The Cookery School hosts Valhrona classes
This is a short, intra-holiday note to ensure your larding is fully topped-up.
I always have a nightmare cooking with chocolate, so was intrigued to hear that the choc-snobs favourite Valhrona are holding classes with the Cookery School at Little Portland Street based around their reputedly very good book Cooking with Chocolate. The class is being taught by Valhrona's UK executive chef Andrew Gravette.
The one class currently open to bookings is on 15 March. Places are limited to 14 people, but at the time of writing there is still availability.
I guess I should have written about this before Chanukah/Christmas, but I didn't. Surely you haven't had enough of giving gifts or eating very rich food and so the prospect of freebasing chocolate is still appealing.
I've no idea about Mr Gravette's credentials, but I went to a sourdough course with Dan Lepard at Little Portland Street a couple of years ago that was excellent. I'm confident this will be as well.
