Workshops

De Karina Boutique Chocolate offers various chocolate workshops for kids. Since they are closed on Saturdays, this leaves the option of Friday. I tried booking several times, but they were fully booked. Hence we did not participate in a workshop yet. However, since those attempts, we joined chocolate workshops at Galita Chocolate Farm (both at Kibbutz Degania Beit and Tzuba) and Shulman Chocolate Museum. In all cases, it was a tasty experience.

To book a workshop, you have to call them. You can find additional information on the official website.

This view of various handmade chocolates arises my appetite. Which makes my visits to the fridge more frequent 🙁

If you want to participate in one of the workshops, you should schedule it in advance (phone numbers appear on the official site).

I have tried several times, but they were fully packed.

The other day we were in the area so we made a stop at the factory shop. This is what we got:

After 10 minutes, the box was empty 🙂

The chocolate was good. But I guess if I prepared it, it would taste better (not because it would be better but because of the self-bias).

About De Karina

De Karina Chocolate Boutique Factory is situated in the pastoral scenery at the heart of the Golan Heights. The factory was established in 2006 by Karina and Gyora Chaplinski, an immigrant couple form Argentina, who came to realise their dream in the Land of Israel.

The chocolatier Karina Chaplinski, a third generation of an Argentine chocolatier family, immigrated to Israel with a vision to continue a family tradition of a hundred years of hand-made premium chocolate.

A little under a hundred years ago, after the First World War, Karina’s father fled from Europe and came to Argentina, where he continued his profession and opened a small home-based factory, which developed and grew with the years.

Karina’s father continued to develop the family business, till it blossomed into a factory that employed more than one hundred employees, but they never abandoned the handmade craftsmanship that grandfather had brought from Europe.

Since then, Karina’s dream became De Karina, and innovative and creative company, which is valued as one of the best boutique chocolate manufacturers in Israel.

Summary

If you only want to try their chocolate, you can order it online or buy it in various shops in Israel. But if you want to participate in one of their workshops, you must book places and drive to their factory at Ein Zivan.

I have not participated in one of the workshops yet, so I can not tell you how it was. But I saw that the average score of 50 reviews on TripAdvisor is 4/5.

That’s all for today and I’ll see you in future travels!

Stay Tuned!
