Welcome to Handmade Chocolate Heaven
If you love eating chocolate, then the chances are you will love making it too. That’s why you just have to visit our workshop and indulge in one of these fun filled chocolate making sessions. The chocolate courses are dedicated to having fun, designing (and obviously tasting!) mouth watering chocolates and learning the secrets of the chocolatier. You will be taught techniques to help you make chocolates in your own home, so why not spoil yourself, or buy a gift voucher for a friend.
The 2/3 hour tuition period begins with an insight into the origins of chocolate and then the pleasurable task of sampling chocolate from different sources. You will then be introduced to the art of hand tempering—the process that ensures the perfect chocolate.
We will then lead you on to crafting one of our seasonal solid chocolate bars. Following a brief discussion on the subject of chocolate fillings and toppings, you will create your own selection of luxury chocolates. All the chocolates that are made by you will be wrapped and boxed for you to take home.
These ‘in depth’ tuition courses are conducted in our workshop and are available at a fully inclusive cost of €50 per person. They are not general classes. Each tuition period must be booked and is for a minimum of 2 persons and a maximum of six.
We do hold classes in a local restaurant for between 15 and 30 persons. This is also by appointment and the cost will include a lunch at the restaurant. Price on application and will depend on numbers. These restaurant courses are not available week-ends or bank holidays.
We can also hold group courses at your own premises. Social Clubs, Associations or large family groups for example. We will come to you as long as the group is 20 or more persons. Prices on application.
Finally, we provide entertaining and informative chocolate making demonstrations in Cyprus. These are strictly by appointment and are generally held at your choice of venue. More details and prices on application.
Course dates and times are dependent on demand but are available seven days a week most weeks of the year.
