What you'll do
Do you also believe that artisanal food is the best way to discover a new culture? And that food experiences are better in small groups? Our first part will focus on Belgian sweet food culture and on the history and traditions of our beloved hometown. You will understand Belgianness by tasting all the best artisanal treats of our small kingdom: Flemish waffles, pain d'amande, salted caramel, langue de chat cookies and of course: the best traditional chocolate confectionery! The second part will be an introduction to fine chocolate and sensory analysis. After a chocolate and coffee pairing, you will learn about the bean-to-bar revolution and the art of tasting "Grand Cru" chocolate like fine wine. You will be offered Single Origin and experimental chocolates from very small artisans that only a true connoisseur would know where to find :-)
