PIERRE MA RCOLINI
Chocolate in Belgium, like wine in France and pasta in Italy, is one of those cultural stereotypes that is taken very seriously.
Brussels is packed with chocolatiers, but there is one, above all, that will change your outlook on chocolate forever: Pierre Marcolini. Every year he travels the world in a tireless search for the finest cocoa beans and then blends them to create over a hundred varieties of chocolate, some that are as delicate as vintage wines. Visit his flagship store of the same name on Place du Grand Sablon and sample pralines made with Earl Grey tea or “summer chocolates” blended with passion fruit, mango and yuzu.
