A fine chocolate is like a fine wine: full-flavored, delicately structured, and inadvisable to consume while walking on stilts. Construct your own distractingly delicious delicacies with today’s Groupon: for $37, you get a two-hour chocolate truffle-making class (a $75 value) at Now We’re Cookin’ in Evanston.
Now We’re Cookin’s truffle-making class is taught by Mary McMahon, winner of the 2007 Jean Banchet award for Best Celebrity Pastry Chef. The hands-on course teaches confectionary protégés to form perfect chocolate spheres that melt in their mouths or on the radiators of their cars. You will learn basic truffle techniques, and everyone is encouraged to bring their own flavor to roll into existence. Bonbon beginners and advanced desserters alike will leave class with their own truffle creations. Students are bestowed with the recipe, the knowledge, and the courage to construct cocoa-laden treats at will to share with friends, coworkers, and tax collectors.
The truffle lesson includes a complimentary glass of bubbly to get the creative juices flowing, as well as samples of Mary McMahon’s own delectable delights. If time allows, Chef McMahon may make something special with that extra ganache or regale you with tales of chocolate-related political scandals. To scope out upcoming classes, see here to reserve or call ahead. More classes will be added to handle demand.
