Chocolatier Ruth Kennison will demonstrate the magic of working with the finest craft chocolate. Think of it like a visit to a chocolate factory. You’ll see how to turn luscious melted chocolate into delicious candy bars. Then it’s on to the toppings bar, where you’ll customize your individual chocolate creations with sprinkles, pretzels, nuts, raisins, coconut and more. While the bars are setting, Ruth will lead you through a guided chocolate tasting with delicious and unusual chocolates, and you’ll learn some amazing chocolate facts and trivia! Each student will bring home several custom chocolate bars of their own creation.
Age group: Adults and teens (if accompanied by adult)
About the Artist:
If you truly love chocolate, here’s your match: Ruth Kennison is L.A.’s “bean-to-bar chocolate queen” and number-one chocolate educator according to KCRW’s Good Food, The New York Times and others. Her sold-out classes cover every aspect of the chocolate-making process, from sourcing cacao to sprinkling pixie dust on delectable bonbons. Ruth is resident chocolate diva and chocolate instructor at The Gourmandise School, and founder of the The Santa Monica Chocolate Society (yes, a real thing). She trained at The French Pastry School in Chicago and the Callebaut Chocolate Academy, and travels the world, tasting, speaking and learning about the best chocolate. She is a popular international speaker about all aspects of chocolate and a frequent judge for chocolate awards. She created The Chocolate Project to share her love of chocolate and to help people find their “chocolate palate” and become better chocolate consumers.
