Description

Although chocolate is a product appreciated by all, its mysteries still have to be discovered. It is to unveil what is hidden within a square of chocolate that Valrhona decided to create the "City of Chocolate". An interactive and multi-sensory discovery area. Valrhona's expertise will be available to everybody with the emphasis on entertainment, education and how to tickle taste buds, which will allow gourmets and professionals to explore, admire, listen, touch, smell and mainly taste chocolate in all its forms. A first floor has opened including a full-chocolate restaurant, a pastry laboratory to experience by yourself but also a space dedicated to craftsworkers from the chocolate sphere and to Valrhona history.
