Truffle Making Workshop + Wine Tasting with Ovedia Artisan Chocolates

March 21, 2020 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm


Chocolate and wine – the ultimate pairing! Satisfy all your wildest cravings and share a sweet moment with friends, family or a significant other making chocolate side-by-side.

This hands-on workshop has three delicious parts:

  • The Ovedia chocolatier will teach the attendees how to make dark chocolate ganache. While the ganache is still warm, participants will be encouraged to think of the ganache as fondue, and will be invited to dip bread and cheese to taste this incredible treat.
  • Attendees will then be given instruction on the process of making (and eating, of course) a French Rolled dark chocolate truffle. Attendees will be given chilled dark chocolate ganache to participate in the technique and then presented with four to five different options to roll each of the 12 truffles. A box will be provided to take your confections home.
  • Attendees will also enjoy a wine and chocolate pairing experience. Ovedia Artisan Chocolates’ chocolatier will offer four truffles handpicked from our truffles collection  that complements locally-made wines. Discussion will include explanations of truffles and wine combinations, truffle descriptions, wine notes and flavors experienced. Open discussion will be encouraged!

Decorations: We’ll provide 4-5 decorations in which to roll your truffles. Toppings may include, but are not limited to: ground chocolate, candy sprinkles, non-pareils, graham crackers, confectioners’ sugar and/or pretzels.

This class contains dairy and nuts; unfortunately there is no vegan or nut-allergy safe option for this class. Please email appletonfarms@thetrustees.org if you have allergy questions.
