Craft yourself over 30 Belgian chocolates in 2.5 hours
Belgian Chocolate Workshop
We run regular chocolate making workshops every day for everyone! We also organize private workshops in our venue for groups, events, team buildings etc...
Our daily workshop lasts about 2.5-hours; we make everything from scratch and no previous cooking experience is needed. Each participant makes over 30 chocolates by herself/himself of two types: mendiants & pralines. Scroll down to know more about the Classic Chocolate Workshop

Become a real Belgian chocolate maker in about 2 and a half hours!
We provide you everything you need: cookware, ingredients & recipes. With assistance from start to end you don't need any previous cooking experience to attend the chocolate workshop. Kids (min 12 years old) accompanied by at least one participating adult are welcome too.
After a short introduction, we will go through the whole process, split into teams and start tempering the chocolate!
Once each team has tempered her chocolate, each participant will start crafting her own Pralines before making chocolate Ganache (the filling) from scratch!
We will also take some time to tell you more about Chocolate, the theory behing making the best Belgian chocolates and what fair trade cocoa beans mean to us.
While Pralines are cooling in the fridge, you will learn how to craft Mendiant chocolates (crispy chocolate base with dry fruits).
Not to waste any chocolate, we will end the workshop by making real Belgian hot chocolate with the leftovers, an amazing drink that really tastes like pure liquid dark chocolate heaven!
By the end of the workshop, you will have made over 35+ handmade chocolates by yourself and we will kindly provide you a beautiful box to take them home to friends and family or to eat them during your trip! If you follow this workshop carefully, you will be able to reproduce everything you have learned from the comfort of your own kitchen! Bon Appétit.
Assistance from start to end No cooking skills required
