Što ćete raditi

Turning a cocoa bean into a beautiful chocolate bar is a wonderful, wonderful process. I will tell its story - one of the great stories in the world. I will guide you through this magical transformation, every step of the way. You will sort the cocoa beans and then roast them. We will then crack and winnow them. With a pestle and mortar we will grind them until they are fine. You will taste the chocolate at each stage to see how the flavours of the chocolate changes and develops over time. This journey releases different flavours notes which can be very dramatic.
The next stage is really beautiful - think of a diamond - one of the hardest substances known to man - but transparent. Light shines through it. This is because the carbon structures are completely aligned - it is the same with chocolate, tempering aligns the crystal structures to a similar pattern and uniformity. Once tempered - you will pipe or mould the chocolate into your very own beautiful bar. You will then take your own unique Chocolate bar home with Melt's beautiful packaging and a designer bag. An authentic experience from the Heart of Notting Hill. I will interweave the story of chocolate - so you see how the Aztecs created such beautiful cocoa. We love story telling and we think the story of chocolate is one of the world's greatest stories.
Other things to note
No prior knowledge is required - just a thirst for knowledge, curiosity and enthusiasm.

Wir haben viel über Schokolade gelernt und es hat großen Spaß gemacht, sie selbst herzustellen. Der kleine Laden in Notting Hill ist darüber hinaus sehr schön in einer tollen Gegend gelegen.

I had read really good reviews about a passionate and knowledgeable chocolatier but instead we ended up with a young girl who doesn't even like dark chocolate! She was very sweet natured, friendly and knew the basics but she wasn't very passionate about the subject (as she didn't like dark chocolate or anything above 35%) and unfortunately wasn't the expert chocolate maker that we were expecting (Kate?). It was nice to taste all the different types of chocolate and she did explain very well where each of the samples were from. We tried some very good chocolate such as the 'Wild' and Hazelnut butter. The chocolate making seemed a bit basic and it would have been nice to be more hands on with the mixing and practicalities. We were made to put the topping in before hand and then squeeze the chocolate in, but that resulted in a very amateur-looking, top-heavy piece of chocolate where you couldn't see the 'Melt' logo once it came out for all the rainbow sprinkles. I do think if we had someone more expert leading the session, they would have perhaps encouraged us to put a small layer of chocolate in and then the extra ingredients to mix it in a bit better, as well as encourage us to not fill the whole mould up. It would have been nice to have chilli as an option too!

This was a cool experience, the host was very knowledgeable about chocolate and it was interesting to hear about the background of the chocolate industry. We tried LOTS of different types of chocolate and it was fun being hands on with the chocolate production process. In the end we got to use moulds and different fillings to make our own chocolate bars. Only issue was the space is a bit cramped and we were standing for the entirety of the experience

What a fantastic experience. I enjoyed learning about chocolate and process of making great chocolate. This is ideal for those who love chocolate, for me it was too rich for my palate. Space was very tight. Other than that, host was very friendly and accomodating.

It was so much fun and we enjoyed it a lot!! It is highly recommended to have such unique experience in London. We were educated to know how luxurious chocolate is.

This is a wonderful experience that helped to get me out of the flat while I stayed in London for 6 weeks for work and I'm glad that I take the plunge and signed up. You get to learn and taste all sorts of forms of chocolate (and even have some tea from the husks). She had tools and everyone was able to participate in the making processes. They showed videos to compliment the experience, while also sharing why chocolate tastes different depending on where its grown (like on the grounds of a volcano verses mountains - yes you can taste the smokiness from the volcano - really!). You get to taste each of these to see how dark chocolate all the way to milk chocolate (just like wine tasting) changes. I enjoyed my evening out. You husk the pods, grind the cocco, make, form, and wrap your finished bars. Sign up folks, if nothing else you get take home 3 of your own chocolate bars during your time there.
