Swiss chocolate workshops

This item appears on page 57 of the March 2020 issue.

Visitors can learn the art of making chocolate in numerous workshops (each offered in English) at the headquarters of Swiss chocolatier Cailler (Rue Jules Bellet 7, Broc, Fribourg, Switzerland; phone +41 26 921 59 60).

In the 3-hour “Bean to Bar” workshop (CHF77 [near $80]), participants learn the entire process, from roasting beans to tempering the liquid chocolate, each forming their own bar. A 3-hour “Truffles” class (CHF77) works with dark, milk and white chocolate. A 1-hour “Future chocolatiers” class (CHF25) is for children age 6 to 12.
