OVERVIEW: If you’re serious about chocolate and want to meet a real chocolate master and see how artisan chocolate is made the old fashion way, then you can’t do better than a tour with owner and head chocolatier Monsieur Manon.  He works in the kitchen every day and will lovingly tell you about how he makes his award winning chocolates by hand.  The factory is as traditional and the chocolate recipes he follows.  Monsieur Manon is absolutely charming and a wonderful guide.  You’ll leave understanding the artistry and craftsmanship involved in making Belgian chocolates.

OVERVIEW: This informal tour is conducted by owner Monsieur Ori for small groups only.  You must call several weeks ahead to arrange a tour.
