Healthy Chocolate Course
May 2021
I've recently been taught by a friend how to make raw chocolate and I was interested to learn more about the chocolate making process. After some research, I found Magdalena and spent the day with her, in her home kitchen learning tempering techniques and how to make 6 delicious recipes all including chocolate! I thoroughly enjoyed the day and learnt so much and look forward to experimenting in my own kitchen. Magdalena was very patient in her teaching which was much appreciated as the time seemed to fly by! I would very much recommend this course and Magdalena to others.

Inspiring course and excellent Covid-19 precautions
Oct 2020
I had spent some time looking for an in depth but hobby based course in chocolate making. I was delighted when I found Magdalena, disappointingly we had to reschedule a couple of times because of the virus. When finally my daughter and I went we were incredibly reassured by the range of precautions in place. The course (the masterclass) covered a range of techniques and in enough depth that I have been confident enough to practise table top tempering at home and use it to create various chocolates. My daughter was excited and inspired by the decorative techniques that we tried. If you are taking up chocolate making then I recommend Magdalena's course - you will soon be impressing friends with your efforts.

We thoroughly enjoyed our chocolate making experience. Magdalena is so knowledgeable and passionate about chocolate but also relaxed and kind. We came away having had a lovely afternoon and made some beautiful and delicious chocolates. Thank you!

Fantastic chocolate course!
Jan 2020 • Business
Don't hesitate to book, Magdalena is a great tutor. We learned so many new skills to apply to our own business. She is so knowledgable and was able to take on board our requirements.
A lovely light lunch was provided and we think the day has been fantastic value for money.

Great course and great teacher. Very relaxed and friendly atmosphere. You learn a ton in such a short space of time. Couldn't recommend it more and the bread is awesome.

What an enjoyable way to spend a Sunday!
Sep 2019
I attended the Tempering Workshop with Magdalena and thoroughly enjoyed her help and great knowledge around anything to do with Chocolate
I learned so much from her and feel now that I can try out things at home, knowing that most disasters can be rescued.
We could take home everything we made, and some extras from Magdalene to start us off at home.
Highly recommended course in a lovely house.
I'm hoping to go back for more soon.

Amazing chocolate masterclass
Aug 2019
I was looking for a one day course on the basics of making chocolate for work and found Cocoa and Heart. Magdalena who runs the course is absolutely lovely and very knowledgeable. As I was on my own, she tailored the day to me and focused on areas where I wanted to gain more practice. She is very open and generous with all her chocolate secrets and she even gave me some ingredients to take home! My friends and family loved everything I made. Overall is was a great day, I learnt so much and had a lot of fun and I will likely return for another course. Thank you so much!

Chocolate making heaven
Jul 2019
This was a superb way to spend a couple of hours and we, all 16 of us, thoroughly enjoyed our morning. Magdalena was warm, enthusiastic and knowledgeable, guiding us through the techniques of piping, adding flavours and decorating, ensuring we all got to taste each other’s creations along the way. But what made this particularly special was that Magdalena sought to find out people’s tastes prior to the workshop. Our team of chocoholics know what they like, and Magdalena was able to provide really good quality chocolate varieties with high cocoa content, fresh cream ganache fillings and fruity flavours, as requested. This made the workshop feel extra special. We also had a quiz at the end, with prizes, while our chocolates were setting in the fridges, which added to the enjoyment. And, we made enough chocolates to fill not one, but two boxes! I can now understand why Magdalena’s called her business Cocoa and Heart – this is a chocolate workshop with a heart – generous, bespoke and delivered with great warmth and passion. So, thank you Magdalena. Small is beautiful. I would struggle to find a better chocolate-making event in the UK.

Chocolate Tempering marvel
Jan 2019 • Friends
I received the tempering course as a Christmas present , and it was marvellous. Magdalena is passionate about chocolate and it’s infectous. Small classes allow even the strangest question to be asked without you feeling like an idiot. All the instructions are explained simply and the course is very hands on, lunch is provided and was lovely. But the unexpected surprise is how much you learn and the amount of goodies you make and have at the end of the day. Now to go home and try and practice. I wholly recommend for those looking to impress there family and friends with future choccy treats.
