The Chocolate Experience is run by Patrick Mertens and Inge Lijnen. Patrick trained as a baker at the Bakery School in Hasselt, specialising in chocolate. In 1991 he started work as a demonstrator at Barry Callebaut. After teaching for 15 years at the Barry Callebaut College and travelling all over the world to give technical advice to chocolate makers, he is now master chocolatier at Boon. This is a total concept store with a shop selling homemade chocolates and unique chocolate showpieces. In the Coffee Lounge next door, you can enjoy a cup of coffee, tea or hot chocolate or a latte.
