Day 1 - Introduction to Tempering and Fillings

An introduction to tempering and filling products - learn the art of hand tempering chocolate on a marble slab, discover the science of tempering and why perfect crystallisation is vital for success.  We will cover microwave tempering, using a melting tank and the seeding method.

After lunch we will discover the range of pre-made fillings available on the market, taste them and discuss their correct use. Along with ideas for use and correct storage, shelf life and stability. The use of praline, pastes, correct use of fondant, crème a la carte, Tintoretto, cara crakine, caramel fill, café crakine etc..
