Maria Poirier-Brandriff, long time chef and chocolatier, will demonstrate making “Festive Chocolates for the Holidays” on Thursday, October 23rd at 7 p.m. in the program room.
Attendees will learn about chocolate with samples included and tips will be provided on making desserts and chocolates. Mrs. Brandriff started out as a self-taught chef or as she puts it “Julia Child taught me to cook”. She has always had a strong interest in dessert
and pastry making, which eventually evolved into a passion for chocolate making. In 2001, she completed a certificate of Gastronomy from the University of New Haven and in the winter of 2004, she took a private course in chocolate making with a professional chocolatier in the city of Arles in Provence, France. Her presentation will include a discussion of the varieties of chocolate available and how to work with chocolate.
