RAGUSA Chocolate Event

What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you hear “Switzerland”? Well, according to one of my favourite movies “Where the dreams may come” ― “Keep going that way, until you smell money or you step in chocolate”. Exactly! When I think of Switzerland, I think of its finest chocolate.

I was lucky enough to get invited to the Ragusa Chocolate Event, held in Berlin and get to know a lot about it. I also had a chance to interview the owner of Ragusa, Daniel Bloch. Did you know, by the way, that women in Quebec can live longer without a man than without chocolate? Well, it is so indeed.

The Swiss chocolate with character

RAGUSA Chocolate Event was all about the celebration of chocolate art. If you don’t live in Europe you may have never heard of Ragusa. But you’ve definitely heard of Swiss chocolate. Ragusa is a traditional family business headquartered in Courtelary in the Bernese Jura. It was founded by Camille Bloch in Bern in 1929. Today Daniel Bloch directs the fortunes of the Swiss chocolate maker in the third generation. He keeps the tradition alive and creates new taste experiences in the spirit of the company’s unconventional bent. Isn’t it amazing? I’ve always been fascinated by history and tradition bound together. And what can be better than chocolate anyway?

“What you see before you, my friend is the result of a lifetime of chocolate.” ― Katharine Hepburn

Apart from making my very first chocolate, I had a chance to talk with Daniel Bloch and get to know something new about the chocolate-making process itself. I really enjoyed it as you can really get to see the raw material and experience the process that goes into making the chocolate.

There were plenty of opportunities to taste not only all kinds of chocolate on your way around, but to learn the difference between milk, dark and blond chocolate. Yes, Ragusa was the first company in the world who invented not white but blond chocolate. It has its special unique taste and definitely worth trying.

Overall it was a treat that overwhelmed my appetite for chocolate for sure. There was something for everyone, even for the most discerning chocolate connoisseur. All I can say, I couldn’t imagine my life without a good blond bar of chocolate from Ragusa anymore!

So what chocolate character are you?

    I love chocolate and definitely can’t live without it. I haven’t heard of Ragusa and didn’t even know they invented blonde chocolate. So cool that you got to learn about the chocolate making process. I am a huge fan of dark chocolate the most. Milk chocolate is ok and I think white chocolate is way too sweet for me. In any case I would love to try some Ragusa chocolate one day. Xoxo, Christine

    • I’ve never heard of the blond chocolate either before I visited this event. And it’s not a white chocolate as it may seem. It’s not too sweet and not too bitter, it’s just perfect and my favourite at the moment, despite the fact that I adore dark chocolate, haha! 🙂

  • Hey Sweetie,

    I just watched your video – the day looked amazing! I would have been sold as soon as I heard it was a Chocolate event! Ha, ha.

    My favourite events are the ones where you learn about the process and have a few take home points & facts.

    By the way, you are such a natural on camera.

    Thanks for sharing!

    I have never heard of Ragusa Chocolate, but this is most likely because I am based in the US. Chocolate is the first thing that I think of when I think of Sweden! The Ragusa Chocolate Event sounds like something I would love to attend! Who doesn’t want to make chocolate and see the process!? My chocolate character is Milk! YUM!

    What a fun event! I definitely think of Switzerland when I think of chocolate! I have never been a huge an myself of chocolate but I will have it on the rare occasion. It does sound very delicious 🙂

  • Melbourneyum

    Fabulous babe I love chocolate I can definitely live longer without a man then without chocolate ha ha Ha .
    I’ve never heard of this brand before but that’s probably because they don’t have it in Australia or maybe they do let me know?!
    My favorite chocolate has to be dark chocolate but I wouldn’t mind trying the blonde chocolate too.

  • Wow! So delicious! I wish I could attend an event like this and learn about the chocolate making process. I consider myself a chocolate lover, especially milk one and I always love to try new options. However I have never heard about this brand, but looks like Ragusa chocolate is made with high quality ingredients.
    Thanks for sharing!

    Sign me up!!! I know my boyfriend would love ever minute of this. i personally am not a chocolate
    lover. I can eat it sometimes, but mostly I don’t eat chocolate.
    For this even though, it’s more than ok to eat some chocolate. The event looked so adorable
    and all the things you got to do was so fun. I’d love to make my own chocolate. I wouldn’t even know where to start.

    I’m definitely not a huge dark chocolate fan; I’ve always loved white chocolate. However, I am always open to trying new foods. That blond chocolate sure looks and sounds appetizing. How cool you got to make your own chocolate!
