Lorge Chocolatier in Bonane

We went on one of those days out today to escape from the office and to wander in the places we do not get to during the busy summer season. With no proper agenda we headed from Gougane(R584) to Glengarriff and over the Caha Pass (N71) in the direction of Kenmare. On our way down into Bonane we found the front door of Lorge Chocolatier open and we had to stop!!
Inside the door, we were greeted by Eva with samples of their creations, i got a homemade chocolate and honey taster. These are created by Benoit Lorge (and his team), award winning chef, who makes high quality chocolates for gourmet shops and high class hotels and restaurants and his own welcoming shop in Bonane, just 5 Km from Kenmare on the Glengarriff road.
Benoit also runs a number of specialist courses for aspiring chocolate makers, teaching them the finer points of preparing, handling and finishing many different types of chocolate. His most popular event is the bi-monthly children’s workshop, although sometimes his greatest critics, all the children go home delighted by what they have experienced with plenty of stories to tell.
Well worth a visit to this Chocolate Heaven with delicious homemade chocolates, loads of great gift ideas and courses on Chocolate making, Yum!!
