Chocolate is an aphrodiasiac. A miraculous substance which primarily consists of cacao, cacaobutter and sugar. But in spite of the small amount of ingredients it possesses the power to influence emotions. Reasons abound to go on an adventure.
The chocolate workshop was born in Het Stroomguis. Through a mixture of the right people and nightly, creative escapades, the first chocolate statues saw the light.
But what exactly is that, a chocolate workshop?
Delicious! No more, but certainly no less. But contrary to the milkybar in your kitchendrawer, these pieces, conjured up by creative imaginists, are also a joy for the eye.
A vintage videogame controler, the porcelain cat statue on your granny's chimney, a hand granade, human bodyparts, animal bodyparts, a lifesize Guadelupe with child (the Mexican appearance of Maria) and a record that despite its chocolate incarnation, actually plays on a recordplayer. These are all part of the collection, cast in silicone moulds, chocolate works of art.
The words found on many a tile 'an image says more that a thousand words' is also true for taste, meaning this short introduction will never be able to do justice to our chocolate workshop.
Sigmund Freud dedicated his life to the theory that every man suffers from chronic misfortune.
If he were alive today, and if we were to invite him in the spirit of equal sharing, after a visit to our chocolate workshop, Sigmund might just be inclined to reasses his theory.
