Honest Chocolate is a small (with just two chocolate-makers) artisanal chocolate company based in Cape Town. All the chocolate is hand-crafted in small batches using traditional, old school chocolate making methods, including hand tempering the chocolate on a granite slab tabletop and hand dipping each chocolate bonbon. The bonbons are then boxed up and the slabs individually wrapped using eco-friendly paper.
Honest Chocolate hosts workshops and tastings all year around, either at the Cafe or at the Woodstock Exchange kitchen.
A tasting of the range of Honest Chocolate products (bars, bonbons, spread) and key chocolate ingredients, with an introduction to how cacao beans are farmed, processed and how chocolate is made with a specific focus on the Honest Chocolate production process.
The session is approximately 30 minutes and requires a minimum of 8 people.
A full tasting and introduction to how cacao beans are farmed and processed, as well as a demonstration of how chocolate is made. Guests are then taught to dip, decorate and wrap their own set of four bonbons to take home. The workshop includes tea/coffee.
The session is approximately 1.5 hours and requires a minimum of 8 people.
