Class size:

In this intermediate class, you will spend three days focused on making complex, multi-layered confections with delicious fillings and textures. To accomplish this, you will study all of the ingredients that are used in chocolate confections and learn their roles in emulsion, flavor, and texture pairing. Chef Nicoll will also share insight knowledge to high-tech chocolate equipment, such as enrobing and tempering machines and Stephan mixers.

Molded and enrobed bonbons will be the focus, but Chef Nicoll will also share his experience of using the techniques taught in this class in plated dessert applications.
