Truffles made easy

I deliver a demonstration making truffles using traditional methods. I use video for the first part as these take overnight cooling. I demonstrate how to finish them and decorate them. Then using a recipe I devised for school children I make fast truffles which are still lovely. It is nice to have a couple of volunteers to make them with me. There will be truffles for your group to taste. The whole demonstration is projected so that everyone can see what is happening. I will need access to water – 2x6ft tables and electric points.

I charge £60 which includes truffles for tasting and travel unless over 20 miles. Over 20 miles is charged at 35p per extra mile. The session lasts up to an hour. No limit on numbers.

 

Cookery

This is suitable for adults, children or both. This can be done where there are cooking facilities. Back to basic cooking and meal planning. I can also do various no-cook recipes such as truffles and fresh chutney. Most equipment and ingredients are supplied. I will need tables, cooker and washing up facilities. Cost £60 plus cost of ingredients and mileage as above. A group may hire a hall and I would do demonstration. The session lasts up to an hour. Numbers limited to 15

 

Card making

All equipment supplied. There will be a demonstration making a couple of cards, then you can make your own using the materials provided. If you have any material you would like to make your card, feel free to bring it along and we will try to incorporate it into your design. The cost is £60 plus mileage as above. The session lasts up to an hour. Numbers limited to 15. I will need a table and chairs.

 

Flower and Chocolates

Simple chocolate & flower bouquet and making a button hole. A couple of volunteers can do the button hole alongside me which makes it fun. All material is supplied. The session lasts up to an hour. The cost is £60 plus mileage as above. No limit to numbers.

 

I can use video and live projection for all of my demonstrations so that everyone can see what is happening.
