This was a huge Chocolate speak and tasting which I organized for a group of 50 people in Geneva, Switzerland, Hotel Edelweiss. I made the chocolates for tasting partly myself and partly presented the best of Swiss chocolates.
And this is the story of the trip which I also guided in Geneva, Lausanne, Montreux and Chamonix. A wonderful, interested, easygoing group. Simply a pleasure to share my knowledge on Switzerland.
In the article they write: “The travelers were extremely happy to get as our guide a journalist and chocolate master Ms Kirsi Hyytiäinen. Her explanations of local life shortened up all our bus trips to different destinations and made our trip very comfortable.”
Just take contact if you wish to organize a trip to Geneva for your group, association or enterprise. I’ll take care of all the organization and you’ll get to know all the secrecies of Swiss chocolate making!
This is only one example of the Chocolate Walks I organize in Swiss cities like in Lausanne, and this one in Geneva.
I guide the tourists through the most interesting chocolatiers, explain their background and anecdotes. And of course show also the city if you wish so. And if we have time from tasting the latest creations of all these chocolate magicians.
During the last chocolate tour we saw among the other amazing places:
- Sweetzerland Chocolats
- St Peter’s Cathedral in the Old Town
- Ladurée’s new boutique
- Chocolaterie Du Rhone and its’ talented master Jean-Pascal Sérignat
Unique flavors of grand cru chocolates for Christmas. Orders until 19th December
The bottles you see above in photos are of genuine Finnish vodka, Koskenkorva, with liquorice and salty liquorice, lakritsi and salmiakki, as we say. You wonder, what to do with chocolate?!
Well, cakes of course, which you see after in photos, decorated with white chocolate. These were one of my specialities in this year’s Christmas markets.
Otherwise I’m preparing the chocolate orders to be ready for Santa Claus’s sack. And a Christmassy city tour to guide tourists in Geneva on their way to travel for skiing at Swiss Alps. What a fabulous time!
