Det skal I lave

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 is fantastic - he's personable, he's funny, he's so knowledgeable, and his passion for chocolate is contagious! Really recommend this for families, groups of friends, or a team activity with your colleagues.

NIck is fantastic at connecting everyone to the experience so it truly feels shared and "live" as if we were in his kitchen.

Nick is by far one of the most personable airbnb hosts! He was such a joy to listen to and he has a lot of interesting information about the island he loves, about chocolate production, and was extremely engaging. We learned how to "temper" chocolate which is a skill I will always be able to use. We all made a chocolate bar together and then I proceeded to continue making more on my own. Highly recommend and it would be a fun one with a family or work group.

Nick is a star. You just want him as your friend immediately. I learnt how arduous chocolate is to actually make. Will make me savory it even more in the future!

Nick was super engaging. I am an introverted person and was worried about doing a class with strangers, but Nick did a great job at putting me at ease and making the class fun. I learned a lot about the history of cacao, the process of making chocolate from the bean to the bar, and how to temper chocolate. Will definitely be tempering chocolate again in the future!

Fantastic experience. Really good fun and felt personal, even though there were about 8 of us taking part. Nick was a great host and got the perfect balance between being informative but light-hearted so it didn't feel like a lecture. Very hands-on and the chocolates turned out amazingly! Delicious and looked really professional but so easy. I'll definitely be making more and trying out new flavour combinations. Would highly recommend for anyone who loves chocolate!
