Upcoming Workshops and Pop-Ups
Chocolate Workshop with Bean and Goose
Saturday March 9th 2019 4pm to 6pm – EUR35
Bean and Goose are one of the best artisan chocolatiers in Ireland. Based at Last Tree Farm in Wexford, they make the most exciting and delicious single orgin chocolate creations and are coming to Firmount House to show you how to do the same. Not only will you be learning from one of the best chocolatiers in Ireland but you will leave laden with your own self-made truffles to enjoy.
This two hour workshop is a fantastic introduction to the art of truffle making. You will be welcomed with hot chocolate on arrival while you relax and enjoy your surroundings. Then the workshop begins and you will learn the art of ganache infusing and truffle rolling. After a demonstration, you will work in small groups to create your chosen herbal or fruit infusion. You will then combine this with single origin chocolate and Irish butter to create a rich ganache before rolling and finishing your own truffles. Afterwards feel free to rest a while in the gardens while demolishing your own delicious hand-made truffles.

From the Previous Occupants of Firmount
I used to live in Firmount in 1878 and think it’s an amazing place to relax, enjoy delicious food and take a class. I would definitely do it were I still alive.- Mrs Hugh Henry, 1878
I used to work at Firmount in 1750 when the Warburtons owned the house. It was a Georgian building then and boy could it have done with a workshop on chocolate or a good chef serving dinner like has now!- Peter O'Brien (also known as Rakib)
