Master chocolatiers educate students about the origins and history of chocolate, conduct a tasting of single-origin chocolates, and empower students to decorate their own batch of dark-chocolate ganache truffles. CocoaNymph is opening a new location on September 15 on Seventh Avenue and Ontario Street, which will have a classroom dedicated to helping participants make chocolate creations right in their kitchen. See the class schedule.
No wider than a postage stamp, the Elphaba truffle’s small size belies its complexity. Beneath its chocolate shell, layers of white and dark chocolate alternate between pistachio-and-cardamom ganache, creating a symphony of unexpected flavours. Inspired sweets such as these have earned CocoaNymph accolades from the Vancouver Observer, which praises the treats as “exotic creations that push the boundaries of a chocolate truffle.”
Chocolatiers pass on their expertise during chocolate-making classes that allow each student to decorate their own batches. All classes take place in the shop, whose romantic atmosphere complements its chocolatey aromas. Punched-tin lanterns illuminate mauve and violet walls and the baby grand piano where staffers belt out ballads about their love for truffles.
It was such fun making and creating our very own chocolatesNatalie F., Yelp, 6/15/12
