Chocolate and Entrepreneurship Workshop

pubchocolat en netThanks to the financial support of Kakivak, Carrefour Nunavut will be able to offer chocolate making workshops in Iqaluit between the 4 and the 10 February 2013. In keeping with our practice of optimizing the visiting experts, we are able to offer these workshops to three distinct audiences, including young people aged between 10 and 18 years old, the staff of the great cuisines of the capital, and a group of chocolate lovers among Iqaluit citizens!

The chocolate maker guest will be Constance Tassé-Gagnon, a young talent from Montreal. Enthusiast and creative, she already has an impressive background. Constance studied at ITHQ, received several prizes for her pastries and participated in many important events. She has notably been the Invited Pastry Chef at the restaurant Verses in Hotel Nelligan. At the moment, Constance is involved in several exiting projects. Among others, she works at the ITHQ students’ coffee shop, does some official communications for ITHQ. and participate in several festivals year round, where she does public demonstrations and teaching. Last summer, Constance also participated in the show Les chefs!, on Radio-Canada. 

For the youngsters, these chocolate making workshops will be coupled with introduction to entrepreneurship activities. These exciting workshops will start, by age groups, on the week of January 14. They will take place in the Makkuttukkuvik Youth Center, between 3pm and 5h30pm.
