Belgian Chocolates Are Best Enjoyed in Belgium


The chocolatiers in Belgium take their craft seriously. Like coffee and wine, the origin of the best cocoa beans is a matter of great importance to these chocolate makers. At Pierre Marcolini, you could be entering a jewelry store, so perfect and precious do their wares seem.

This is the perfect place to find a sophisticated Valentine’s Day gift for your love – Caramel Passion? Fleur d’Orange? Chocolate Orangutan?

Chocolate Orangutan? Such a cliche.

Brussels is already so beautiful. But Brussels’ old buildings, draped in a soft coat of snow? Stop it Brussels! You’re hogging the picturesqueness. Seriously. I can’t tell if this photo is from 1812, 1912, or 2012.
