My New Chocolate Blog

I recently revamped my website. I turned it into a chocolate blog where I share information about chocolate recipes, reviews, and pretty much anything about chocolate. It is going to be exciting because it gives me an excuse to eat more chocolate and expand my palette as I sample chocolate from all around the world.

tʃɒklət… or should that be spelled “chocolate”?

For those who are wondering how on earth one could write three entries in a blog about Belgium and not go into detail on chocolate… Here’s what you’ve been waiting for!

Actually, Belgium rarely gets full credit for some of its best features. Take chocolate for example. Aren’t the Swiss claiming to be the best chocolate makers in the world? Or the French even? But what have they got to show for compared to the Belgians?

Grenada Chocolate goes Fair Transport!

As I am writing you from INSIDE the factory of The Grenada Chocolate Company, one of the very first tree-to-bar organic chocolate cooperatives, I am trying not to get distracted by all the chocolate smells around me - or to drift away too long looking at the mango tree and tropical forest from the open window next to me...

One of the things we always recommend to…
