An update on workshops

Filed in Blog, Event Details, workshops by on 4th December 2015 0 Comments • views: 1698

Following on from lots of feedback we are now offering workshops for families. We are really excited to be running these as it is something we have been trying to set up for a while.

This workshop is a fun filled workshop for both adults and children and is aimed at families. Ideal for parents and children or grandparents and grandchildren to have a great experience making chocolate together. This lasts approx 1 ½ hours and allows the participants to learn a bit about chocolate making and then have a go at making a few items like lollies / bars themselves.

The workshops will be held at Claremont Kitchen so families can enjoy breakfast or lunch at the Farm Shop Cafe before or after the workshop.

We are also still running the dabble and creative chocolate making workshops as follows:

Dabble Workshop

This two hour chocolate making workshop begins with a talk about how chocolate makes it from the bean to the bar, followed by a practical session where we demonstrate various techniques before giving you the chance to create your own masterpieces. Following a chocolate quiz, everybody gets the chance to hand-wrap their creations to take home. The price includes a hot chocolate drink.

Creative Workshop

The three hour chocolate workshop begins with information on the history of chocolate and then the pleasurable task of a guided chocolate tasting. You will then create truffle fillings, dip your truffles in Belgian chocolate and design and decorate your toppings. All attendees then take home their creations of fine genuine Belgian chocolates all wrapped, designed and made by you. The price includes a hot chocolate drink.

Our workshops are popular for corporate events, birthday parties, hen /stag parties and special individual treats.

We can run corporate team building workshops as well as workshops for school groups. Please contact us for further information.

Let’s talk about it!

Filed in Blog, Event Details by on 9th November 2015 0 Comments • views: 1918

Before I used to make Chocolate I wouldn’t dream of talking about Christmas until the beginning of December. Mince pies were a treat to look forward to and I would stock up on these on the 1st of December and eat my last mince pie on Boxing Day.

Now, we start getting asked in October when our Christmas Range will be released. What can I say?!

We attend events in November and really it is a sign of the times that people are so busy in December that they have to be organised earlier and earlier every year.

As the festive season comes upon us, we do hope that you will get a chance to relax and have some fun too! Our last lot of chocolate making workshops for 2015 are running on Sunday 15th November – come and be inspired to make your own gifts. Or chill out with one of Alright Petal’s fabulous Wreath Making workshops.

We kick start our Christmas with our annual mulled wine and mince pie evening – including our lovely friends: Alright Petal, The Beady Gecko, Carla Pownall Pottery and Kims Krafts. (11th November 7pm to 9pm)

We are then delighted to be part of the Fabulous Frost Fair at Claremont Farm on 20th to 22nd November. They have their amazing VIP Launch night on 20th November in the evening, a day of Demos on the Saturday and then a family day on the Sunday. Sounds lovely and in such a beautiful setting too!

Following on from that we will be at the Wallasey Village Christmas Night on 26th November.

… 4 days after that I’ll have my first mince pie 😉

 

Hope you have a great build up to the festive season,

We hope you’ve all had a lovely Easter and are enjoying all your delicious chocolates.

The spring feeling is here and we are all gearing up for the summer.

For us summer means a great range of delightful events. The hen party season kicks off and we host lots of hen party workshops in Liverpool! We’re also looking forward to the food festivals and summer fairs that we get involved in.

Delicious macarons and meringues make up part of our summer schedule too – we look forward to catching up with everyone somewhere along the line over the spring/summer.

Details of where we are can be found on our “events” page 🙂https://www.thechocolatecellar.co.uk/events/
