Moniki's home is Schoonderzicht Farm, a historic farm in the Witzenberg mountains of Tulbagh. Moniki is open for chocolate tastings. Wine and chocolate lovers can do a special tasting paring the two. For the real chocoholic, a truffle-making workshop can be booked. Groups are welcome to do a high tea or any other gourmet treat. (Booking is essential).
The emphasis is on making handmade high quality products using only the best
raw and fresh ingredients, like butter, fresh cream, nuts and herbs and spices like lavender, rosemary, cardamom, saffron, ginger, black pepper and cinnamon.
A good chocolate distinguishes itself by its cacao percentage. Moniki uses mostly Belgian couverture chocolate that contains 70 % cacao. This is in line with the European style of making chocolate. The result is a chocolate with an intensive flavour and a lingering aftertaste. A feast for the taste buds!
