MUSÉE DU CHOCOLAT BOVETTI
Petit Futé's opinion on MUSÉE DU CHOCOLAT BOVETTI
In Terrasson, there is a real chocolate craftsman who goes to visit cocoa plantations, who is open to fair trade, it is Valter Bovetti. He has created a chocolate museum and a direct sales shop. A greenhouse in which cocoa trees grow wonderfully transports us to the tropics. In the museum, you can learn all about the history of cocoa from the Mayas to the great European courts, as well as about the manufacture of chocolate and its complete journey from the plantation to processing. In the fully glazed production workshop you can see the work of the chocolate makers and the copper turbine room where the oldest coating technique is used to make the enrobes. You will discover more than 150 different kinds of bars with different flavours, including white chocolate with raspberry chips, dark chocolate with Espelette chilli, dried fruit or milk chocolate with caramel and salt, and even chocolates for aperitifs. There is a wide range of organic fair trade chocolate, and even chocolate with no added sugar. For nearly 20 years, Bovetti has been making a spread by crushing hazelnuts with cocoa butter. The chocolate factory also makes chocolate-based beauty treatments for the cosmetics company Sothys. At the end of the visit, the children make a chocolate mould which they take home with the original mould which they can then reuse. Tasting for all.
