Would you like to taste, work and create figures in chocolate? Then this is the right address!During 3 hours we explore the world of cacao beans, different chocolates and we make/create our own chocolate to take home and enjoy. It is possible to translate in English during the workshop (the workshops are given in Dutch). The workshop is very visible and doesn't need a lot of translation. Reservation is necessary. For the date's, look at our website. You can also come in our shop and buy some delicious handmade Belgian chocolates! You will not regret it and one's you are back home you can order a new box from our webshop.

Because one of my collegues was going to work for Jet Air, he is a pilot, I thought on a plain in chocolate and the only one who could help me out was Sjolaa.

It was a very good explanation from the beginning till the end and the workshop was basic but it's normal for beginners ;-)
