Interested in increasing your bonbon and chocolate confection production with a One-Shot Machine?
Then this class is for you! L’École Valrhona Brooklyn is partnering with Tomric to bring you this intensive
chocolate class focused on using the One-Shot Selmi Tuttuno system to produce chocolate bonbons,
bars, and confections using Valrhona chocolate. A One-Shot machine creates filled chocolate products
in a single deposit utilizing nozzles and a conveyor belt. This machine is a quick and efficient way to
automate and scale your production when operated properly. L’École Valrhona Pastry Chef and One-
Shot expert Romain Grzelczyk will teach you how to set up, maintain, and run a One-Shot Selmi Tuttuno
machine, and how to adapt your recipes for use in this special machine.
Class will utilize tempering, One-Shot, and accompanying accessories such as the mold charger, Vibra,
and cooling tunnels. As part of the class you will also explore the different mold options available and
how they interact with the machine. Chef Grzelczyk will discuss the science and technology behind
Valrhona chocolates and ingredients used, so you can understand how to balance recipes and improve
the texture, taste and preservation of your bonbons and confections.
Join us for this unique opportunity to get hands-on experience working with the innovative One-Shot
system. Learn all the exclusive functions, and how to properly take care of your investment from the
experts at Tomric and Valrhona.
Class price includes light breakfast and coffee in the morning, lunch each day, a class recipe book, apron, pen, a gift bag, diploma, as well as all materials, ingredients, and equipment needed for class.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic classes no longer include a class dinner.
