Participants learned tempering, how to prevent bloom, the application and use of chocolate and compounds, how to select chocolate for different applications, depositing techniques, enrobing techniques, how to manage mistakes, secrets to making meltaways, bark, truffles and ganache, and critical sensory evaluation. Students also learned good manufacturing practices, sanitation and basic traceability systems.
