Still searching for the perfect Valentine’s gift? Or simply looking for something fun and different to do where you can even learn to do the impossible (i.e. temper your own chocolate!)? Look no further than an evening spent with Sue Lewis, a true artisan chocolatier who makes all of her delectable and sweet morsels from the finest and freshest of ingredients, and is so so passionate and knowledgeable about her trade. Read more about her and what inspires her here. Every Thursday night at her store at 44 Derby Rd Subiaco, Sue holds classes on chocolate tasting and tempering – and if that doesn’t turn you on, you must be a two hundred and ten years old! Or a zombie. Or a cucumber. Ok, basically anything that’s not alive!
Sue let me try my hand at tempering some chocolate when I last visited her. There is something truly therapeutic about pouring out all that delicious, molten chocolate out onto a marble slab and then swirling it around – almost hypnotic! So nice…
Not only will you get the chance to play with your food (something I still get in trouble for!) but chocolate tastings and a glass of bubbly await you as you arrive. Treat yourself and your loved one/bestie/Mumsy to an evening of taste bud titillation. Call or email Sue for more details and to make bookings. Or even better, visit the store in person and leave with the best chocolates/ice cream/sorbet/brownies/all the above you would have tasted this side of the equator, or dare I say, ever!
