Class: Pre crystallization or Tempering 101 Class

Welcome to the origin of all perfect chocolate creations!

Good chocolate is the result of good tempering. To say that pre-crystallization (the term we prefer for tempering) is essential to chocolate is an understatement. After all, it is to this step that we owe the chocolate's shine, snap, and richness.

What's more, pre-crystallization is required for fat-based fillings (giandujas and pralinés) and other preparations such as spreads, making it a truly essential skill.

In this on-demand class, we want to give you a solid foundation to help you master the backbone technique of chocolate making. From learning how to do table-top pre-crystallization, to using creamy cocoa butter, to finding your way around a tempering machine, we go over all the key techniques for making flawless chocolate.

Of course, all of this is paired with a detailed explanation of the theory behind pre-crystallization and the polymorphic nature of cocoa butter.

Whether you're looking to start your chocolate journey off on the right foot - or you're a seasoned chocolatier looking to perfect the most basic but essential skill in our craft - this course will be a valuable contribution to your creative process.
