Intern Premiers Truffle Collection

Hand Painted 002Interning at Hedonist Artisan Chocolates has a lot of perks, not the least of which is free chocolate. But most interns agree that the best part of the experience is the final project: creating a signature chocolate truffle collection. In August, Hedonist’s first intern collection will be revealed.

Apprentice chocolatier Carolyn Rolleston started her internship at Hedonist Artisan Chocolates in May 2008 simply because she wanted to learn more about chocolate. Her home-school curriculum encouraged the 17-year-old to explore learning opportunities in the greater community. Her initial training under chocolatier Jennifer Posey covered the basics of tasting, packing and wrapping chocolate, but she soon progressed to making ganache (the soft center of a chocolate truffle) and then more advanced chocolate molding and enrobing techniques. Her final project, appropriately titled “The Carolyn Collection,” reflects Carolyn’s personal style, favorite flavors and artistic flair.

Carolyn’s collection includes two hand painted truffles: Honey Lime and Hazelnut-Peanut, a classic rolled truffle in Lemon Dill, a milk chocolate Rosewater Saffron, and a Creamed Maple created with local maple flavors. Each truffle is a tiny, delicious and handmade work of art.
