Barry Callebaut Offers 'Chocolate Gifts for Mom'
To let Mom know she's truly appreciated this Mother's Day, which is May 10, Barry Callebaut-the world's leading manufacturer of high-quality cocoa and chocolate products-will host a special "Chocolate Gifts for Mom" class at its CHOCOLATE ACADEMY™ center in Chicago. During the class, which is open to the public, Chef Richard Cusick will demonstrate how to make artisanal chocolates like the ones found in exclusive, boutique chocolate shops.
Specifically, class participants will learn how to create candy shells using plastic molds, how to temper chocolate using a simplified microwave method, how to make flavored ganaches and assemble the finished chocolate candies. Each participant will be given a box of chocolates and recipes to try at home.
