Kick off your day with Chef Wolff! Even culinary novices will leave understanding where chocolate comes from and where it is going. Rich visual examples from museums and historical records trace the culture of chocolate through art and artifacts; from the early Mayans, our presidents and heroes, to the sweat shops of NYC, and soldiers of WWII. From bean to bar, you’ll learn how chocolate is made – from original growth of the cacao bean in country of origin to its harvest, processing, and preparation. Together we’ll taste some chocolate to experience different flavors and nuances.
Chef Wolff has worked in chocolate manufacturing, pastry development, and retail product production development in France, Switzerland, and the Americas. As a classically trained chef he has worked internationally in various segments of the industry including hotels, fine and casual dining, manufacturing, consumer food products, and R&D to change the quality and look of American food. He is Vice-President of Culinary Innovation at Café Valley Bakery in Phoenix and resides in Carefree, AZ.
