The Candy Shop

Duration: 3 hoursType: In-PersonPrice: $135

The candies we all know and love are high-tech industrial foods, but they didn’t start out that way. With a thermometer at the ready, it’s perfectly possible to make candy in your own home kitchen. Join Heather Newton as she dives into the science behind cooking sugar to different temperatures, the world of pectins, and how to concoct your own flavor pairings to get creative at home. In class you’ll satisfy your sweet tooth with brown butter pecan caramels; salted rosemary caramels; guava pate de fruit; “sour patch” passion fruit pate de fruit; champagne lollipops studded with edible flowers; and rose lollipops with strawberry and lemon.
