About Us

Traditional atmosphere

The food of the Gods, Chocolate, first started being manufactured in the quaint village of Betty’s Bay along the R44, handmade with loving care by Belgian Master Chocolatier Gaspard. We need to save our planet; after all it is the only planet with chocolate. Now we are in our New Home of Duynefontein, Cape Town

Our range consist of Truffles, Pralines, Cornetto’s, Chocky Glazed Fruits, Slabs, Hot Chocolate Stixx, Slabs etc The Diabetics and diet conscious are not forgotten, Gaspard manufactures Diabetic Slabs and Truffles, the Truffles are a real treat, Truffles with a real ‘legal’ soft filling, these are fun to eat, without feeling guilty at all. It is difficult, if at all, to taste the difference. I welcome visitors to my studio to come ‘n talk, ‘n taste & buy Chocolates. Give me a call and allow yourself a bit of time, as there is so much to talk about chocolate. 

 Why did I become a Chocolatier?

Being the Chef Patron of ‘at the time, well known’ restaurant I tried my hand at making chocolates to be served with the coffee after meals. These were not the greatest, until a Chocolatier walked in for a meal and tried them. Edward Wohlmuth felt sorry for me and asked whether he could show me a few tricks, which I gratefully accepted. Edward showed me more in an hour than I had taught myself in two years. The restaurant had a table where the Chocolates were displayed and sold, quite successfully, Edward decided to spend the rest of his holiday in Betty’s Bay and has been coming back to Betty’s Bay for the following 14 years to teach me more every year and ensuring standards are being kept up. When the restaurant was sold, I continued with the chocolate making, I was then invited to the UK where I worked at a few Chocolatiers supplying Harrods and gained experience. The rest, as they say in the classics, is not quite history. ​
