Belgian Chocolate


I apologize for all this "food" posting, but when in Brussels, I cannot help but post about my favorite chocolate - "Cote d'Or" which melts in your mouth. This chocolate is sold in many shops as well as "Cote d'Or" shops here in Belgium. I also love the Belgian Waffles, or "Gaufrettes" which are a treat.
We visited the "Atomium" where my mother-in-law was one of the foremost and gorgeous hostesses greeting visitors at the 1958 World's Fair. My children were very proud to see their grandmother's photo as a Hostess. I will post more about that once we are back in the USA.
Leaving for Strasbourg today

The chocolate sounds de-lish. Yum. It's been a long while since I've had chocolate.

Wow, what a great story about your Mother-in-law. [P.S. Love that label, I could see a medium sized painting of it in a room].

Belgiums have the best food! My favorite restaurant here in DC is a belgium bistro that I blogged about a few months past - I'm sure you're eating fabulously!

Do post a photo of your mother-in-law if you can when you return. How neat.

Safe travels!

Everyone loves Belgian chocolate, don't they?

Robin said...

Did you bring enough chocolate for everyone? You mean we have to share this one?

I hope you will post a pic of your MIL as the lovely hostess. I love vintage photos like that.

Also, a while back you recommended a book to me, Almost French by Sarah Turnbull. I just finished it and I loved it! Thank you!
