La Casa de Chocolate (The Cacao and Chocolate Museum)
This interactive museum with a shop and artisanal factory is chocolate paradise ... do you fancy a bite?
Do you like chocolate?
Let's imagine that chocolate doesn't come in bars or packaging and that we want to become master chocolatiers. There's no better place than Lima to do this, it's the birthplace of cacao with 'La Casa de Chocolate' located in the district of Miraflores which has an interactive museum, chocolate workshops and a delicatessen section all in one place for the people with the sweetest of teeth. This 'Chocomuseum' project also works in other cities in Nicaragua and Peru with the idea of letting the public see the whole process of chocolate manufacturing. From basic ideas of its cultivation, there are two-hour express workshops for turning cacao beans into little chocolate figures and provide some basic knowledge for being able to surprise others with delicious and healthy recipes with less preservatives and colourings than you would find in an industrial product. If you'd like to take an original chocolate gift back with you, there's also a café where they sell chocolate products too.
