Dive into the sweet world of homemade chocolate and learn how to make your own delectable treats at this fun chocolate making class in London!

This all-day workshop starts with a guided chocolate tasting of the UK's sweetest brands like Original Beans, Amadei, Valrhona and lesser-known hidden gems. As you sample your way to understanding what makes the best chocolate, you'll also get a brilliant chance to indulge all your Willy Wonka fantasies!

You'll then learn the techniques necessary to make your own truffles and different-shaped chocolates. Midway through the session, your teacher will provide a delicious lunch to enjoy before you roll up your sleeves and get back to the chocolate making!

Guided by your friendly chocolatier, you'll spend the afternoon reinforcing your already impressive new skills by moulding your own Easter eggs using sustainably sourced ingredients.

At the end of this London class, you'll have an assortment of tasty goodies to take home and an understanding of the complete chocolate making process — so you can create more whenever you're craving something sweet!

In 2003 Rosalind Rathouse decided to set up her own cookery school. What makes her qualified to run a cookery school? The answer is twofold: 50 years of teaching experience plus a passion for food and cooking. This passion led to her founding Piemaker in the 80s -- a maker and supplier of wholesale pies and cakes to the likes of Harrods, Waitrose and the Orient Express.

With the decline in people passing down home cooking through the generations, in 2003 Rosalind decided to combine her enthusiasm for teaching and her love of food to open Cookery School at Little Portland Street. The lasting principles of classic, simple home cooking are embedded in the school’s ethos even today. Rosalind feels very strongly that proper teaching can enthuse even the most unconfident cook. By 2008, the school was thriving, with fully booked classes, courses and corporate events gaining in popularity, so Rosalind took on a second, much larger, kitchen in the same building.

Even before the inception of the cookery school, Rosalind has been fervently passionate about sustainability. Cookery School has the highest possible rating for sustainability from the Sustainable Restaurant Association (SRA) and has been virtually plastic-free since the beginning. Sustainability is not just a buzzword but runs through the veins of the school, from sourcing top quality, seasonal, mostly organic ingredients, to running the kitchens on renewable energy, the school does everything possible to minimise its impact on the planet.
