Anything is good if it's made of chocolate.

Who doesn’t love chocolate? It’s my guilty pleasure since long time. I’m lucky to have an amazing “Chocoladefabriek Brouwer” in Lelystad. I am a regular visitor there, never left it with empty handed:) They organize workshops where you can make your own chocolates - it’s really a lot of fun and the best part is that afterwards you can take your self made chocolates home. Since I’m a big chocolate lover i was very excited when i discovered two years ago that Amsterdam hosts every year a Chocolate festival. “Chocoa” is a two day’s event where everything is about chocolate. It’s rather extraordinary experience to be able to see the process how the choc bean changes into chocolate. There are many interesting lectures where you can learn a lot interesting things about how chocolate is made, and how complicated it is to get choc beans that have the best quality - you can almost compare it to production and tasting of wine. People are coming from all around the world to show their products, tell their story and of course let you taste their chocolate. Flavor combinations that you never would expect. For me it was a small paradise. I’m sure i will visit it again next year, not only to taste even more amazing flavors, but also to hear the new stories told by all the small producers who are so passionate with their work.
