Chocolate Making (21st September)

September 21, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Slow Food Dublin are delighted to bring The Proper Chocolate Company to Headfort Arms on September 21st as part of the Boyne Valley Food Series.

Join us for a hands-on evening of discovery with The Proper Chocolate Company and learn how chocolate is actually made – from the cocoa plantation to the chocolate we buy in shiny packaging.

Understand the types of cocoa beans, how to sort them, roast them and extract the precious cocoa nibs.

Delve into the science of making chocolate – see nibs getting liquefied, observe chocolate crystals and understand chocolate tempering. Activities of the evening:

– Examine, sort and roast cocoa beans
– Winnow cocoa beans, and collect cocoa nibs
– Create cocoa liquor
– Learn what goes into a bar of chocolate and how to identify quality chocolate
– And of course, we will taste chocolate at various stages of development!
