Cindy Walker is more than a chocolatier (although she is an amazing one). She's a small-town shop owner, lover of local, certified tea sommelier and the person we consider to be The Queen of Ganache. As owner and head chocolatier of Ingersoll's Chocolatea, Cindy crafts hand cut chocolates with unique, creative flavours all in house and brings in a handpicked selection of teas. In her upcoming Truffle Camp workshops, visitors will have the chance to take on the role of chocolatier and step behind the counter to craft a dozen of their own delicious, multi-flavoured truffles alongside Cindy herself. Already convinced? Sign up right away!
Step inside this cozy shop and enjoy a warm cup of tea as Cindy brings her own story to light. Specializing in what Cindy refers to as "naked teas", Chocolatea sources teas from all over the world that are not stuffed to the brim with fillers and additive flavours. They're simple and they're delicious. Next it's time to suit up and throw on your chocolatiering outfit complete with hat and apron. You'll feel super profesh.
Heading into the kitchen, learn about how local flavours inspire Cindy! Besides local you'll be using international flavours too... including chocolate moulds from Belgium (where else?!). Each person in the workshop will create their own ganache using the flavours set out with Cindy. You'll get your hands chocoaltey as you heat cream and butter with your ingredients over the stove and stir to perfection. Trust us, it smells unbelievable. Learn Cindy's tricks and tips that give her chocolates a burst of flavour all their own. Plus,get the insider scoop on simple ways to decorate and coat your truffles.
Finally, package them up in custom Chocolatea wrapping and take them home to share (or don't). We'll be surprised if they last the whole car ride home. Everyone gets to keep a dozen.
This one-of-a-kind experience gains you access to a professional chocolatier and sommelier where you'll create a dozen of your own truffles to take home. At $75 you can't beat the value. Stay tuned for details on how and where to sing up for Truffle Camp.
