Decadant and delicious, the chocolate truffle is a type of chocolate confectionery, traditionally made with a chocolate ganache center coated in chocolate or cocoa powder.

Other fillings can replace the ganache such as cream, melted chocolate, caramel, nuts, almonds, berries, or other assorted sweet fruits, nougat, fudge, or toffee, mint, chocolate chips, marshmallow, and, popularly, liqueur but here at Gânache Chocolate, we're all about the ganache!

In this fun-filled, hands on course, learn how to make a variety of delicious truffles so that you can impress your friends and family and become the expert truffle-maker that resides within you.

As part of this course, you will also learn the accompanying techniques of piping, rolling and dipping, as well as touching on the art of tempering chocolate.

On occasion, Gânache is forced to cancel a class due to low booking numbers.

This was an awesome experience! Would definitely recommend it to anyone who likes chocolate (so, everyone). The chef was fun and informative and the truffle making itself was brilliant

This was a truly wonderful class. The owner of Ganache was engaging and had a very interesting life story. I surprised my boyfriend with this class as a graduation present and I believe he enjoyed it as much as I did. Thanks for the wonderful experience and delicious truffles.

Fun and engaging class. Arno is very passionate about chocolate and his energy is infectious. We prepared three different types of truffles to take home, they were all delicious. While the class has some hands-on elements, some steps were done by the teachers including measuring and mixing the ganache, and also tempering the chocolate. The class was a good foundation to making chocolate however the experience could have been enhanced with more hands-on elements for the participants. Overall an enjoyable class.
