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.

Everyone is raving about our group event! It was such a fun and engaging way to spend an hour with my team at work. Everyone loves chocolate and it was so fun to not only get involved and try something new, but also listen to Nick and his charismatic presentation style. He is a great ambassador for his trade and the passion he has for his craft comes through in the session. Thank you so much! I will be recommending to all!

I had heard so much about the Chocolate Experience, yet no details that would have prepared me for such a great, fun, informative, and excellent experience. Nick is a great storyteller and used so many tools with video, imaginery, and his speaking voice to bring the experience to live. I will highly recommend this experience and will definitely do it again.--Karen S. Brown I had no idea what to expect but I was delightfully pleased. The historical information really set the tone and gave us "food for thought" about where chocolate comes from. I was really surprised at how long the process takes. It was fun and if I try it again on my own I'll be more creative with my other ingredients. And more than anything, it was fun taking instructions from a "Man" in the Kitchen! Nick is delightful and he was kind to put up with my silliness 😄 Thank You for helping me experience something new. --Deborah Strahorn I thoroughly enjoyed the chocolate candy making experience with Nick. He was so friendly that I felt like he was a relative! His knowledge of chocolate and his detailed instructions put me at ease with the process. I would definitely recommend this experience to others!--Deidre Dixon I enjoyed the virtual chocolate experience. Nick's presentation was very educational seeing the process from the beginning.--Sharon Adams Nick was very knowledgeabl and personable. I learned so much more than I thought I would have!--Cailah Knapp

Fabulous experience... Nick is so fun and warm as a host! He is very knowledgeable — This was a wonderful lesson in the science and history behind chocolate. What a relaxing way to spend an hour — who knew tempering chocolate could be so meditative? I made an almond-cranberry bar and a chili & sea salt bar. I am looking forward to experimenting with more flavors on my own!
