Slattery’s: A chocolatey day out

On the 11th September, 16 Food Technology pupils spent the day at Slattery's, chocolatier and patissier, to experience a Chocolate Enterprise Day.


The day began with a masterclass from a professional chocolatier where the girls learned how to create their own handmade fully decorated chocolates. They produced beautiful crafted chocolates and lollipops loaded with sprinkles, sweets and colourful chocolate buttons.

Divided into teams, the girls were given the challenge of producing a chocolate-based product complete with packaging and then presenting their ideas, costings and marketing plan in the style of The Apprentice.

Slattery's judges were most impressed with the quality and creativity of the products and presentations. In the end, the team who created lollipops won with their excellent display and clear, fluent presentation. They took home a chocolate medal and a book about chocolate written by John Slattery himself.
