Learn the art of hand tempering on marble, a traditional french technique. Today, most companies use machines to temper their chocolate, at the Sydney Chocolate School we teach you how to do it all by hand! This is a 3 hour theory lead and tempering pracitice course

You will make a chocolate slab, chocolate bar and hand-flaked hot chocolate. Every class involves 3 hand tempers so there is lots of hands on activity involved for everyone!

Learn about the science and history of chocolate as well as the botany of the cacao tree. You will get to taste a raw cocoa bean and learn the processing involved in transforming the cocoa bean into delicious chocolate!

Everyone leaves with a certificate as well as a sample bag of one of each item made on the day (and we all cheers with the hot chocolate at the end of the class!). Please note this course invoves theory and emphasis is on the learning of the technique of tempering. The 1.5 hour class of tempering and chocolate making is less theory based and more finished chocolate making. Therefore if you would like to book to MAKE chocolates and take MORE home, please book the 1.5 hour class as in the 3 hour class your fee go to paying for the instruction and theory elements.

Love this! Our teacher (Thao) was very knowledgeable, interactive and enthusiastic which made the class so fun. We also had a good group. The tempering of chocolate was a great experience, not to mention unlimited chocolate eating! Highly recommend for couples and groups!

Excellent class, calm, easy-going atmosphere which made my first tempering experience lots of fun! The theory about the history of chocolate was very interesting, and the practical was great. Definitely would recommend this class to my friends/family.
