Chocolate - The Good, The Bad and The Ugly



We have launched an insightful series of monthly panel events on food around topics that are close to our hearts at Cookery School.

Join us on Monday 25th March 2024, 6pm – 8:30pm, for our next event which is centred around chocolate. We will be discussing a number of important issues relating to chocolate, from The Good: chocolate that has been well sourced containing varying amounts of coca solids and other acceptable ingredients; The Bad: chocolate that has very low levels of cocoa solids and is high in sugar and The Ugly: chocolate with issues around deforestation and modern slavery.
