The Workshop

The history of chocolate and its little manufacturing secrets

The laboratory attached to our tea room is an example of what a good chocolate maker might dream of. It is the blade of our chocolate factory, an absolute domain of creativity and know-how. In this place, our master chocolatiers willingly share and develop our traditional and original recipes.
