Chocolate panning are a complementary category in a chocolate maker's collection. This is part of the world of snacking which is very fashionable in recent years due to the evolution of our eating habits.

During this two-day training you will explore several panning techniques largely based on chocolate. Alexandre will show you how to polish a product in a natural way, the use of food lakes and how to use colours in an elegant way. We will make a variety of products such as hazelnuts, coffee beans, pralines, fruit pastes and many more. This new family will allow you to give your customers a wider choice of chocolate products.
