Blue Mountains Tourist : Spring 2010
spring 2010 19 Due to popular demand, Josophan's Fine Chocolates at Leura has scheduled another round of chocolate making workshops. Classes range from 2-hour Chocolate Truffle making sessions through to indulgent full day workshops which include a long lunch at Silk's brasserie, Leura. Small groups of participants work alongside Josophan's founder Jodie Van Der Velden to create mouthwatering treats that participants take home to delight family and friends. There are also Chocolate Appreciation Workshops where participants join the revolution and learn about quality chocolate, finishing with a tasting of 15 different chocolates from around the world. The arrival of Spring sees some newly developed chocolates at Josophan's, including fresh honeycomb made with, yes ... real honey, folded through beautiful dark, white and milk couverture chocolate. Visit www.josophans.com.au and check out the Spring newsletter. A chocolate Spring! Picture: Jodie Van Der Velden with chocolate bra crafted for the recent Arty Bra project. It was auctioned for $1,000 which went to the Blue Mountains Cancer Help program. Club President Murray Patterson confesses the 17th hole is probably his favourite -- and arguably the course's signature hole, as it's the one most visitors remember... or would like to forget. He describes it as a "true risk reward par 5". He enthuses, "Most of us play down the middle of the fairway and play our second shot short of the green to then play an iron to the green in regulation. However, for those who like a challenge, the second shot over the 40 metre pines in the corner can bring on the elusive eagle or the danger of the ever present double bogey." As per the wisdom of champion golfer Arnold Palmer: "Golf is deceptively simple and endlessly complicated."
