East Lothian producer, The Chocolate Stag, have launched a half day handmade chocolate making experience. For just £75.00 you can spend a morning with Angela Cockerton in her fantastic artisan chocolate kitchen. You can watch demonstrations and you will even get the chance to make some of your very own chocolates.
During this fantastic Meet the Maker experience, Angela will teach you the science behind chocolate – from the importance of fermentation to the differences in process when tempering dark, milk and white chocolate. You will also learn about the cocoa bean and its transformation into delicious chocolate creations.
As well as learning about the chocolate making process, you will have the opportunity to temper, pipe and dip chocolates using techniques that make The Chocolate Stag’s chocolates extra special. And of course, you will get the chance to taste some of their fantastic products and take home your own creations!
We spoke to Angela Cockerton about the new experience:
“Chocolate making is fun! It is also very satisfying when, after completing the various stages in the process, you not only see but get the chance to taste your very own chocolates!”
