my main activities during my small trip to Brussels was to walk around and buy expensive chocolate and vice versa. my friends took good care of me and drove me to the best chocolaterie of Belgium and probably one of the best worldwide, a temple of haute patisserie and cocoa bins. Pierre Marcolini apart from the permenant pastry collection, presents from time to time ephemeral inspired ones, such as the current “Pastel” that you see below, a chocolates collection with fruity filling infused with lime, passion fruit, mango and yuzu (yummy). Oh and a spicy carré with tabasco. As this was not enough, i couldn’t resist buying the framboise heart-shaped bijoux, and truffles and of course macarons, that are compiting mercilessly Ladurée .
