Thomas Haas Patisserie Tour

Back in May 2013, I had the opportunity to tour the Thomas Haas Patisserie in North Vancouver with the Universität Heidelberg Vancouver alumni branch.

Inside the kitchen, we were offered the popular almond croissants and a complimentary drink of our choice. I went with their Aztec Hot Chocolate which I highly recommend!

Mr Haas then told us how he became a chocolatier and how he ended up in Vancouver from Germany.

Mr Haas shows us a plaque of his family’s long history in chocolaterie.

We were then introduced to the delicious contents on the table.

6 different flavoured chocolates

I was already going into sugar coma at this point. However, I couldn’t refuse sampling these pretty and unique chocolates:

As if we hadn’t already been spoiled enough, we even got to take home some chocolates!

Vielen Dank Herr Haas für die köstliche Tour! 🙂
