Chocolate for the Holidays
Long time chef, chocolate expert and former Cheshire Library Assistant Director Maria Brandriff will demonstrate how to make both decadent truffles and some healthier chocolate treats to give as holiday gifts. Recipes and ample samples will be available.
Ms. Brandriff’s interest in fine cooking and baking came from growing up in a Ukrainian household where Viennese-inspired tortes and confections dominated every holiday. Since then, Ms. Brandriff has experimented with the traditional recipes and has come up with her own variations. After an intensive 3 day apprenticeship with a noted Provencal chocolatier, she became more and more involved with the intricacies of working with chocolate. At holiday time she produces hundreds of chocolate truffle candies, which she shares with family and friends.
This program has been funded by the Friends of the Cheshire Public Library.
