As the chocolate oozed down onto the plate, you couldn’t help but gaze longingly at the dessert.
Indulgent, rich, chocolatey goodness – that’s exactly what our Fabulous Chocolate Dessert class is.
Chef Damien’s passion (among many other things), is pastry and desserts, and when he saw that he was to take on this course he was ecstatic.
With an eager group of chocoholics in front him – as well as a massive slab of chocolate – he set off on the dessert trail, kicking things off with a sumptuous chocolate mousse, which needed to set in the fridge.
With the chocolate sitting in the fridge, he moved onto caramel croissant puddings, which came out of the oven with a gorgeous brown colour (and a definite whiff of bourbon!)
But what of that oozing dessert you were speaking of earlier, I hear you ask. Well the chocolate fondant certainly made an appearance and as Damien sliced up the centre, the chocolate in the centre slipped out with the cream falling into it in a fantastic mix of chocolatey joy.
Remember the chocolate mousse? Whipping it out of the fridge, Damien rustled up a beautiful chocolate glaze that he spread generously over the top of the cake, and armed with melted white chocolate, he added a stunning design upon its top.
But wait, there’s more! Moving onto another dessert, Chef Damien got to work on a gateau diane, a rather lush creation with meringue. The finished result?
To finish things off, Chef Damien got cracking on a white chocolate and raspberry cheesecake (much to our students’ delight!)
A chocolate feast? We think so. This really is the perfect course for chocolate lovers and dessert lovers too.
