What Can I Expect

Sophisticated Smart School chocolate classes! Available at the Essex, London and Buckinghamshire Smart Schools of cookery, you'll spend a couple of hours learning all about cooking with chocolate.

This workshop is called the Chocolate Delight. And quite rightly too. It's deliciously indulgent. So much more than your traditional chocolate making workshop, with these pro classes you will be discovering how fondants, souffles, truffles and chocolate cheesecakes are made.

The programme for these classes has been honed over the years by Masterchef Ann Hood, the head of Smart School. With her team of professional chef tutors, they have come up with this eclectic mix of chocolate-based recipes.

The idea is that small groups of you will be invited up to join Chef and assist with the preparation and chocolate making for each of the recipes. It's entirely voluntary, so there's no pressure. Ann has found that this mix of hands-on and observation strikes the right balance for you to have fun and learn lots too.

Ann and her team make sure that only the finest ingredients are used for these workshops. The high quality of the chocolate ensures your truffles and fondants are simply delightful. And as for the funky, deconstructed chocolate and lime cheesecake? It's sublime!

We love the fact that Ann's Smart School chocolate making experiences are available at three different venues in the south east. With this voucher, you can choose Chelmsford, Beaconsfield or Canary wharf for your two hours of chocolate heaven on a plate! Buy your voucher now.
