Beat the Heat with Fruit and Herbal Truffles

Local chocolate is merging with local fruit at ’ summer with themed truffle-making parties! Confectionista Katherine Duncan is opening her kitchen and recipe book for two evenings of chocolate tasting, chocolate-making and champagne.

Attendees will sample chocolates, discuss pairings, and taste ingredients before moving on to designing flavors and creating the creamy ganache topping. In addition creating hand-rolled truffles, each participant will leave with a sampling of the truffles they created.


Local Fruits - July 1, 6:30 pm
All of the fruit comes from local farmers markets and is picked just 24 hours before the class. The result is sweeter fruit and a more delicious truffle combination. Attendees will work with local apricots, blackberries, raspberries, strawberries, rhubarb, cherries and more!

Herbal Infusions - August 1, 6:30 pm

Katherine Anne’s Rosemary Sea Salt caramel masters the herbs & sweets duo and this class will teach how to create truffles flavored with rosemary, thyme, and basil, as well as what ingredients pair best with those herbs.

The cost for each party is $60 per person and reservations are required. .

Katherine Anne Confections is a small artisan sweets company. We believe that focusing on local and organic ingredients is the only way to get such decadent truffles and soft, creamy caramels.
