Our chocolate kitchen at Cocoa Central in Swanage is available for chocolate workshops in the holidays and also for hire by groups. We also run chocolate tasting evenings at Chococo Winchester.
We will post dates for forthcoming events and workshops on our website news page & on our Facebook page.
Holiday Workshops for individuals
We do run chocolate making workshops in holiday periods (especially the summer holidays), usually on weekday evenings, for adults to book into as individuals. Adult workshops run for 2 hours and include key chocolate making techniques such as making a fresh cream ganache to make truffles, top tips on how to temper chocolate at home and more. We will take teenagers (age 13-16) on these sessions if accompanied by an adult.
Dates & prices for these sessions will be posted on the news section of our website and on our Facebook page when available.
Chocolate Masterclass Parties for Groups
We also offer bespoke chocolate masterclass parties in our chocolate kitchen at Cocoa Central, suitable for groups of at least 8 adults (or a family group with offspring age 13+), during weekdays or Saturday afternoons.
Perfect for a celebration with a difference, hen party, corporate team-building session or just for fun, these 2-3 hour sessions give you a chance to discover chocolate Chococo-style with either Claire or Andy Burnet, founders of Chococo, or another member of the team.
In our 2 hour sessions, find out more about the world of fine chocolate, learn some chocolate making techniques & top tips that you can apply at home & above all, have some fun getting involved making fresh cream truffles, mendiants (disks covered with your choice of treats) & other recipes from the Chococo chocolate cookbook written by co-founder Claire.
In our 3 hour sessions, enjoy a unique global chocolate-tasting session, tasting chocolate made from fine cocoa beans grown in different countries around the world, including Grenada, Venezuela, Madagascar and Tanzania, as well as your chocolate-making experience.
If you are interested in booking a group session, please contact us for prices, availability & what you would like out of the event, so that we can tailor it to best meet your needs.
