Chocolate Demonstration

Outside the demonstration room at Choco-Story, a diploma showed that Eddy Van Belle (the museum's founder) was a member of the Confrerie des Chocolatiers de France.

We entered the demonstration room and sat in an amphiteatre-like row of seats (left) facing the modern chocolatier's kitchen.

A surprisingly svelte chocolatier demonstrated the use of silicone molds with a machine that melted chocolate.

He used the molds to create pralines in the form of Choclala, the museum's cartoon mascot.

After the short demonstration, samples were passed around for dégustation.

The friendly chocolatier took time to answer questions from visitors.

As we left the museum, we couldn't resist buying a cup of hot chocolate in the well-equipped gift shop and bookstore.

We chose dark chocolate, which was given to us as a block on a large toothpick for dipping and dissolving in a cup of hot milk.
