CHOCOLATE WORKSHOP

Chocolate Villa Lena kids Tuscany, workshop,

May 2016

Drawing inspiration from the edible herbs and flowers that can be found around the Villa Lena grounds, chef in residence Jill Donenfeld and designer Emma Montague led a children’s workshop that paired chocolate with everything from rosemary to lavender.  First finding the flavours on a foraging walk through the grounds and later combining these with sticky bowls of melted dark chocolate.

The children’s activities were run as part of the artist residency program set up on the grounds, and were perfect for families to enjoy. The foraging and cooking experience were part of the slow food, organic ethos of Villa Lena in the context of imaginative and creative play.
