Date & Time
- Dark Chocolate Ganache & Truffle Making
May 30, 2019
6:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Learn, Taste, and Make Dark Chocolate Truffles with Geoseph Domenichiello, Master Chocolatier & Chocolate Sommelier. We will make 2 types of dark chocolate truffles: one made with bean to bar chocolate (we will grind up the beans in class!), and one made with couvature. Don’t know what that means? Come and find out. We will also taste some chocolate and cocoa beans beforehand, then roll up our sleaves and get the cream boiling and the butter softening. You will make dark chocolate ganache while also learning some troubleshooting tips (ie, how not to split a ganache).
We will make simple yet incredibly delectable truffles with recipes you can repeat at home using a thick ganache that we will pinch and roll in cocoa powder. No tempering required! Come with your chocolate questions! Things may get a bit dirty, so bring an apron or wear something you don’t mind covering in cocoa powder. Remember to bring a clean container.
Ticket sales end the day before the event.
No cash refunds are available for the cultural events, workshop & classes. With at least 7 days’ notice, we would be happy to provide a credit to use towards other workshops and selected Il Centro initiatives (please inquire). If you give us less than 7 days’ notice, we may be able to issue a credit if we can fill your seat from our waiting list, but there is no guarantee. No credit will be issued for no-shows: whether you are able to attend or not, the instructor still needs to be fairly compensated. All tickets are 100% transferable at any time – just provide your receipt to the person attending or let us know their name by phone or email.
