The art of creating chocolate
The history of chocolate dates back to 450 B.C. The Aztecs thought that chocolate was so valuable that the seeds were used as a form of currency. Ironically, however, chocolate was initially never a sweet product but rather a bitter beverage. It is unclear how chocolate became a product as we know it, however, we do know that it became a much loved indulgent for the Spanish Court during the 16th century.
On 25 January 2020, Sue Lewis Chocolatier will teach kids the basics of chocolate. This event is in collaboration with the City of Perth's Opera. They will learn about the different flavours, how to 'temper chocolate', as well as moulding and decorating chocolate. Each child will create their own 'forest bark', topped with their own flavours and have the opportunity to take a limited-edition 'Hansel and Gretel forest tree' chocolate home.
Kids will be provided with an apron to use on the day. It is recommended that kids wear dark clothes and sneakers. Parents can stay and watch or have coffee in a cafe upstairs.
Cost is $30.00 per child with a limit of 8 children per session. This workshop is aimed at children age 8 to 16. Notably, there are limited tickets for this event.
