DIY Holidays: Handmade Chocolates
with Alexandra Whisnant
Sunday, December 1, 3:00-6:00PM
$55 for 18 Reasons Members, $65 for the general public

If you've never crafted your own food gifts before, now is the time to start.

Look to Alexandra Whisnant, a professional chocolatier who recently moved her business "gâté comme des filles" from Paris to the Bay Area.  She will deftly demystify the process and surprise you with her seasonal flavors inspired by local ingredients.  

This class will give you the knowledge and practice you need to design and create your own line of beautiful chocolates in your home, just in time for the holidays.  Learn to:

Make delicious chocolate ganaches to our own taste (without recipes)

Temper chocolate by hand (with no thermometer) to give our chocolates that professional sheen and snap

Dip and decorate chocolates by hand to create a beautiful handmade look that a machine can't mimic

Really, we all know that our friends and family are likely appalled by our taste in socks, books, and trinkets from our travels.  So let us do right by them.  And have fun while doing it!  Give food, and you can't go wrong.
