Recently, we had the pleasure of visiting Delavoye Chocolate Maker, and it was truly an unforgettable experience. The ambience was cozy and inviting, making it the perfect setting for an evening of indulgence.

The chocolate tasting event, bookable online on select dates, was led by none other than the owner and head chocolate maker himself, Antoine Lavoie. With his extensive knowledge and genuine enthusiasm for chocolate, Antoine guided us through the intricate sensory journey. We sampled a variety of chocolates, each showcasing unique flavours and aromas we learned to subtlety identify—or at least try to.

But it wasn’t just about indulging in decadent treats—we also gained insight into the intricate process of chocolate making, from bean to bar. Antoine shared fascinating details about sourcing the finest cacao beans, the art of roasting and grinding, and the delicate tempering process that ensures the perfect shine and snap of each chocolate bar. It was truly enlightening to learn about the dedication and craftsmanship that goes into every piece of chocolate produced at Delavoye.

In addition to the chocolate tasting, Delavoye offers an array of other delights to satisfy your sweet cravings. Their selection of baked goods, especially the brownie, is simply irresistible, all made with the same attention to quality and flavour. And the range of beverages includes hot chocolate, indulgent sipping chocolate, and even a slightly sour cacao fruit juice made from the pulp of cacao pods.
