Classes at Gânache frequently become fully booked, so we require full payment to be made at the time of booking to secure your place. Payment can be made conveniently online with credit card or at the store in cash, EFT or credit card or even via credit card over the phone. Unfortunately, we can't hold places without payment
On occasion, Gânache is forced to cancel a class due to low booking numbers. We really don't like to do this as we love to teach and play with chocolate, but if we don't cover our costs we can't run the class. In instances where Gânache must cancel a class, enrolled participants will be notified 24 hours prior to the scheduled class and will be rebooked into the next available class, or a refund as required.
How to make unique chocolate bars which were very yummy. Very different to the truffle making class which involved more techniques but this class was also fun. Went through the different techniques for tempering chocolate as well as how to make ganache for the filling the bars as well as can be used for macarons.
Some tips on preparing, storing and using ganache. The class was fun with a good level of participation. The teacher was engaging.
The best way to temper chocolate. Which type of molds are best to use. As a rural person I so pleased that ganache tried their best to source most of their ingredients from Australia.
