves working with chocolate and designing truffles, so much so that she created these "parties" back in 2010 as a way to encourage more people to work with chocolate. We invite you to join us in the back of house at our new Irving Park cafe and workshop, for the truffle-making class of your dreams. You'll create classic hand-rolled truffles with our guidance: each group will design a truffle recipe completely from scratch. No stress - we've taught hundreds of folks how to make truffles, and we make it fun and delicious!
You'll start your afternoon off with an espresso drink from our cafe. Then, taste 4 types of chocolate, hear about our truffle-designing process, then learn how to properly mix and heat a chocolate ganache. You'll create, measure, chill, scoop, and roll truffles to completion. We'll wrap up with a truffle tasting featuring everything made in class. Everyone will leave with a sampling of the truffles created that day (approximately 8-12.)
You're welcome to BYOB - we'll have glasses for ya! What could be better than wine & chocolate? We recommend medium-bodied reds, anything sparkling and not too sweet (Lambrusco anyone?) Consider staying nearby for dinner and enjoying one of the area's lovely restaurants.
Please wear close toed shoes, as we are a working kitchen. The class will last for 2.5-3 hours.
