“This raw chocolate class was a unique, fun and informative choice for our Staff party. Our teacher Malcolm kept everyone entertained with his encyclopedic knowledge of chocolate’s history and kept us laughing out loud at his personal culinary hijinks and his adventures abroad. 

Everyone’s favourite time of the class was getting our hands into the ingredients and then tasting our way through the possibilities: what does chocolate taste like with citrus? Combining sea salt and vanilla is yum! How about making chocolate with no sweetener? We tried them all and ate our creations. You will leave this class with the wisdom and excitement to make more of your own raw chocolate at home, I promise.”

Alison Gilroy, General Manager – Market 17 organic grocery store Calgary, Alberta

The workshops can be made with hands-on and team-building activities and are an accessible mix of ‘how-to’ skills and concepts that are brought to life through stories and anecdotes, while referencing cultural traditions and supporting science. This combination provides a perfect balance of intellectual understanding, emotional connection and a light sense humour to add the element of fun.

Your team will be engaged and entertained while gaining insight into a variety of topics that range from the scientific to the philosophical with practical techniques and concepts that can be implemented right away.

“I first did the Alchemy of Cacao course with my wife, Lucy, a few years ago.  The thought stuck in my head that it would be great fun to offer it as a work party. So, for our Christmas party got the whole team together at the Light Cellar, we brought some bottles of vino and theyprovided the amazing raw organic treats.  Malcolm then led us through the art of making raw chocolate. We all had a go and got to take home our creations…chocolate with a hint of orange, sweetened with honey and sprinkled with goji berries was my favourite.  Our staff reported that it was one of the best Christmas parties they have ever been to.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

The classes I have taken will surely impact my life in the most profound way; indeed it already has. It is so exciting for someone like me, with such a vast knowledge of culinary and health matters, to discover a previously unknown category of food preparation that will not only delight my palate, but more importantly serve to support and strengthen my body and mind. Malcolm is such a skilled instructor, and his love of all things natural and health- giving resonates in his every word. Thank you for all that you do.
