Chocolate museums, chocolate fair, caffeine fix in Brussels and final thoughts. Conclusion – balanced diet is having chocolate in both hands.
Brussels also has two museums dedicated to chocolate – the ‘petite’ one near Grand Place and a new place in town called Choco-Story Brussels.
First one is named Museum of Cocoa and Chocolate (surprise) and is a delight. I’ve been there twice, always in the fall during the Museum Nocturnes event, where certain museums are open until late on Thursday evenings.
To the second one, I went together with my friend Cynthia to attend a chocolaty workshop (also during the Nocturnes, different year) where the chef even wrote my name in chocolate.
That’s one way to impress a lady.
Chocolate Fair / Salon du chocolat
Last, but not least, Brussels has a well organized Chocolate festival every year in February. Should not be missed if one has the opportunity to attend.
