Chocolate Workshop In Cusco
The indoor activity takes place at our own unique private location, just minutes away from the Cusco main square "Plaza de Armas". The workshop fee includes everything from cooking gear to professional grade ingredients and complimentary hot chocolate with a recipe!
After a short introduction we will split in teams and start cooking! Each team will learn how to temper its chocolate before each person works individually on two types of Belgian sweets using amazing local, organic Peruvian Chocolate: pralines & mendiants.
We work step by step and each stage is illustrated by a live demonstration. Our team will share historical and technical facts that will help you get professional results regardless of your previous cooking experiences. We use fair trade, top quality, dark couverture chocolate who contains 54% cocoa and is of standard fluidity. The chocolate blend is rather sweet, not bitter to fit most people's pallet & diet.
The Chocolate workshop is naturally suitable for vegetarians (no eggs) & gluten free. We also provide dairy free or vegan versions of our class on request. This experiens is not adequate to children under the age of 12, older children must be accompanied of a least one paying adult. Please note that spectators are not admitted, whoever joins must take part -no exception.

Don't take our word for it here's some reviews:
"More fun than I expected!" - Sophie L.
Had an opportunity to go to Cusco for work and since I had the day to myself, I decided to sign up for this chocolate making class. In all, this class was everything I hoped for and more! The instructor was very nice, sharing stories about the history of Peruvian chocolate and how ganache got its name, and the class was so much fun! Since I was a solo traveler, I got put into a group of three with 2 other solo individuals, who were also extremely nice. The class was held in English or Spanish or French, so I was able to understand the instructions clearly and even got to participate in helping the instructor make the ganache! We made different types of chocolates and were able to add dried fruit, nuts, caramel, and/or honey. (We also had many opportunities to taste our chocolate along the way!) We were able to enjoy delicious hot chocolate as the treats set. After all chocolates were done, we got to put them in a pretty gold box. A wonderful experience for anyone who wanted to indulge themselves in the Peruvian chocolate experience!!!
"For chocolate lovers!" - Shyla
A must do when in Peru. Our host Abe was fantastic. He made the workshop fun and informative. We got to make our own chocolates which were so yummy. I couldn't stop eating the chocolate through out the workshop and we met new people from all over. If you love chocolate, you must do this workshop.
"Worth the money, a fantastic experience!" - Cornelia
This was a great experience, I'm very happy that we did this while visiting Cusco! The host explained each step very well and helped if someone needed it. The other participants were kind, and we got some new friends while making chocolate. It was great fun and the chocolates turned out really good, and we got a lot of chocolate to bring home with us. I really recommend you to try this!
