You will learn how to work with chocolate and design an amazing truffle! Keep in mind, we work only with dark chocolate:) Using different techniques we will make 3 different types of truffles incorporating various liquors and wines, such as Rum, Port, Kahlua and others (your choice:)). You will create a unique truffle that resonates with your personality. In the beginning of the class you will have a "chocolate shot" of the liquor of your choice, then as a group you will choose what to use in your truffles. During the class we will enjoy the truffles we've made together with champagne and have a Q&A session:) I will teach you how to apply your new skills to other areas of baking. You will take all your creations home. I've hosted many team building events for various SF companies, such as Google, Facebook, AirBnB and others. I've also hosted bridal showers, families get together, birthday celebrations! I can come to your location to teach the class . *PLEASE NOTE: SOME WEEKEND CLASSES INCLUDE PORT TASTING The class is extended to 2:30-3 hours ($97), includes a short introduction to the rich and fascinating history of California Wine industry. We will be tasting a variety of CA dessert wines(ports) and Portuguese Porto accompanied by a selection of cheeses, nuts, crackers, and of course, truffles!! You will choose the port to be used in our chocolate truffles.
I am a scientific researcher with the passion for chocolate and love for wine! I grew up in a European Wine Country (Moldova) and my childhood influenced my truffle design. I approach truffle making as an artistic and scientific interplay. My truffles were sold in wineries and fundraisers. They make the best gift for Easter, Mother's day, Valentine's, and of course, birthday! I've taught truffle making classes for several years and I love personal interaction and meeting new people. I will teach you how to choose the right flavor profile using alcohol or spices, how to enhance the truffle from inside and outside as well as how to choose the right mold. I've been making truffles for over 15 years! My goal is to make you comfortable to start making your own truffles right away without any special equipment.
Truffles to sample. For the extended class with Port tasting, in addition to truffles, I will provide cheeses, bread/cracker…
Mimosas (must be 21)
I will provide all the necessary supplies, tools, apron. You will get a gift bag with a pastry and a recipe.
We will be working in my house in San Francisco. It will be a small group so everyone can have a hands on experience. PLEASE respect other people in the group and be on time. We will wait no more than 15 min and then we will start. Thank you for understanding!
