By popular demand, Sugar Love Chocolates has added several kinds of classes to our offerings. From intensive chocolate classes to easy beginner courses taught through Truckee Meadows Community College.
We've partnered with TMCC to offer an introduction course to basic truffle making. This class is held at least three times a year (twice during the fall semester and once during the spring). Check out the latest course catalog from the Workforce Development and Continuing Education department of Truckee Meadows Community College for more information as to cost and time of our next class. You'll leave having learned the basic traditional French hand-rolled truffle and roughly two pounds of confections to take home!
This course covers an introduction to tempering chocolate and making molded chocolates. We will cover tempering dark chocolate (with notes about both milk and white chocolates as well) using simple tools and materials that you can find in your home kitchen. You will leave with some creations you made yourself as well as a deeper understanding of designing high quality chocolates. We offer this course roughly four times a year and you can details on our Eventbrite page. Classes are limited to eight students.
This course takes place over an entire month, meeting once a week. The first day is an intensive day long course covering some of the basics of high-end chocolate as well as the history, economics and wonderful chemistry of chocolate. The following three weeks are three-hour sessions and will show you how to work with dark, milk and white chocolates. We will discuss working from fresh ingredients, using molds and using colored cocoa butters. This course is offered once or twice a year and details can be found on our Eventbrite page as to the next course and the cost. These classes require at least two students and max out at six students.
