Vad du kommer att göra

On this experience you’ll learn the true story of how chocolate becomes the world’s favourite sweet, a bitter sweet tale of hard work, artisanship and how business can be a force for good.

We start with our special welcome to Jamaica. We’re located on the edge of the Blue Mountains overlooking Kingston.

We’ll look down across the city towards the harbour as I give a brief history of the island and the historical use of cacao.

We then get to know each other before we make our inclusion bars.

I’ll tell you about how I went from a BBC Correspondent to a chocolate maker before I explain how we go from the raw ingredients to the finished yummy product.

I’ll show you how to hand temper chocolate, from our original development kitchen using a bowl, a table and a spatula.

Before I walk you through creating your own custom made inclusion chocolate bars.

We then go right into the farm, driving over a river bed, to have a closer look at the cacao estate.

We’ll introduce you to the pods up close, we’ll look inside the fruit and I’ll explain how the beans are fermented on the farm and how the nibs are processed before we unveil your bespoke bars.

This Experience is great for team-building. Book a private experience for your group. Is your group larger than my listed max group size for private groups? Send me a message.
Other things to note
Due to the fact I'll be using multiple cameras this will be best to watch on a PC so that you can maximise views and also see your fellow experiencers. Especially when we get into the tasting segment.

I'm a former BBC News foreign correspondent, my parents are Jamaican and when I discovered the amazing cacao here on the island, I decided to start my own chocolate factory! We've since won a number of international awards for our bars and work alongside chocolate companies from around the world on sourcing the best fine flavour cacao across the Caribbean. We're a farm to bar company, from harvest and fermentation through to making the finished product, that now grace some of the most exclusive hotels and villas in the Caribbean, but ultimately I really like sharing my love of all things chocolate. I'm a history buff so I like linking the past and the present to show the development of the world's favourite confectionary. That's why we call the experience, from seed to bar.

Nick was a fantastic host and made our virtual team outing a fun and unique experience. He’s so friendly, funny, and knowledgeable. We learned a lot about the history or chocolate, how to properly temper chocolate, and walked away with great treats to share. I’ve already recommended this experience to others in my company!

I would recommend this experience 200%. This was my second time taking this experience and once again Nick was amazing! Perfect team bonding activity and I could very well see myself taking it again with family or friends because Nick makes it super accessible, engaging, and fun for everybody. From tempering chocolate, to telling you all about cocoa & chocolate history, and providing you with great tips, Nick was fantastic and made it seem super easy. On top of that our chocolates turned out delicious, so what else to ask for? Thanks a lot Nick!

Nick's class was so much fun! Not only was it a great way to socialize online, the chocolate candy class, plus the history he provided on the Caribbean and chocolate gave it an extra special touch. Nick did a great of engaging all the participants and keeping the conversation lively. All-in-all, I loved my first Airbnb Online Event. Bravo, Nick!

Did this class for a company team bonding experience. Nick was super nice and engaging. Provided us with great context into chocolate making and provided awesome visuals so it kinda felt we are taken away to Jamaica. Ended with a shiny yummy chocolate! Thank you Nick! Can't wait to try other variations.

Wow! Nick's energy simply jumps out of your screen from the get-go! An amazing, engaging experience. I love how he took a moment to get to know us personally, and frequently referred to us and asked us various questions throughout the session. If only all my webinars could be this memorable! One bowl of chocolate at a time, here we go!
