About the event
Learn how to make handmade chocolates whilst singing away to sacred Kirtans just
like the professionals at our Christmas Chocolate Making Workshop with Kirtan.
Friday 9th December 2022 7- 9 pm.
It’s creative and fun and at the end of the session you have your very own Christmas
inspired chocolate creations to enjoy. Share them with family and friends, give them
as Christmas gifts or keep them all to yourself. The choice is yours! Raw, unspoilt, natural chocolate is abundant in iron, zinc, calcium and magnesium, which are common deficiencies in western society due to depleted soils from over farming. Unlike chocolate with added dairy, which inhibits the absorption of cacao’s natural benefits, raw cacao can aid in having a healthy heart, balance hormones, make you feel happy and assist in combating depression and is naturally high in antioxidants.
Geet Navjot Kaur will be guiding you through your vegan chocolate making session.
You will learn to make basic raw chocolate and discover which unrefined sugar substitutes work best. You will also make soft centre chocolates, which of course you will get to eat and in-joy.
Please let us know of any allergies or intolerances on booking.
