      Testimonials

      The workshop started off with a brief education of where chocolate comes from, followed by tasting 4 samples. They then walked us through creating 3 different types of chocolates, which we decorated ourselves and then got to take with us! Great value for the money. I highly recommend!

      Amanda, USA

      Fantastic !! Patricia first welcomed us and presented us with the different kinds of chocolates as well as their composition and preparation. It was very interesting! Elisabetha then took over and showed us how to decorate chocolate bars, beggars and finally truffles. Thanks to his demonstration, we too were able to start making our own chocolates. They are both very pleasant, educational and smiling. They are passionate and it shows !! We highly recommend !!

      Zeker een aanrader om te doen wanneer je naar Brussel gaat. Vriendelijke mensen en een erg leuke workshop!

      Shannon, Netherlands

      We had a great time during the workshop. It first start with a small introduction on the chocolat and the different kind of chocolat there is (this was even shorten a bit as my son was so exited to start the doing part). After that the fun start and you will be doing your own chocolat (3 different type of chocolate: a big bar, truffles, and flat ones). The best part is that you keep everything you are creating and can therefore taste your creation peacefully at home.

      楽しかったです!とても感じの良い店員さんにレクチャーを受けながら3種類のチョコを作りました。帰りにお店で売ってるチョコと自分が作ったのものを比較して、ショコラティエの凄さを実感しました笑

      Dai, Japan

      Great experience. The workshop started off with Patricia explaining how chocolate is made, how we get different types of it and then offered the different existing types to taste. Then Elisabetta showed how chocolate is being tempered and explained how this process is very important. She showed how to decorate a chocolate and then we started creating delicious bars, small chocolates and truffles. You can take back your creations at home and enjoy them. :) Also, after the workshop I was informed that there was a 20% discount on any kind of chocolate I would like to try from the store and it was a great opportunity for me to get some of their delicious ruby chocolate tablets. Overall, lovely. I would definitely recommend this workshop to chocolate enthusiasts.
