The Gourmet Continental Chocolates is a one-week course with extensive emphasis on the techniques of making unique, delicious-tasting, gourmet-type confections. Students will learn about chocolate handling and tempering procedures. The students will participate in every aspect, from making the products to hand-dipping them in chocolate and, of course, to taking their finished products home. Terry Richardson, the lead instructor, will be ably assisted by Thalia Hohenthal of Guittard Chocolate Company, and Peter Dea.
This course is geared for those who, by hands-on participation, want to learn about chocolate handling, hand tempering, dipping techniques and how to make fine confections.
