Alana from Spokane asked

What are the creme de la creme places for chocolate?

I'm going to Brussels this summer and as a chocoholic, want to make sure I hit all the great chocolate places even if it means I have to go on a diet when I come back!  I'll also plan on driving to Ghent and Bruges if anyone has suggestions there. Which ones are extra special that I should I make sure I try? Are there any factories I can tour?

Brussels (Belgium)   Bruges (Belgium)   Ghent (Belgium)

In Brussels the area around Place Du Grand Sablon has some of the best chocolatiers, Patrick Roger and  Pierre Marcolini , also WITTAMER but this is mainly a pattissier (although delicious) and off the beaten track try  MaryZaabär and 2 more mainly patissiers Frederic Blondeel and  Yasushi Sasaki

in Ghent try  Van Hecke's Mansion and  Joost Arijs

In Bruges without question the atelier of Dominique Persoone;  Chocolate Line

Wow, thank you so much, Frieso! I am so excited for my trip and apparently my family and friends are too because they've all asked me to bring back chocolate! I can't wait to check out all these places.

My favorites are the champagne truffles by Neuhaus. :) But try them all.

omg, the name "champagne truffles" just sounds so indulgent! :)

They absolutely are. Neuhaus is very well known, but one of my local friends there in Brussels brought me there on my first trip and it's still a favorite. :) They have a nice little shop at the Grand Place as well.
