Chocolate lovers are being served the perfect antidote to beating the end of summer blues with a series of workshops hosted by top chocolatiers Temper Temper in Southborough, Tunbridge Wells.
Throughout September and October the family-run business is laying on a range of unique courses for adults and children alike with truffle and bar making for families as well as a ‘chocktails’ evenings, which teaches the decadent art of blending chocolate with alcoholic cocktails.
Sessions started on 1st September with a two-hour family workshop for enthusiastic, budding chocolatiers of all ages (from age 4+), which included creating a range of sweet treats with chocolate tasting and refreshments. The next family workshops are taking place on 21st September and 26th October.
A three-hour truffle and bar workshop for older teens and adults on 28th September and 20th October will allow enthusiasts to create up to 30 truffles each and includes creating their own, unique ganache filling and topping. It also includes learning the art of creating and hand-decorating chocolate bars.
Alison Hazell of Temper Temper on Church Road, which has been running workshops for chocolate lovers in Tunbridge Wells and the surrounding area since opening its doors in 2007, said:
“We have a range of workshops for all ages of budding chocolatiers throughout September and October and while the summer might be over, it’s the perfect way of spending time with those you love or enjoying a bit of ‘me’ time while learning a new skill.
“Many people think chocolate is just chocolate but there’s lots to learn about the history and art of chocolate-making and I love seeing people’s faces, both kids and adults, when they see the finished products that they’ve made – and of course get to proudly take home their creations to share with others!”
In addition to the family workshops on 21st September and 26th October, there’ll be a two hour kids-only session available during half term on 22nd October and a full-day chocolate and baking on 24th October.
The popular adults only ‘choctails’ evenings are being held on 27th September.
