All about the course
Chocolate is a passion. Those who really love it know they just can’t live without it. But too often we let our passion tempt us into buying snacks we know are not just unhealthy, but also bad for the planet. In this course, Lore Salas will teach you everything you need to know to create your own chocolate confections, with no processed ingredients: just natural, wholesome foods free from dairy, gluten and refined sugars.
Since receiving her diploma as a pastry chef, Lore Salas has shared her recipes on Instagram @datesandavocados. Although she has acquired a large following, generating awareness about plant-based food is just one part of the equation. Now Lore is launching her first online course to teach you the fundamentals and get you on the path to mastering plant-based chocolate confections.
You will discover the origins and benefits of this ancient fruit as well as the secrets and tips of the best chocolate makers. You will learn all the necessary basics so that you can go further on your own, be adventurous and “paint” your chocolate or decorate it with edible gold if you like. From fudges and truffles to tempered chocolate and the fluffiest mousse, follow Lore and start your own journey to become a true chocolatier!
