Follow BILL's Italian reporter Caterina on her ultimate tour in Belgium. Pack your bags and let's go to the Choco-Story museum in Brussels.
The Choco-Story museum
Right next to the Grand Place in Brussels, there is a small, old building: that's where you can find the Choco-Story museum. The exposition inside the museum is not that big, but extremely interesting.
Not only do you learn about the cocoa beans by embarking on an educative trip around the world, you also fall in love with the chocolate cascades and get to taste authentic Belgian pralines. Just look at me in the video below, grabbing all the chocolate in the museum. Gnam!
"You don't know Belgian culture until you see a real Belgian praline being made right in front of you"
You start off with hearing exotic legends about cocoa from South America. Afterwards, you learn all about the many different ways of production. Your journey will finally end with a live demonstration given by the museum's kind Maitre Chocolatier. I've got to say: you don't know Belgian culture until you see a real Belgian praline being made right in front of you.
