Flower and Chocolates
A combined workshop with Nenette Chocolates and The Pink Peony
You are invited to spend half a day in the relaxed surroundings of Nenette’s chocolate studio in North Kilworth in the company of your local chocolatier, Nenette of Nenette Chocolates and florist, Gail of The Pink Peony at Manor Farm, Catthorpe.
As a one-off, we will be guiding you to both make your own delicious chocolate truffles and create a beautiful flower arrangement. There will be chocolates to taste along the way but please don’t eat the flowers.
Chocolates: The chocolate truffle workshop takes around an hour and is a mixture of ‘demo and doing.’ Nenette will show you how to make a chocolate ganache, including demonstrating how this process may go wrong and, more importantly, how to rescue it to produce a fabulous, glossy filling for your chocolates.
She will also show you how to temper chocolate and while doing so, will explain why the process is important. Using the ganache and tempered chocolate, you will create your own chocolate truffles under Nenette’s guidance. During this workshop, she will also demonstrate how to make chocolates using another, different process and of course these will be added to the goodies for you to take away with you – or simply to eat there and then!
Flowers: When you have completed your chocolates Gail will then run a mini-workshop. This will include a demonstration and a hands-on session where you will create a small arrangement which you can then take away with you.
