What you'll do

You will learn how to work with chocolate and design an amazing truffle!
Keep in mind, we work only with dark chocolate:)
Using different techniques we will make 3 different types of truffles incorporating various liquors and wines, such as Rum, Port, Kahlua and others (your choice:)).
There are two types of classes, with and without port tasting.
The extended classes will start with Port tasting, cheeses and snacks.
We will talk about California wine history as well.
The shorter version, without the port tasting, will include the tasting of various liquors. As a group you will choose the one to make truffles with.
During the class we will enjoy the truffles we've made together with champagne.
You will take all your creations home.

I've hosted many team building events for various SF companies, such as Google, Facebook, AirBnB and others.
I've also hosted bridal showers, families get together, birthday celebrations!
I can come to your location to teach the class for an additional charge.

I've reduced the size of the experience to 2 people at $150/pp
If you have more people in your social bubble and can be closer than 6 feet, let me know and I will give you a discount based on the number of people in the class.

I am a scientific researcher with the passion for chocolate and love for wine! I grew up in a European Wine Country (Moldova) and my childhood influenced my truffle design. I approach truffle making as an artistic and scientific interplay.
My truffles were sold in wineries and fundraisers. They make the best gift for Easter, Mother's day, Valentine's, and of course, birthday!
I've taught truffle making classes for several years and I love personal interaction and meeting new people.
I will teach you how to choose the right flavor profile using alcohol or spices, how to enhance the truffle from inside and outside as well as how to choose the right mold.
I've been making truffles for over 15 years!
My goal is to make you comfortable to start making your own truffles right away without any special equipment.

I learned so much and even was able to reflect on mistakes I’ve made in the past from what I learned from Inna. Highly recommend this course and she’s so knowledgeable on Napa and Sonoma too. Well worth going to see her before you go up to wine country.

Such an incredible must-do experience! We learned a ton about California’s wine history and got to make truffles. Had a blast from start to finish - makes for a wonderful date or family/friend activity!

Inna's truffle-making experience was wonderful! We had a great time drinking wine, making truffles, and learning about the different types. A great date night!

*participated in additional port tasting, for reference: Educational and delicious. Inna has a lot of passion for what she does and it's readily perceivable in her presentation and offerings. She brings a scientific background to the making of truffles but keeps the workshop fun and accessible. Will certainly try making port ganache on my own. Recommend this to any foodie stopping by the Bay area!
