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.
A fun way to spend an afternoon in Brussels. You get a walking tour of the town with a history if Brussels and it’s chocolate shops, you get to visit some of the best shops in Brussels and taste a range of chocolates (plus some surprises) and then there the chocolate workshop. Here, you get to try chocolates made from beans from different parts of the world, get a brief overview on how chocolate is made and the you get to make your own! This was a lot of fun.
Andrea, the guide was good, nice, humor, complete. During booking online I was a little disappointed that my booking for a private Dutch guide was not honored in Dutch. But I was a little annoyed that the guide was not 'private' . Surprisingly another (nice) person joined the tour. It would have been nice if your definition of 'private guide' is the same as everywhere in the world. Andrea did a great job! Thank you Andrea.
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!
