The Lindt Experience

South Africa is slowly catching on when it comes to quality chocolate, and Lindt is here to educate us!

It’s no secret that us LekerBekke prefer Lindt above almost any other chocolate brand (especially the 80% Cacao, Chilli and Orange…mmmmm!), so it was only appropriate that we attended a Lind ‘Chocolate Appreciation’ class.

The new studio at The Design Quarter in Fourways is slick and well run. We were met with great coffee and then enjoyed an evening of informative chocolate talk, tastings and even making our own truffles. Lindt is special (we can tell you that just by tasting it) but this class sheds light on the history as well as manufacturing processes of this iconic brand.

We’re not going to give too much away… It’s a really nice evening out, and believe it or not, we couldn’t finish all the chocolate they gave us to taste!

to milky sweet white chocolate to solid dark.

To die for!
