Photo Post: Chocolatiers in the Making

One of our classes most lively excursions was to the chocolate museum, where we also got to make our own chocolate. The museum started with exhibits about the cocoa itself and its agricultural history. We then learned about its history as a culinary art, from the chemistry involved in cooking the chocolate to the artistry that is involved in the process. After visiting the museum, we made dark chocolate with hazelnut filling. As it turns out there is a bit of a learning curve to chocolate making; you have to be very precise with temperature and timing. Considering it was our first time, the chocolates we made turned out well.
