If you never liked school, you may have just been attending the wrong one. Located in Mosman with views of Sydney Harbour you will be the lessons you have been looking for. But no one is looking out the window during these lessons, they’re too busy mixing huge bowls of melted chocolate or sprinkling on hundreds and thousands or trying not to lick the edible printed wrapping. In fact, imagine if Willy Wonka had decided to create a small factory outpost in Mosman where you could learn all the tricks of the chocolate trade, and you’ve got a good idea of what Sydney Chocolate School is like.

Owned and run by Coco chocolate specialist, Rebecca Knights-Kerswell, The Sydney Chocolate School is where you can learn how to create your very own chocolate. The school trains budding chocolatiers the traditional French technique of hand tempering on marble. Established in 2011, over 15,000 delegates have mastered the art of tempering at The Sydney Chocolate School. Guests can get their hands dirty with one of Rebecca’s interactive classes (French hand tempering) or, if that’s not your cup of tea, take up a seat and watch the skilled chocolatiers creating chocolate right before your eyes. If you’ve mastered hand tempering, students can then progress to caramels, truffles, creams and then artwork.

For those who have made a day of it with a party or event, the harbourside setting outside is perfect for drinks and canapes. The Sydney Chocolate School can be booked for corporate events, Champagne high teas, hens parties where participants can make the bonbonniere for the wedding, parties, children’s parties and school holidays activities.
