Who needs christmas pud when you can have raw chocolate?

With this festive workshop you can expect expert tuition from Jane, a passionate teacher who loves to share her skill and extensive knowledge of food within a nurturing workshop experience.

janeJane is thrilled and excited to offer an honest and beautiful superfood, combining the purest raw cacao with delicate festive flavours such as cranberry, orange and almond chocolate bark in her current workshop series. Janes’ raw chocolate work is made without cane sugar and dairy ingredient, an elegant product of high quality raw healthy chocolate, made with utter love, gratitude and hearty goodness.

The workshops run at Janes place are based in a beautiful heart filled space nestled in glorious Hove, East Sussex: offering an experience that is fun, friendly and welcoming.

A personal message from Jane

I love this time of year! Let’s get into the festive spirit and spend a cosy Sunday afternoon learning about raw chocolate – the healthier alternative to regular chocolate. The workshop is perfect for children, so you and your family can have a huge amount of fun learning new skills and create your own seasonal chocolate products to take home with you. We will make;

Cranberry, orange & almond chocolate bark
Chocolate popcorn cakes
Dipped chocolate apricots
Festive chocolates (mini santas, snowmen and more)

Whilst the chocolate sets, we get creative & decorate our chocolate boxes with seasonal stickers & gems.

Why Raw?

‘Huffington Post’ – If you’ve got a penchant for chocolate-y goodness, but don’t want to load up on processed food or sugar then cacao might be just the ticket.

Cacao is the raw, unprocessed chocolate superfood on everyone’s lips. Unlike your regular chocolate bar, raw cacao is supercharged with magnesium and flavanoids, which makes it good for you inside and out.

What Is Cacao?

Although cacao and cocoa are very similar (they look almost identical, are practically spelled the same, and both come from the Theobroma cacao tree) they are not be confused with one another.

Think of cacao as the healthier relative of cocoa: raw cacao is made by cold-pressing unroasted cocoa beans, which preserves the beans nutritional content; cocoa is heavily processed, roasted at high temperatures and has a lot of sugar added to it, which almost zaps away the health benefits.

Janes Place Testimonial

What a delightful space Jane’s Place is. I attended a one-day workshop there and immediately felt comfortable as I walked through the door. Jane’s friendly, open approach and delicious food makes her the perfect hostess. The event room is large and bright and simply but beautifully decorated. I think we all really enjoyed eating lunch round the kitchen table which somehow just felt so joyous. A very special experience!
