Amazing Workshop, Great Instructor

The workshop was a lot so enjoyable. Gotta meet interesting people. Agatha, our instruction is amazing and always on the rescue when we have questions. She has a lot of stories about chocolates and is the life of the workshop. Of course, the chocolates are yummy...

Good but Could be Better

I enjoyed the idea of the class but felt like we were rushed and didn't get to ask questions or have time to learn more about chocolate. I wish we had at least 3 hours. I also would have liked to have other fillings other than nuts and raisins to cut the bitterness of the dark chocolate. Peanut butter, caramel, or nougat would have been lovely. I would pay extra for these recommendations also.

Thanks for joining our workshop. We are planning on developing a longer and more advanced class, but believe me, 2.5h is the right amount of time for most people. Our staff always welcomes any question at any time during the workshop, especially during the moment we wait for the chocolate to solidify in the fridge. I am happy you had such a good time that you found the experience too short. Titch

The experience was good once we started however we had a session for 10 am and the worker just didn’t show up to work so we were standing outside for 30 min and if someone didn’t call I wonder if they would have even said anything. Also we felt rushed at the end, once we were collecting our chocolate we made the lady who was pushing them out with a ladle was rushing and broke at least 5 of the chocolates of ours which we spent 3 hours making , and that happened to the other guests as well. Overall I liked the idea but more execution on the owners of this workshops. Hopefully they aren’t always like this

Dear Shannon, thanks for joining our workshop. I admit we had an issue that day as our colleague didn't show up for work. That's an extraordinary situation and that's totally our team's fault. We made it up to you by organizing a special session later that day and giving you an extra 1kg of complimentary chocolate so you could do the workshop again at home. I am happy to to read you had a great experience overall, hope you will make chocolates again in the future at home and look forward to see you at our other experiences.

This was an excellent workshop on making chocolates. We learned about the tools and methods used to make chocolates. Our young instructor was an excellent teacher. We also used high quality chocolate and tot was delicious. We made enough to fill two boxes. When we were done, he made everyone a nice glass of hot chocolate from real chocolate and milk boy the powdered stuff. Nice use of time as we waited for our chocolates to harden in the feeder. I highly recommend this class. Wish we had time to do the waffles class.

It was a very fun experience! The teacher was great. She was straight to the point, funny and friendly. The chocolate we made came out very nicely so that was a plus. The venue was not difficult to find either. It was one of the highlights of our stay in Belgium and definitely would recommend to anyone who’s interested in making some Belgian chocolate.

Maria and Saeddiah did an excellent job at the workshop. It was fun, entertaining and delicious. It was a good size group (10) and was very hands on. The instructions were clearly stated and the hosts were helpful and personable. The price was very reasonable for the experience and the handmade Belgian chocolate

My daughter and I took the chocolate workshop. We did really enjoy it. Harry, our instructor, was super nice and funny. We made some great chocolate. The only cons are that we had 19 people in the class, which was too large for one instructor. He was running around trying to help everyone. So we also had a lot of time where we were just standing around. But overall, it was a fun experience.

Always thought of chocolate making as a far away thing, accesible only to experts. Thanks to Roxana and her joyful workshop I've been proven wrong, anyone can create beautiful and delicious pralines! :)

Highly recommended activity, the workshop is fun and well-structured, the instructor is knowledgable and created a great atmosphere with nice music while supported us to succeed in making some beautiful and delicious pralines. We only used high quality ingredients and modern equipment that also contributed to some amazing hot chocolate. I thoroughly enjoyed my time and I'd definitely consider this workshop as a must-do in Brussels!

This chocolate-making class was a highlight of our trip to Belgium, especially after going around and trying so many of the local chocolatiers. The size of the class was small, and we felt secure in the COVID protocols as well, but we also enjoyed chatting with the other people in our class. The instructions were easy enough to follow, and there were several opportunities to get creative. I only wish they had a milk chocolate version because I'm not the biggest fan of dark chocolate, but it was still better than most! I also really liked that we made hot chocolate with our leftover chocolate at the end, and they had a non-dairy milk option!
