Slideshow: The Best Places to Make Your Own…

Share on: Share on Google+

When we go away, it’s always fun to try out the local cuisine. And the key to understanding food is to roll up your sleeves and participate in the process of how they’re made. This week’s Best Places for Everything slideshow shows you some of the best places in the world to make almost…everything.

From cheese to beer to chocolate to coffee to wine, The Best Places for Everything–-available now at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Indiebound and your local bookstore-–has whole chapters dedicated to the best places to taste and make your favorite foods. Today we’re sharing just a few of our favorite make-your-own opportunities. Remember to check back every Friday for a different look at some of Peter’s best places.

 1. Make Your Own Chocolate: My Chocolate, London, Brighton or Manchester UK

You have to look long and hard to find bad chocolate, but finding the right chocolate-making experience is a different story. My Chocolate has chocolate making workshops throughout the UK, but you want to opt for the workshop with partner Green & Blacks. It’s got both demonstrative and hands-on components–everything from dark chocolate truffles to chocolate ganache and milk-chocolate praline.

Best of all you get to take home a box of  handmade chocolates.
