An adventure into the world of chocolate awaits you at the old Montebello train station. Chocolate makers and chefs Gaëtan Tessier and Luc Gielen will be your guides at this delicious destination. They work with textures, taste sensations, sweet and salty combinations and make astute use of Quebec grown ingredients, offering a range of high quality organic and fair-trade certified products.
Making chocolate pralines and moulded chocolates involves much more expertise than simply melting squares of chocolate. Precision, dexterity and creativity are essential in the process of making chocolates. Watch the artisans as they work and learn some of their trade secrets.
The chocolate making ÉCONOMUSÉE® is located right beside the biggest red cedar log hotel in the world, the Fairmont Le Château Montebello. The resort is renowned for the many activities offered onsite (www.fairmont.fr/Fr/Montebello).
Moreover, the chocolate making ÉCONOMUSÉE® is located in the former Montebello train station, built in 1931 with the same red cedar as the famed Fairmont Le Château Montebello. The ÉCONOMUSÉE® also houses the tourist information bureau, your gateway to planning a stay in the region (www.tourismeoutaouais.com).
