We thought the Valrhona chocolate shop in Brussels was going to be the best chocolate shop but we were mistaken.
It is Pierre Marcolini. I asked at our hotel where to go and make sure they are sending us to the very best. I am a bit demanding when it comes to chocolate. Our hotel manager had no doubts where we should head, adding that when the French President comes to town, a gift from Marcolini is presented.
The photos tell the story, we bought some single origin chocolates and a bar of vanilla bean flecked marshmallow, I am a softie for the latter.
The simplicity of the single origin packaging makes sense. Pierre Marcolini knows how to pick graphic designers.
