Chocolate from Tree to Truffle

In the workshop Chocolate from Tree to Truffle, master chocolatier Zach Townsend goes back to basics—all the way back. Students are presented an overview of how chocolate is made, from its origins to the definition of fine chocolate. Tastings cover chocolates of varying cacao percentages, and the kitchen portion of the class covers three simple yet decadent chocolate ganaches. At the end of the class, participants go home with a packet of chocolate and a list of recipes to try at home.
