Class Description

Learn how to make your own Easter egg and take what you make. 

 

Have you ever wondered how Easter eggs are made by artisan chocolatiers? Well wonder no more.  Come along for a fun morning and learn the tricks of the trade whilst creating your very own praline filled Easter egg. This course is led by local chocolatier and tutor Amy Levin.

 

What you’ll learn…

 

How Chocolate Shells Are Made 

 

Chocolate shelling is used throughout professional chocolate making to make thin (or thick) chocolate shells to fill with all sorts of things. In this case, the shell will be layered with a praline. In other cases, they could be filled with candy, truffles, mini eggs and so on. Alternatively, they can be left hollow, as they were originally. You will be shown how egg shells are made in an artisan chocolatiers kitchen vs a commercial chocolate factory.

 

Praline Filling 

 

This is an easy and fun filling for the eggs – something a little different from your run of the mill Easter egg. You will be taught how to create a thin layer of praline inside if the shell and then cover it in chocolate to create that “how did they do that” vibe. It’s also absolutely delicious! This praline can also be rolled into balls and eaten as it is or dipped in chocolate.

 

Finishing Touches

 

After the egg shells are filled, you will be shown how to fuse the two halves together like pros and then finish it off so it looks as good as it tastes. You will then roll the eggs in a caramel chocolate and finish them off with a fun chocolate Easter stamp.

 

Learn A New Craft 

 

Unlike some crafts, chocolate making can be done at home using a few easy to find tools and some good quality chocolate. In fact, as you’ll see in this class, you can even make your own artisan chocolate at home. Whether that interests you or not, you can still take your new found skills and embark on a creative journey that’s also very tasty!

 

Take What You Make 

 

You’ll take home your very own egg, packed in a clear bag, tied with a ribbon.

 

All chocolates are dairy, wheat, gluten and refined sugar free.

FAQs

What is a Cook Together ticket?

Cook Together tickets allow an adult and a child between 10 – 18 years to book onto a course for a cheaper price. You will work together at the same workstation and produce enough food for you both to eat. This is part of our drive to encourage young people to enjoy cooking from scratch.

Can I book for a large group?

We have eight workstations and accommodate larger groups by working in pairs or small groups around each station. People often report they enjoy working in this way as it makes the event sociable and allows people to take a short break from the cooking as there are others to take over.

Who can attend these classes?

Most of our scheduled courses are for adults only. However, where you see a ‘Cook Together’ ticket offered then you can book for a place for a child over the age of 10 years with an adult.

It is also possible to book a bespoke course for children with an adult from the party remaining in charge of the group. Please make enquiries to cookeryschool@honestygroup.co.uk

Do I need to be a confident cook?

We welcome people of all cooking experience and abilities. Our tutors will assess and adjust to your needs.

What if I have a food allergy or special dietary need?

Some of our courses can accommodate allergies and special dietary requirements however for others the replacement of one ingredient for another will not work. As there is such a range in what people require we request that you ask at the time of booking by emailing cookeryschool@honestygroup.co.uk

What should I wear/bring with me?

All ingredients and equipment are provided, including aprons. For a cookery course we advise wearing layers as the cookery school can heat up once the ovens and hobs are on. Closed shoes are also requested for health and safety purposes and a band to tie back longer hair.

If you are attending a course that could be messy please adjust your clothing to take account of this.

We hope to make our courses as sustainable as possible and so request that customers bring containers to take home any food left over at the end of a course.
