Chocolate is delicious to eat – but how often do you consider the chemistry behind good chocolate? We'll examine some of the science that goes into making chocolate (with plenty of tastings along the way!) You'll use that scientific knowledge to make a work of art you can take home to show off to friends and family...or devour immediately. Discover why chocolate must be 'tempered' (and what that actually means) before we can use it. There will be demonstrations, plenty of tastings, and then you'll put your new knowledge into practice and make your own chocolate centrepiece.

Chloë Miller will be your host for the evening. Chloë is a scientist and lover of chocolate. Combining the two she has explored why chocolate behaves the way it does, and used her knowledge to sculpt chocolate centrepieces. ChloeWhen she's not exercising to work off the large amount of chocolate she consumes, Chloë teaches science to secondary school students.

Canapés provided. Drinks at bar prices.
