AN AFTERNOON WITH BELGIAN CHOCOLATE
We spent the most wonderful afternoon yesterday, at the Belgian Ambassador’s residence. An afternoon full of Belgian chocolate with a short introduction on L'appétit fou, the world of Belgian chocolate, a tasting of quite peculiar chocolates and a workshop that led to uniquely decorated chocolates pumps.
Thank you for having us!
Over the last few months there has been an important focus on B2B and wholesale partners here at the L'appétit fou office and we have created some exciting new ventures with hotels, retailers and other brands.
The picture is from a recent collaboration with Aspinal of London. We hope everyone enjoyed their caramel chocolate heart this Valentine!

NEW DATES Belgian chocolate and beer pairing workshops
We will be organising new pairing workshops on Wednesday 1st February and Wednesday 15th March.
The concept is the same as with our first edition;
We will introduce you to plenty of surprising beer and chocolate combinations that you never even imagined possible. Think of marrying a full high-fermentation beer with a fruity white chocolate praline. Or combine a spiced but fruity beer with a delicious dark chocolate truffle, the possibilities are countless... We will select 6 of the best Belgian beers and pair each one with an assortment of two chocolates from our famous chocolate counter.
The tasting will take place at the L'appétit fou shop (4 Turnham Green Terrace, W41QP) from 18.30 to 20.00.
We can accomodate 6 persons per workshop and the price is £30 pp.
Send us an email at email@example.com to make a reservation.

CHISWICK PARK - DON'T GO BAKING MY HEART
We had a great time participating at the Friday Bake-Off event at Chiswick Park, an initiative by Enjoy Work.
As you may have noticed at the shop we have introduced a sugar free range of pralines and chocolate bars, the finest Belgian chocolate sweetened with a natural substitute. We organised a chocolate tasting where we compared our sugar free and regular pralines. We were overwhelmed with great reactions, you simply can't taste the difference. Our sugar free chocolates carry no calories from sugar so you can now enjoy Belgium's finest chocolates without any of the guilt.
Chiswick park, it was a pleasure to meet you and we hope the chocolate tasting launched you straight into the weekend!
