Það sem verður gert

On this experience you’ll learn the true story of how chocolate becomes the world’s favourite sweet, a bitter sweet tale of hard work, artisanship and how business can be a force for good.

We start with our special welcome to Jamaica. We’re located on the edge of the Blue Mountains overlooking Kingston.

We’ll look down across the city towards the harbour as I give a brief history of the island and the historical use of cacao.

We then get to know each other before we make our inclusion bars.

I’ll tell you about how I went from a BBC Correspondent to a chocolate maker before I explain how we go from the raw ingredients to the finished yummy product.

I’ll show you how to hand temper chocolate, from our original development kitchen using a bowl, a table and a spatula.

Before I walk you through creating your own custom made inclusion chocolate bars.

We then go right into the farm, driving over a river bed, to have a closer look at the cacao estate.

We’ll introduce you to the pods up close, we’ll look inside the fruit and I’ll explain how the beans are fermented on the farm and how the nibs are processed before we unveil your bespoke bars.

This Experience is great for team-building. Book a private experience for your group. Is your group larger than my listed max group size for private groups? Send me a message.
Other things to note
Due to the fact I'll be using multiple cameras this will be best to watch on a PC so that you can maximise views and also see your fellow experiencers. Especially when we get into the tasting segment.

I'm a former BBC News foreign correspondent, my parents are Jamaican and when I discovered the amazing cacao here on the island, I decided to start my own chocolate factory! We've since won a number of international awards for our bars and work alongside chocolate companies from around the world on sourcing the best fine flavour cacao across the Caribbean. We're a farm to bar company, from harvest and fermentation through to making the finished product, that now grace some of the most exclusive hotels and villas in the Caribbean, but ultimately I really like sharing my love of all things chocolate. I'm a history buff so I like linking the past and the present to show the development of the world's favourite confectionary. That's why we call the experience, from seed to bar.

Nick has been by far the most engaging host I've had the chance to experience via online experiences. He was friendly, energetic, and our group thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

It is always a fun hour to spend with Nick!! He is wonderfully personable and has a great storytelling manner. I learned so much about the history and culture surrounding chocolate ! And how fun to learn a lot of the science behind what chocolate is and why must be tempered. Cool to learn how to revive an old or cold piece of chocolate . Fun to discuss ingredients like chili and nuts and fruit and mixing chocolate types. My bars turned out beautifully and super tasty. Can’t wait to experiment more. Absolutely a must-do experience !!!!

What a great way to visit Jamaica, visit with family, learn the science of chocolate, and eat delicious food . . . all without leaving home. We had a wonderful experience with Nick and loved every minute. I highly recommend it to everyone!

I absolutely loved my experience learning about chocolate and the live tutorial offered by Nick! He is so personable and charismatic, he made learning about chocolate so much fun and, above all, very memorable. I can't wait to use my new knowledge to make my own chocolate creations. Thank you Nick!

Nick really dove in and interacted with our whole group (~20 of us!) for a work event. The experience allowed for different levels of involvement. Thank you for the fun evening, Nick!

Spent a fun hour tempering chocolate and learning a bit about chocolate and Jamaica. Nick is very engaging and does a great job of involving everyone in the process and checking in on how they’re doing.
