What you'll learn in this chocolate class:

This is our advanced level chocolate making class for budding home chocolate makers and folks who want to get down to the real nibby gritty and cover everything in the process, some cracking, winnowing, grinding, and more; we cover everything except for hand tempering. You'll work as a team with other class participants to make chocolate from scratch as you would at home, with DIY and tabletop equipment; like an intense cooking class, but with chocolate; be prepared to get a little messy. You will go home with untempered portions of your very own dark chocolate.

Please Note: We are a working factory, so for safety reasons we'll provide hairnets for all and require that you wear long pants and closed-toed shoes.

Small-Batch Chocolate Making Intensive
Reviewed by Jamie L. on 12/1/2019
The class was small and intimate, allowing for a real sense of being able to get hands-on experience in our first experience making chocolate. Our guide was knowledgeable and comfortable, making the lesson feel conversational rather than instructional. I really feel I learned enough to try and make chocolate myself at home, but with the self-awareness that as a novice mine will not taste as wonderful as Raaka’s chocolate! I also really enjoyed the whole team: everyone was nice and engaging while they were busy. Raaka is truly some of the most delicious chocolate I have ever had (try the limited edition sage flavor!) and it was great to learn from them on this quick trip to NYC.
