'I have always struggled with tempering my chocolate and never really understood why sometimes it comes out fine and sometimes it's complete disaster.I'm so glad that I booked on your course, Magdalena, because I finally learned how to temper my chocolate and now I even understand how to correct it when things go wrong. Since attending your workshop last week, I already created perfect chocolate lollipops for our daughter's birthday party. People were surprised when I told them I made them myself! That made my day!

I've recently started to make chocolate treats for local charity markets, but I could never get my chocolate tempering quite right. My husband bought me your course as a birthday gift, because he knew how disappointed I was after my last market when everything bloomed in the cellophane bags during the day.
I really enjoyed your course, Magdalena, you are so knowledgeable and your enthusiasm about chocolate is very catching! I came away inspired, full of ideas for my next chocolate makes and determined never to be defeated by the chocolate again!
'Great chocolate tempering course! I thought I could work out how to temper chocolate myself - I mean how hard can it be to melt down a bit of chocolate! But golly, how wrong was I? After several batches, when I was getting different results every time and couldn't quite work out what went wrong, I booked myself on your course. I wish I've done that straightaway, as I could have saved myself a lot of time and some badly bloomed and burned chocolate.

'I actually booked this chocolate tempering course, because I work in a catering and wanted to add chocolate work to my skills. We are always so busy at work and I don't have the time to practise anything new. The day has given me a really good foundation to carry on experimenting with chocolate and more importantly not be scared if something goes wrong!
'I work in a fairly pressured job and for a while I've been looking at what else I can do with my life, that doesn't just involves sitting at the computer desk all day. I've started to make chocolates already before I attended your course, but found that I never achieved the consistency that I needed to make my chocolates presentable. Now, I actually understand the technical side of chocolate tempering I know what to look for when I make a mistake. Thank you, Magdalena for showing me the right way to temper my chocolate!'
