We were very pleased to be hosting a Sea Salted Caramel Chocolate Workshop for Botanica Medica. At Botanica Medica Jo and her team are professional herbalists and they specialise in providing easily accessible professional Herbal Medicine to the public. Jo’s team of highly qualified medical herbalists offer free expert over-the-counter advice, private consultations, and very high quality herbal medicines which are prescribed to suit each patient’s individual needs.
Jo wanted to say a huge “Thank You” to her fabulous team and she decided to do it in the form of a Chocolate Workshop. Jo contacted me and I was delighted to be able to accommodate her request for the workshop to be held on a Monday at the end of January.
The ladies arrived and we split them into 3 teams. After a brief introduction and explanation of what they would be doing, each team armed with their recipe sheet rolled up their sleeves and began to create their Sea Salted Caramel.
Whilst the caramel cooled the ladies were introduced to the fabulously smooth melted chocolate. They expertly filled their moulds then enjoyed a well-deserved refreshments break. Much cake and handmade chocolates from our collection were enjoyed!
The ladies then enjoyed piping their caramel into their prepared moulds before closing the moulds and allowing them to set.
Time to clear the decks whilst the chocolates set and it was time to turn our attention to the packaging.
Then the moment everyone had been waiting for… turning out of the chocolates! I have to admit to loving this part of the workshop because it’s great to see how really pleased everyone is when they see their very own, very professional looking chocolates. The ladies were really pleased with how great their chocolates looked.
I would like to thank Jo for choosing a Sara Jane Chocolates Chocolate workshop and it was a pleasure to meet and talk to her really friendly team. You can find out more about Jo’s company at www.botanicamedica.co.uk
