The Chocolate Factory Darcis
Come and discover the renowned Jean-Philippe Darcis' "La Chocolaterie", a short walk from the town centre of Verviers, near the Crescend'eau shopping centre and Hotel Verviers ****.
Jean-Philippe Darcis, the ambassador of Belgian chocolate and pioneer of the macaroon in Belgium opens the doors of his chocolate factory in Verviers. Despite his many medals for pastry and chocolate making, he is constantly seeking innovations. He has been rewarded by a sting of titles and, since 2001, after winning the Belgian Chocolate International Prize, has been named as a life-long "Ambassador for Belgian Chocolate". Chocolaterie Darcis plays host to a shop, tasting room, production workshop pastry academy and Chocolate Museum. Your visit to this ambassador of Belgian chocolate with the help of an audio-guide will finish alongside the workshops where you can watch the chocolate-makers at work. The mysteries of chocolate-making will no longer be a secret for you!
The brand new museum zone will, thanks to an multi-lingual audio-guide, take you on an unforgettable journey right to the heart of chocolate, from the history of cocoa beans to the creation of a praline.
