Roasting and Conching - Chocolate Flavor Secrets

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Exceptional chocolate is created through a series of events. Change any one event and the outcome is a new creation. Two of these events are roasting and conching. Participants will experience how changing cocoa roasting levels can dramatically affect chocolate flavors. Next, we discover that when chocolate is subjected to heat, aeration and motion, another remarkable flavor change occurs. This is conching. This interactive multimedia presentation includes tasting several chocolates with varying roast and conche levels to experience flavor changes first hand. The presenter creates unique chocolate recipes specifically for this session to help illustrate the essential roles of roasting and conching on chocolate flavor development.
