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.
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.
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!
The workshop is really interesting and gives you the opportunity to know more about chocolate (even as a Belgian citizen!). The second part of the workshop encourages you to be creative, with the help of a professional, it's really fun!
It was very intimate and enjoyable. Very easy to get to. The event took place at the meeting place — Rue Lebeau 11 — so the other address was confusing.
