Diamonds are a girl’s best friend, but chocolate, it seems, is a women’s best friend! With this in mind, Hirsch’s Centurion recently held an exciting chocolate demo where guests could experience the wonderful world of chocolate, from the chocolate pod to the end product that they were lucky enough to taste!
Chef Marijke Weber, who was a representative of Four Seasons the Westcliff for an advancedchocolate course with the reputable Belgium Chocolate company “Calebaut”, was on hand to put guests through their paces. She started out by giving some background information on the origins of chocolate and the difference between normal baking chocolate and pure Lindt chocolate. After the presentation the fun began as she demonstrated the different techniques of chocolate decorating. She made a cocoa gelee which she used to cover the cake she made beforehand, along with filled chocolates and chocolate feathers. She also taught the guests some great piping techniques as well so that their homemade chocolates could be as pretty as a bakery’s!
Among the guests was Mrs Commonwealth SA Finalist 2017, Lolo Kekana, who took some time out of her busy schedule to broaden her knowledge and get more involved in the community to make them aware of social issues as well as health issues such as cancer. Part of her responsibilities as Mrs Commonwealth is to contribute actively towards social upliftment, to become a spokeperson on issues women face everyday, and to bring wealth to the community.
