Optional Activity


The Chocolate Experience

Thursday 22 March 2018

Chocolate workshop

Since 1970 La Chocolatière has proudly stood at 14 Avenue de Mon-Repos in Lausanne, selling their hand made chocolates to their faithful clientele as well as passersby.

Jean-Claude Currat, the founding chocolate maker, gradually developed a reputation of creating delicious masterpieces, specializing in milk chocolate.

In 2012 the reigns were passed to a new organization whose hospitality knowledge and passion for chocolate and fine foods enabled a quick step into the driving seat, also giving the shop and laboratory a makeover.

The development of the brand La Chocolatière is taking place with a new team, supported by Mr. Currat, who has stayed on as their Senior Chocolate maker.

They thrive to uphold the high quality their customers have been accustomed to, also engaging in new partnerships to make their chocolates available further afield (www.lachocolatiere.ch).

The workshop includes an explanation on the transformation of the chocolate as well as the tasting of these diverse steps, which will be followed by the manufacturing of craft pralines. The participants will be happy to leave with their own production.
