Co budeš dělat

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.

I booked Nick’s chocolate experience for a group of 11 adults and kids for something fun to do for my birthday in Lockdown. I wasn’t disappointed, Nick was really inclusive of the whole group especially the kids and got us all laughing and having fun together. We made some lovely chocolate and learned some interesting facts and history. It was an extra special treat to see beautiful Jamaica and feel like we were almost transported there! Thanks Nick!

This was great fun. Nick was very patient with the group and great with everyone including the 3 children. I would recommend this activity as it’s a great way to spend an hour, especially in the lockdown. The end result (the chocolate) didn’t last long ! 😋.

Nick provided an exceptional experience for my family. He taught us how to make chocolates, and shared history and insights on the cacao business in a fun and interesting way. He is warm and personable, adding to the experience overall. My family came away with great memories and new skills to impress! This activity is perfect for spending time with loved ones virtually, and can be done with few resources and no experience, or with all the chocolate patisserie bells and whistles.

Our high school offered this experience to students in January 2021. Here's what the students wrote afterward: This was so so so so so much fun! The presenter was super funny, answered all of our questions, and helped us all get tempered chocolate over zoom! I thought the balance between actually making chocolate and learning about the history of chocolate made the presentation super engaging. Overall, thank you so much for a great session! It was the best of my week :) Thank you! I liked both the tempering part and the history, and how we didn't need any fancy equipment - it was relatively easy to follow. Nick, thank you for hosting this session and teaching me the skill of making my own chocolate at home! The chocolate was amazing and you were so funny and an amazing instructor. I loved your metaphors about cocoa butter crystals and your lively teaching style! Fun class, engaging presenter Thank you so much for teaching us about the origins and how to temper chocolate! I really enjoyed the making process and the special add-ons we were each able to add to our bar to make them unique. Thank you again for being an incredibly entertaining presenter! This session was by far my favorite, and it was actually on my birthday (which made it even more fun :)) I really appreciated how you checked in with every single student individually to make sure they were doing ok but still kept everyone engaged. Thank you so much for teaching us! Thank you Nick for this wonderful chocolate-making lesson. I learned so many new things about chocolate and loved the class! Thank you so much for leading this intersession!!! It was SO much fun and I felt like it worked seamlessly in the virtual format. You were hilarious and I wish I wasn't a senior so I could take this intersession again. Thank you so much for teaching us about how to temper chocolate and a little bit of knowledge with us! This had to be the best class throughout the whole Intersession! My family really enjoyed the turmeric chocolate suggestion you gave. Thank you so much for teaching us about chocolate origins and how to create chocolate! It was such a fun experience :) Nick, thank you for such a fun lesson!! You were so kind and knowledgeable and your passion for chocolate was palpable. I know I speak for everyone when I say your humor and energy kept us all excited and curious throughout the session, and it was definitely an experience to remember! Phenomenal job, thank you for presenting!! Thank you so much for visiting our school and teaching us how to make chocolates. I really enjoyed your intersession as well as your teaching style! It was cool to learn about the history of chocolate and of course, I loved making + eating it! - Thank you, Nick! I really enjoyed the session, and feel inspired to temper more chocolate and get creative with it in the future! The presenter was very energetic and lively and it made the class a whole lot more fun. Thanks for an amazing class! Thank you for making the class really fun. The stories were cool as we were making the chocolates. Thank you so much! It was really interesting to learn about the process of chocolate making. Thank you for showing us the process of chocolate making visually and explaining it so clearly! I had a great time! The presenter was really nice and made the session really fun! I enjoyed how we got to make/modify chocolate as well as learning a bit of the science, process, and history behind it as well. Thank you so much for the amazing talk! I had a ton of fun learning about chocolate, and was able to share it with my family afterward! Very tasty and looks quite professional! My parents and I love chocolate and my dog is annoyed that she can't have any. Hi Nick! Thank you for a fantastic class. I really appreciated how you made an effort to talk to the students by their first names (which made us feel very special). You led an amazing course with your jokes and enthusiasm and I am very grateful to have been able to participate.
