Firefox also has great features like tabbed browsing, faster browsing, automatic updates, popup blocking, integrated search, live bookmarks, clear private data and much more.

Why are some chocolates & pralines level one courses longer than others?
We find that people attend this course for various purposes. Some people simply love consuming chocolate and would like to learn the basics to enable them to make chocolates at home or want to have a fun day at Savour making their own beautiful chocolates to take home. Other attendees may work in the culinary industry or are interested in starting a business. Therefore, we offer a range of level one courses that all cater to beginners and run for one, two, three or five days. Customise the class length to fit your calendar and requirements, but keep in mind that the more time spent under Savourís expert tutelage, the more skills, recipes, techniques and abilities you will learn.
Can I get a certificate for the classes I attend at Savour?
Yes, we can provide a certificate of participation for each class you attend. Please inform us during the class if you require a certificate.
Do I need to have experience to attend classes at Savour?
For most of our courses we do not require any prior qualifications so we can cater for beginners right through to experienced professionals. The exceptions include chocolate showpieces and chocolate showpiece techniques for which we require attendees to first complete a chocolates & pralines level one course.
Do I need to attend the chocolates and pralines courses in order?
Yes. We require attendees to complete the levels in order (eg. Level one, two, three, four) as each level builds on the skills and techniques learned from the previous level.
Are the courses hands on or are they a demonstration?
All of our courses at Savour are hands-on and consist of between 8 - 14 students. This means that there is plenty of opportunity to get involved and make all the recipes in the class (with the help of our pastry chef) rather than merely watching a demonstration.
Will I get a copy of the recipes made in the class?
Yes each attendee will receive a recipe booklet at the beginning of the class.
Do I need to bring anything with me to class?
Savour will supply an apron, utensils, refreshments and lunch for each attendee so all you need to bring is your enthusiasm and taste buds.
Is there parking close to Savour School?
Yes. Unfortunately we do not have a customer car park, but there is all day parking behind Savour School and also at the Jewell Train Station 50 metres from Savour School. See our handy map for information on getting to Savour School.
Will I be able to take home some of the goodies that I make during the course?
Yes. We professionally package a selection of all recipes that are made for our attendees to take home and enjoy.
How do I get to Savour by public transport?
It is easy to get to Savour using public transport.
