During hands-on classes, groups learn about chocolate through both an interactive presentation and by creating handmade truffles to take home at the end of the night. Instructors introduce students to concepts concerning the creation of chocolate from cocoa bean to bar as well as a tasting of single-origin chocolates from around the globe.
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.
