Saturday, May 13, 12:00-1:30 pm

Family-friendly truffle rolling class. We'll provide the chocolate ganache pre-made that day. You'll roll out the truffles and decorate them with a variety of toppings. Leave the class with a dozen truffles, in a lovely box to gift to your mom (or keep all for yourself). Tickets: Trustee Member $24; non-member $30.

Sunday, May 14, 2:00-3:30 pm

Truffle rolling class for chocolate connoisseurs. Learn to make truffles from start to finish. We'll provide the ingredients for the chocolate ganache and will guide you through the process of mixing & melting all ingredients together. Because this ganache needs to be cooled before rolling, you'll take the ganache that you make home with you to make more truffles later. We'll bring out pre-made ganache for you to roll and decorate with a variety of toppings. You'll leave class with a dozen truffles that you've rolled and decorated, in a lovely box to gift to mom (or keep all for yourself). You'll also take home your ganache to roll additional truffles, add to ice cream, or baking! While we work, we'll sip local wines from the Massachusetts Wine Shop (and learn how to pair wines perfectly with chocolate) and munch on cheese from Appleton Farms. 21+ only please. Tickets: Trustee Member $48; non-member $60.

Please note: We can provide a vegan truffle option, but all Taza chocolate contains traces of nuts. Any allergy concerns, please email kitcheninfo@thetrustees.org.

About Taza Chocolate

At Taza Chocolate we make stone ground, organic chocolate. Cacao is so complex in flavor that we want to let it shout loud and proud. That is why we do less to bring you more. We stone grind cacao beans into perfectly unrefined, minimally processed chocolate with bold flavor and texture, unlike anything you have ever tasted. Taza founder Alex Whitmore took his first bite of stone ground chocolate while traveling in Oaxaca, Mexico. He was so inspired by the rustic intensity that he decided to create a chocolate factory back home in Somerville, MA. Alex apprenticed under a molinero in Oaxaca to learn how to hand-carve granite mill stones to make a new kind of American chocolate that is simply crafted, but seriously good. To source the best cacao for Taza Chocolate, we cultivate direct relationships with growers and pay a premium over the Fair Trade price. We pioneered the first third-party certified Direct Trade cacao sourcing program in the U.S., to ensure transparency and fairness for all.

At the Taza Chocolate Bar, located in the Boston Public Market, visitors can watch as cacao is
ground on-site in stone mills to craft fresh hot and iced chocolate drinks. Taza’s full product line
is also available for purchase. In addition to our Direct Trade Cacao Certification, Taza is Certified USDA Organic, Non-GMO Project Verified, Certified Gluten Free, and OU Kosher Pareve. Taza Chocolate is also dairy free, soy free and vegan.
