Great chocolate making workshop, we very much enjoyed it and can highly recommend it. Two and half hours might seem like a lot of time to dedicate from your probably busy vacation schedule, but it is definitely worth it. It was one of our highlights from our Brussels trip. The instructor, Mariah (if I remember her name correctly), was amazing and took the workshop to another level.

This workshop was so much fun! Lisa was so great!! Couldn't recommend her more. If I'm ever back in Brussels, I would do this again. Lisa made the whole thing so enjoyable and even if you struggle with the chocolate making she has great patience to help you. Thank you Lisa!!

Maria manage our workshop with energy, humor and spot on preparation. We were her very first solo workshop. Easy from city center. Thanks Maria! Memorable
