Online Cooking Class: Ganache Confections

Decadent chocolate treats take the spotlight in Chef Zach’s sweet online cooking class.

Truffles made from silky ganache are a truly special indulgence; confections with a texture as luxurious as their flavors. In this interactive virtual cooking class, Chef Zach removes the challenges of ganache by teaching you simple professional methods to prepare three luscious gourmet recipes: a milk chocolate mocha citron, a dark chocolate vegan raspberry ganache and an orange dark chocolate, all created from a base of heavy whipping cream, melted chocolate and special flavorings.

Fun and informative. Going over the theory and science behind what we were doing and then actually doing it hands on was good. Chef Zach is very knowledgeable and experienced.
