Full-Day Chocolate Workshop: Death By Chocolate with Chef Richard McPeake
A comprehensive class taught by a veteran chef, restaurateur and culinary instructor, Chef Richard McPeake.
The 5-hour class will begin with full instruction on the various types and styles of chocolate. Then we’ll put on an apron and 'rock and roll' through tempering, cooking styles, melting, leavening, soufflés, equipment, temperature, storage, when to use which type of chocolate, oil levels… you name it!
You’ll get into chocolate up to your elbows as you make Chef Richard’s Award-Winning Chocolate Nut Gateau. (1st place – 3 years in a row at the Missouri Restaurant Show!) Also, his famous Chocolate Truffle Cake, a 'fail proof' recipe (yes, you heard us!), Chocolate Soufflé, Ganache and a homemade Hot Fudge Sauce (Fedora’s original recipe!) to die for!
In addition, you’ll learn the fundamentals of dipping with chocolate when you create Grand Marnier-Injected Chocolate Dipped Strawberries!
Each student will take home all the recipes, some handmade Hot Fudge Sauce and a belly-full of chocolate tastings. Sweet!
