chocolates-el-reyA place where you learn the process from bean to bar, discover the wide variety of flavours in good cocoa and better chocolate, taste many food pairings while being guided by your favourite chocolate makers.
Tasting, enjoying and discovering new flavours with wine, coffee and craft beer at the more than 50 stands. Take a journey through the cocoa chain and learn how chocolate is being made from bean to bar. A full day programme of tastings and presentations given by experts.
In the heart of Amsterdam at Beurs van Berlage!
As an entrepreneur I’ll be there.  I’ll be giving one of the seminars and will also be part of the exhibitors list… Really looking forward to join and participate in the Chocolate Community in NL.
My stand is number 6 – Chocolates El Rey –  Venezuelan Chocolate. From bean to bar.
And my seminar is called: Venezuelan chocolate: One of the most flavourful and aromatic in the world. Take a sensory trip to this amazing land alongside Chocolates El Rey.
The seminar will be both days. Here is the program: Saturday and Sunday
It is an interesting feeling being freelance and starting up from scratch… Hope you can come and enjoy the day in the Chocolate world!
