Chocolate in the city
Why do we sometimes have the urge to put our teeth into a piece of chocolate?
I was the first tourguide in Antwerpen with a Chocolate Tour, and it was a pleasure to create it.
On this tour we dive into the history of chocolate and how it found its way to our regions. You will learn everything about the precious beans which were literally a means of payment in the time of the Mayas and Aztecs. The drink made from them, a powerful medicine in 16th-century Europe, an extravagant stimulant at the courts of powerful kings and emperors, and the ideal gift to the one you love, hoping the feeling will be mutual.
You will learn how the “praline” conquered the world, the ever popular delicacy that was invented by a Belgian in 1912 and still is produced the old fashioned way. We take a look inside a few specialized chocolatiers and you will of course have the opportunity to taste some delicious Belgian chocolates.
You will also hear why chocolate is good for you. And, eating chocolate will not only make you feel better, you will also look better !!
At Mary‘s you will discover the favorite chocolates of the memebers of our Royal Family and you will learn why.
