Taystful Mini Chocolate Display Piece Course 20th September 2018 - privately booked
Remaining Places: N/A
Come along and learn some of the secrets to making a stunning chocolate display piece!
On the day we will be covering the techniques on how to make the main structure, chocolate flowers, leaves, free form creations and granite effect plinths. We will also be using coloured cocoa butter in various ways to give contrast to your centrepiece!
You will be able to take home your finished display piece of approx 40cm in height to impress your friends and family (NB, they are fragile, so there are no guarantees of them arriving home in one piece!).
Students should have previous experience working with chocolate, and be ready for a very intensive focused day of work, spent mainly on your feet.
Restrictions: This course is only available to those over 16 years of age.
NB. Although the showpiece is made for display rather than eating, please be aware that ingredients we use will contain: soya lecithin and milk. Traces of gluten, nuts, eggs or peanuts may also be present and are regularly used on the premises. Artificial colourings will also be used.

This course is taught by Shona Sutherland, winner of the Chocolate Category of the Scottish Baking Awards 2014, the Chocolate Category of the National Chocolate Awards at the Perth Chocolate Festival 2014, Gold Medal and Best in Class Winner at the Scottish Culinary Championships in the Chocolate Display Class at ScotHot 2015 and Gold and Silver Medal winner for filled chocolates at ScotHot 2017.
Time: 9am until 6pm (but could be later depending on focus of attendees)
Bring a snack lunch (and tea if you think you'll need it!) to have during the day. Food is also available to buy locally. Wear comfortable kitchen safe shoes (no open toes or slippy soles). Aprons will be supplied. The kitchen can sometimes feel cooler than the outside temperature, so unless mid summer, bring an extra layer!
This picture is a guide to the techniques we will be using, but not necessarily representative of the actual piece.
Displays may be made to a seasonal or other theme.
