Lovely lunch and plenty of tea etc during the day and an afternoon tea at the end.

Had a great day learning the art of tempering and moulding chocolate. I came home with an assortment of professional looking bars, chocolate lollies and mice, truffles and even a chocolate bowl and lid. All materials and tools were provided as well as refreshments, a delicious lunch and even a glass of bubbly. The studio facilities are excellent and Yolanda is very knowledgable about the subject. I would thoroughly recommend this course.

Just had the most fabulous Sunday - tempering chocolate and making bars, truffles, lollies etc.
Yolanda was brilliant with us and I left knowing I really could do this at home as most equipment I have in my kitchen (except for the thermometers, but thanks to Jonathan’s research I now know where to get hold of one).
A lovely couple who run a well planned day with generous hospitality thrown in. Thanks again guys for a great time.

Had a wonderful day making lots of Easter eggs, lollies etc. It was a fun course and we made so many things. It really is great value for money. Yolanda is a very good tutor and the studio is great. The lunch provided was excellent. I would happily recommend the Teachme Courses.
