Holiday Classes at the Chicago CHOCOLATE ACADEMY™ center
Barry Callebaut CHOCOLATE ACADEMY™ center helps area residents serve up some holiday cheer with two holiday culinary classes that are open to the public. One is the Parent-Child Gingerbread House Class which will give parents and their children the opportunity to learn how to make real gingerbread, assemble a gingerbread house and decorate it with chocolate. Children must be 8 years old or older.
For a truly festive holiday, participants in this class will learn how to make a Buche de Noel- a traditional French holiday cake that is filled with flavored cream, rolled up and decorated to look like a Yule log. Participants will also learn how to make "real" hot chocolate using a chocolate ganache base instead of cocoa powder.
The classes will be taught by CHOCOLATE ACADEMY™ center Chef Amanda Snouffer and participants will be able to take home their chocolate creations as well as a few recipes they can try on their own at home.
