Blindfold Chocolate Tasting and Talk
Melt will teach you how to taste chocolate (sometimes while blindfolded) and talk about the discovery of chocolate. To really appreciate the fine flavour notes, its nuances and complexity, one should taste chocolate correctly, just as you would taste fine wine. Tasting chocolate with a blindfold allows you to savour it correctly and identify the different notes and even their sequencing. You will encourage the notes to reveal themselves by letting the chocolate melt in your mouth. Hence our name – Melt Chocolates. This course combines amazing chocolate tasting whilst also learning about the fascinating history of chocolate.
Melt world class chocolatiers will guide you through every step of making our famous Salted Square. We are offering customers the unique opportunity to learn the secrets behind its process. This is a unique experience in London and we will use time-honored traditional artisanal methods – such as hand-tempering, hand-dipping and enrobing. Use your creativity to decorate your own bespoke chocolates.
We will make delicious fresh chocolates in a beautiful boutique in the Heart of Notting Hill. As master chocolatiers, Melt will guide you through each of the intimate steps of our secret recipe.
Making Melt’s Famous Salted Crunchy Square
This is a hands-on experience – to make your own personal chocolates. Firstly you will make the filling by blending delicious hazelnut praline with milk and dark chocolates, salt and feuilletine for texture and crunch. Secondly you will leave the frame to crystallize and then while it is setting you will go through a informative chocolate tasting experience. You will have the opportunity to taste some of the best chocolates in the world. You will next cut the frame of salted squares by hand – and the chocolatier will then guide you through the tempering process. Fourthly you will hand dip your chocolates and top them with any of your unique and creative decorations. You will then package and present your own box of personal chocolates to take home and show your friends and family – for them to admire. We believe there is no experience like this in London – the chance to make your very own fresh chocolates and take home to share with your friends.
