To have perfectly tempered chocolate is probably one of the trickiest parts of chocolate making.

What to bring with you:
Please bring your own lunch if you wish to have a savoury snack. This is a very busy session, so we don't normally have the time to stop for a proper lunch, but there will be plenty of opportunity to have snacks throught the day. (We provide tea & coffee and homebaked cakes or biscuits)
'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!
