A world of pleasure, that surprised the taste buds many people who attended the conference, including members of Marjal Club Exclusive.

The workshop began at 18:30 with a didactic explanation of the cocoa tree, its origins and the influence of chocolate in different fields of culture such as film, literature, fashion. The conference ended with a chocolate tasting where the five five senses were put to the service of pleasure: a lollipop candy, chocolate mousse with Maldon salt ...
