What we'll do

Chocolate mousses are as easy to make as they are versatile—but there are techniques that can elevate yours to a new level. Once you have a few good techniques under your belt, you'll be set to create a wide variety of delicious desserts. Find out how easy and sophisticated a chocolate mousse can be, from fillings for cakes and pastries or as delicious desserts all on their own. In this hands-on course participants will learn to make three different chocolate mousse-based desserts including a "coffee cup" milk chocolate mocha mousse, a white chocolate and strawberry cream verrine (a popular and sophisticated dessert style in Europe), and individual dark chocolate mousse cakes. While working side-by-side in the kitchen with Zach, participants will learn the basics as well as special tips on working with chocolate and how good chocolate decisions impact the quality of the desserts they are making. Each participant is provided a printed copy of all recipes used in the lesson and samples of the desserts to take home. *Must by 16 years or older to attend.
