To close out our time in Brussels (and as a surprise to the students!) we took a chocolate making class at Zaabar Chocolates.
|Ready for some chocolate tasting!|
We learned about where coca beans are grown, how they are processed and converted to the delicious, sweet treat so many of us enjoy. Once we learned a little about how to correctly temper chocolate, we got to dig in and give it a try.
|Waiting for our chocolate history and processing lesson|
|All suited up to start making (hairnets rather than hardhats this time!)|
|The utmost concentration is required!|
|The trays are filling up!|
|Making a special spicy chocolate for the professor|
|Switching to truffles|
|Mmmmmmm, Belgian chocolate.....|
|Putting on the final touches...|
A number of students were off to start their travels Friday evening, but those of us who were still around managed to fit in a few games of bowling.
