The Chocolate Studio - Bigger and Better

A true one stop chocolate shop.

by: Lindt Chocolate | 14 Jun 2010

Retaining the distinction of being a world first, The Chocolate Studio, in association with Lindt, is pleased to announce that the success of their recent move to the charming Cape Quarter, de Waterkant, Cape Town has created the demand for a BIGGER and BETTER studio from which to run their deliciously unique workshops and training courses. 

Remaining in their original location the studio has expanded into the adjoining premises and with this has introduced a host of delicious new workshops that will allow chocolate lovers of all skill levels to create and explore the many techniques involved in chocolate work.

The new workshops include the entry level Chocolate Appreciation Session, Dessert Tasters 1 and 2 for those looking for delicious dessert combinations to bake at home, Lindt Cup Cakes, The Art of Truffle Making, Lindt Petit Desserts – a workshop focused on dessert items presented in mini glasses, Cake Decorating which will teach one how to bake and decorate speciality cakes, Lindt Petit Gateaux, Chocolate Tempering, Décor and Showpiece and Chocolate and Confectionary.

Shorter workshops such as Dessert Tasters 1 and 2 and the Art of Truffle Making are also offered as social get-togethers and are a perfect solution for an alternative and truly memorable client function and office team building.

For retail lovers the studio shop boasts an array of specialized chocolate equipment and apparatus, Lindt product, Chocolate Studio souvenirs and speciality items such as the Lindt Passions Recipe book and fondue set.

“Working with the finest Swiss chocolate everyday and having the opportunity to work with people and encourage them to experiment with chocolate, are a few of the things that I love about my job” says Chocolate Studio Manager and Head Chef Dimo Simatos.  Simatos’ love affair with chocolate began at a young age tasting confectionary from a local confectionary shop in Johannesburg. 

From sweet to astringent, Lindt is renowned not only for its global adventure in different beans (from Ecuador to Madagascar) found in favourites such as the Excellence 70% cocoa and Intense Orange but also for ideas which push the flavour envelope from chili to a touch of sea salt.  So in the pursuit for a pure sensory adventure and to create your very own chocolate delights, visit the Chocolate Studio for a truly remarkable way to experience the magic of chocolate in all its glory.
