Maria BrandriffWhat could be better on a cold winter's day than indulging in some rich satisfying chocolate? Learning to make your own chocolate truffles could definitely top that!
Maria Brandriff, Assistant Director of the Cheshire Public Library, dons her second hat, that of chocolatier and teacher of all things chocolate. Maria 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.

Maria's presentation includes a discussion of the varieties of chocolate available, how to work with chocolate, and teaching the basics of chocolate truffle making. This is a demonstration, with generous samples. Registration required, online at www.prosserlibrary.info or by calling 860-243-9721.
