Explore the world of chocolate modeling and sculpting with Chef Castagne, a Meilleur Ouvrier de France Chocolatier.  Bring to class a simple, small figurine and Castagne will lead you through modeling the figurine into a large chocolate piece.  You will discover and practice the new modeling technique of cold emulsion, working with chocolate as you would clay. You will use a knife and learn to carve your showpiece.  Once you have mastered these skills your artwork can be displayed on buffets and in competition.

Castagne has participated and judged in many international competitions.  He won the prestigious Grand Prix International de la Chocolaterie, Paris in 1992.
