the baking with chocolate class was really fun.
we talked, we ate, we asked & answered questions, we told stories, we giggled, we whisked and sifted and stirred and emulsified and nibbled and compared & contrasted, sniffed, learned, and even tasted 3 kinds of salt!
what we made & had:
a gratuitous chocolate bar tasting, 2 different hot cocoas, cream infused with cocoa nibs, bittersweet chocolate pot de creme: 1 plain & 1 infused with Szechuan peppercorns, 2 brownies: 1 with natural cocoa, 1 with Dutched cocoa, and devil's food cake.
thank goodness it wasn't a breakfast class.
