Au programme

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.

We booked a session with Nick for one of our intern team bonding events at my company and would highly recommend this experience! This was a remote session and he was able to make it very interactive and was engaging the entire time. You won’t be disappointed!

I bought this for a present for my son’s 16th birthday in lockdown. He really enjoyed the whole experience. He says Nick was very friendly, knows his stuff. He enjoyed hearing about the origins of chocolate & the processes and picking up some cooking tips.

Nick is such a cool person with an even cooler story. I had a great experience. He’s very inclusive and seeks to get to know everyone and engaged with everyone in the virtual room. 100% recommend.

An awesome activity to sign up for with friends or coworkers alike. Nick was witty, thoughtful, and engaged our participants individually even if our cameras were off. I loved learning about the history of cacao and how his family played a role in his upbringing. I already know how to temper chocolate in the microwave but it was a nice refresh and a suitable activity for the time given (~40 min lecture/Q&A, last 20 min making our chocolate bars/bark).

I'm going to be chocolatey here --- Nick is as warm as the chocolate he teaches you to temper, he's fun, interesting and includes everyone on the experience. I highly recommend spending the time with him.
