I am excited to be running a round of 5 “All Things Chocolate” workshops limited to 14 people each.
Everyone loves to indulge in something sweet and chocolately every now and again – and why not? We eat for pleasure just as much as for nourishment and sustenance. But the key to sweet treat consumption is maximising quality and limiting quantity! What I have observed and personally experienced over the past 20 years is that if we dial up quality to the max, the quantity consumed naturally decreases. A little goes a long way when you eat the real deal as your body gets its fix and fill super fast.
Finding high quality treats without any artificial ingredients and empty fillers can be tricky business which is why I started my own range for my children 10 years ago. It’s comforting to be able to offer my loved ones every now and again something naturally sweet made with only nutrient-dense ingredients without feeling overridden with guilt that I’m messing up their health. I want this for every household! Which is why I want to share some of my chocolate recipes and culinary tips with you in this intensive workshop, so that you too can make chocolate treats and desserts for yourself, your family and friends that not only taste delicious, are quick and super simple to make, but are also good for you!
IN THIS WORKSHOP I WILL BE SHOWCASING HOW TO MAKE:
+ Mexican chilli hot chocolate
+ Chocolate block/slab of various flavours including carob
+ Chocolate hazelnut spread (the real “nutella”)
+ Chocolate ice-cream
+ Hot chocolate pudding
+ Chocolate pannacotta
+ Chocolate hazelnut slice
+ Raw chocolate mousse
The above just about covers the entire range of my favourite ways to consume chocolate!! Chocolate cake will be covered in my gluten-free cakes and muffins workshop coming up soon! Chocolate smoothies will be covered in my bone broth workshop (yes really!) and breakfast workshops.
We will be using unprocessed fermented raw cacao powder. We will not be using any refined sweeteners – only natural unprocessed sweeteners or whole fruit. All recipes are grain-free but 3 contain dairy.
COST IS $140 PER PERSON AND INCLUDES:
1. Detailed workshop booklet (30 pages) including theory, step by step guides & recipes
2. Nutritional theory discussion on raw cacao powder, raw cacao butter, carob, chocolate and sweeteners
3. Practical demonstrations
4. Hands-on experience
5. Food tasting
6. Opportunity to ask questions
THIS WORKSHOP IS IDEAL FOR:

+ Chocolate lovers who want to learn how to make their own nutrient-dense healthy chocolate sweets and desserts using only unprocessed nutritious ingredients
+ Those who want to transition off processed chocolate and want a healthy substitute for themselves or their family members
