I was trained in chocolate by the head pastry chef at the Ritz hotel in Paris and London and he taught me everything. I started creating my own chocolate making workshops in 2006 and have taught over 100,000 people how to make belgian chocolate truffles and many other classes. I have worked all over the world running classes, corporate teambuilding and worked on many cruise ships running classes for passengers. I even took a group of 30 passengers to a chocolate plantation and appeared on tv many times.

Good fun with Jerry and he knows his stuff on chocolate making and advising on quality manufacturers of chocolate. He’s patient and provides you with nice packaging to take your chocolates home.

More tips

This is a great fun experience to do, you will taste great chocolate and learn the art of making chocolate truffles which I guarantee are deeeeelicious.
You can also add another class which is chocolate portrait painting, which is again great fun and you will take away your framed artwork.
