Valentine's Day is fast approaching! This year take your relationship with chocolate (and your SO) to the next level with a special Taza Chooclate Truffle experience!
This class has three delicious parts.
First, you'll work as a team to create a pot of rich, decadant chocolate ganache to share. We'll provide fruit, bread, cheese and other snacks to dip and eat your homemade "fondue". You can replicate this recipe at home to make the chocolate ganache for truffles, ice cream topping, or just to impress your friends with a retro fondue party.
Then, using the same ganache recipe that was chilled overnight, we'll roll decadent dark chocolate truffles by hand and dip and roll them in five different toppings. Each attendee will make 12 truffles to take home.
Throughout the class, Taza will join forces with the experts at the Massachusetts Wine Shop to lead the group through a mini wine and chocolate tasting & pairing class of six different wines and six chocolate flavors. Taste all the most popular Taza chocolate flavors of all intensity levels paired expertly with local Massachusetts-grown wines.
Tickets: Each ticket comes with a dozen truffles. Tickets cost $60 per Trustees member and $75 per non-member (general ticket). Join The Trustees and save! Members save between 20-40% off all classes in The KITCHEN. Join the Trustees and show us your membership email and get the member rate. Join here.
Please note: We can provide a vegan truffle option, but all Taza chocolate contains traces of nuts, and so will this class. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like vegan truffles or if you have questons about allergies.
At Taza Chocolate we make stone ground, organic chocolate. Cacao is so complex in flavor that we want to let it shout loud and proud. That is why we do less to bring you more. We stone grind cacao beans into perfectly unrefined, minimally processed chocolate with bold flavor and texture, unlike anything you have ever tasted. Taza founder Alex Whitmore took his first bite of stone ground chocolate while traveling in Oaxaca, Mexico. He was so inspired by the rustic intensity that he decided to create a chocolate factory back home in Somerville, MA. Alex apprenticed under a molinero in Oaxaca to learn how to hand-carve granite mill stones to make a new kind of American chocolate that is simply crafted, but seriously good. To source the best cacao for Taza Chocolate, we cultivate direct relationships with growers and pay a premium over the Fair Trade price. We pioneered the first third-party certified Direct Trade cacao sourcing program in the U.S., to ensure transparency and fairness for all.
