With December around the corner, I am reflecting back to the time I visited Geneva, Switzerland in December 2014 to attend the annual festival, Escalade, a long traditional celebration of the victory of the city of Geneva over the Savoys. During that time, I had the opportunity to visit Stettler Chocolates, a boutique laboratory, where I learned how to make Geneva’s famous “chocolate pot” that are made in special honour of Escalade.

Here is a video of the making of the chocolate pots. Robert, chocolate master at Stettler Chocolates, explains and shows us how – enjoy!

And here is a photo series of my chocolate-making lesson:
 

This is what the chocolate pots look like. They are made in a variety of sizes. They are filled with marzipan shapes like vegetables.

Milk chocolate and dark chocolate. Fun fact: the Swiss invented milk chocolate.
