Stop At: Cocoa Journey, Brussels 1000 Belgium
Taste and discover chocolate like never before!
You’ll start at the Grand Place, “the most beautiful square in Europe,” as Victor Hugo, author of the famous Les Miserables, once said. After hearing interesting facts about the beautiful Place, you’ll get right onto tasting!
You’ll first taste mouth-watering chocolate at one of Belgium’s most renowned chocolatiers, who was also the first chef to bring the macaron to Belgium. Through each degustation, you’ll be guided by a passionate chocolate expert who will explain how to taste each chocolate, and how to tell the difference between the best — and the rest.
But it doesn’t stop there! Next you’ll stroll to the beautiful Renaissance-style Galeries Royales Saint-Hubert with its luxury designer shops as well as theatres and cafes. It’s there where you’ll discover delicately exquisite chocolate from a World Pastry Champion — too good to have just one!
After the Galeries Royales Saint-Hubert, you’ll be guided to taste your next set of delicious award-winning chocolates from one of the world’s most creative chocolatiers, and with clear explanations, you’ll soon start grasping what makes each chocolatier and chocolate unique.
Throughout the tour, you’ll get to ask whatever chocolate questions you’d like, as your passionate chocolate guide has been trained as a chocolatier, and has had many years working in the chocolate sector!
To complete your mouth-watering chocolate discovery tour, you’ll amble down to the historical Sablon area, where you’ll get to taste another set of chocolate, extremely different from one another, but also extremely delicious!
By the end of the tour, your gourmet appetite should be satisfied after relishing 12 different chocolates from the best chocolatiers in Belgium and the world, as well as your intellectual curiosity, having uncovered the secrets of the bean-to-bar process... Come taste and discover for yourself!
(Please note that in August, one of the chocolatiers is closed, but you'll still be tasting 12 exceptional chocolates from amazing (and award-winning!) artisan chocolatiers in total :)
