Students Create Sweet Treats with Passion

Students Create Sweet Treats with Passion

On Friday 8 May Galia Orme, owner of CHOC Chick Raw Chocolates Ltd., shared her chocolate knowledge and truffle making skills with Team Academy students.

During the first half of the workshop Galia worked with the ‘Sweetas’ business team in BACA’s kitchen.  She taught this group of year 7 girls about raw chocolate, instructed them on how to make truffles and shared insights into what has made her business successful.

The second half of the session consisted of a presentation about the ‘CHOC Chick Raw Chocolates’ business in the Pegasus Suite to the entire year 7 Team Academy group, and a tasting of the freshly made truffles. The presentation included the fair trade model and how Galia successfully works with Ecuadorian producers. Our partners the Starr Pioneer mentors from the Grand Hotel and Darren Abrahams also attended the session.
