You really can’t beat a bit of chocolate to get us over the hump in the week. I am reminiscing back to the morning I spent in chocolate heaven not so long ago. If you follow Bec Boop on Periscope or Instagram you will have seen some previews of my chocolate masterpieces (ok, ok that’s going a bit far but you get the idea).
I would be first to admit that I’m not the best in the kitchen, so when it comes to baking, cooking or anything food related while I enjoy trying new things out I just don’t have the time or knowledge to be creative in the kitchen. When I spotted that Lauren from Blonde-Vision was organising a bloggers chocolate workshop, I signed up straight away. Part of the reason I am here in London is to meet new people and try new experiences so this was right up my street. I was lucky as the event location was only a short walk from my house and it’s so nice to actually be able to walk to your destination in London and not have to get on public transport. Don’t get me wrong I think the public transport system is fantastic for getting around central London but at the weekend there’s nothing better than taking in the fresh air and new sights on a morning stroll.
I trotted off down to MyChocolate which is a London based workshop destination for hen parties, corporate team-building and various other group chocolate related demonstrations. I arrived just on time and settled into the first free seat I spotted. This always tends to be my approach at a bloggers event – sit, followed by taking in my surroundings. The ladies at my table were fab and we enjoyed some twitter lols across the table while getting to know each other before the demonstration started.
Firstly we learned about the various qualities of chocolate and tried some savoury chocolate including a surprisingly delicious lemon and poppy seed white chocolate sample.
The host had us all in stitches laughing and I honestly had such fun at the workshop. Before long it was time to begin creating our own chocolate truffles and decorating our marshmallows and fudge. While mine indeed do not look amazing you can be sure they tasted great and they were gone in seconds. This sure was a fun way to spend a Sunday morning, albeit a messy one! I was only sorry I didn’t get to hang around after and get to know the other bloggers a bit better but I had some work related revision to do so off I went home. I only took a minimal number of photographs for fear of getting my DSLR covered in melted chocolate. If you search the #MyChocBloggers hashtag on twitter or instagram you’re sure to find some of the group photos from the event.
Have you ever attended a chocolate workshop?
