Master Chocolaterie Mark Tilling

This term Penningtons welcomed the wonderful Mr Mark Tilling back to the school for another exciting workshop. Mark is the 7th Chocolatier in the world and the winner of the 2016 first series of the BBC Crème dela Crème TV programme. This time Mark and the students made a bespoke chocolate egg filled with delicious chocolates ready for Easter.  Penningtons are looking forward to other workshops by Mark later in the year, next one in September where he will be running a workshop making chocolate filled marbled and glaced bars of chocolate. In November mark will be doing a fun workshop for Christmas and again returning for Easter 2019 for more bespoke eggs and chocolate sampling !
