Maker's bio

We love chocolate! We run regular workshops on making luxury chocolates at home. Make them for yourself or as gifts for others; if you can bear to part with them! Jill and John are your tutors. They both hold industry recognised professional training qualifications. This means not only do they know their chocolate, but more importantly how to share it with others in a form that is easy to pick up and in a fun and enjoyable way. Go away with the confidence and knowledge to make your own at home.

Pete reviewed: Making hand-rolled luxury truffles - half day course

"A fantastic chocolate morning had with John & Jill today as a B/Day gift from my Aunt. The perfect hosts who welcomed me into their home / kitchen to present their Truffle making course. John made the coffee as Jill gave an excellent explanation of the Coco bean cycle to ending up as chocolate, plus tasting various types of course :) was very informative and some knowledge gained! The truffle making itself with various fillings was very good and a lot gained now with tempering techniques! As well as truffles, I was also shown how to make Honeycomb , Bark & Salted Caramel :) Course lasted 3hr and was worth every moment with John & Jill equally taking it in turns in showing you the stages. Best part of course was taking all the lovely goodies home after :) Thank you for a very informative & enjoyable time. I highly recommend John & Jill to anyone looking to learn the art of a chocolatier :)"

joanne reviewed: Making hand-rolled luxury truffles - half day course

"I was stuck for what to give my nephew for his 50th birthday as socks just didn't excite me. Then I spotted a chocolate making course. Perfect. I thought. Well, it looks like it was the perfect, unusual, interesting, educational and creative course I could have found. After a whole morning learning how to make everything from truffles to honeycomb he rang me to say what a fantastic morning he had had with Jill and John. He says he has learnt a lot, in a most enjoyable way. Now I am just waiting for one of his creations, which he was allowed to bring home after making them, to drop through my letter box! Highly recommend The Artisan Chocolate Company."

The Artisan Chocolate Company responded:

" Thank you Jo we're pleased to hear that Pete sung our praises when you spoke to him. It was great to meet him and add to his knowledge and skills. He was a great student and knew lots about chocolate making already, so we were able to add some more background information to round his knowledge more. We are pleased you were happy with your choice of course for him."

Stacy Lambert reviewed: Making handmade luxury chocolates - 1 day course

"I have now done 2 courses with John & Jill and loved both, but the chocolate course was simply amazing! For anyone who loves chocolate this is a definite must!! John and Jill are brilliant teachers, with a wealth of knowledge between them and have a clear passion for what they do and for me they were happy to adapt the course and share techniques in the areas I would use the skills most. I had a fantastic time on this course and will definitely be returning for another one. You also go home with enough chocolates to feed an army....and they are absolutely delicious!!"

The Artisan Chocolate Company responded:

" We are delighted to hear that you enjoyed your course with us Stacey. We strive to ensure you get what you need from the day and your feedback helps us to check and review what we do. We would love to see you again in the future."
