‘Tis the season to indulge the ones we love with chocolate. Gift something more personal by making it yourself this year! Learn from Jennifer, whose years of experience and depth of food science know-how will illuminate the wide world of chocolate: the varieties of chocolate, how it's produced, what the percentages mean, how to select and purchase, and how to use chocolate and cocoa powder in recipes. You'll work your way through these recipes, taste them together as a class, as well as walk away with your own homemade truffles.
