Wat je gaat doen

Eat and discover the best Belgian chocolate!

Do you also believe that artisanal food is the best way to discover a new culture? And that food experiences are better in small groups?

Our first part will focus on Belgian sweet food culture and on the history and traditions of our beloved hometown. You will understand Belgianness by tasting all the best artisanal treats of our small kingdom: Flemish waffles, pain d'amande, salted caramel and of course: the best traditional chocolate confectionery!

The second part will be an introduction to fine chocolate sommellerie and sensory analysis. After a chocolate and coffee pairing, you will learn about the bean-to-bar revolution and the art of tasting "Grand Cru" chocolate like fine wine. You will be offered Single Origin and experimental chocolates from very small artisans that only a true connoisseur would know where to find :-)

We will start with a high-end confectionery tasting in the area of the Royal Galleries where we’ll discover some hidden gems and old traditions.
The second part of our journey will consist of a single origin chocolate tasting: we will learn everything about the art of tasting and recognizing different Grand Cru chocolates from small artisans. Last but not least, we will reach the Sablon district and try some more experimental chocolates!

If you love chocolate, this is the tour for you! My mom, brother and I all loved this experience. It would be easy to be overwhelmed by all of the options for chocolate in Brussels, but Yasmine helped to break it down - to explain the history, the traditions, and give her expert opinion on the best chocolate in the city. This tour was not only delicious, it was a great value, we went to six chocolatiers and enjoyed a unique coffee and chocolate tasting experience. Highly recommend!

Highly recommend this tour! I joined a group of 6 other individuals and Yasmine for our tour on February 29th and enjoyed every moment of the experience. As a history nerd I especially loved how Yasmine combined historical elements into the overall story of each chocolate and shop we visited. I feel like not only did I get to discover the story behind some chocolate shops but through it a bit more about the history of Brussels as well. Absolutely loved every detail of this experience.

Deze tour heeft ons de wereld van de Belgische chocolade laten ervaren. Yasmine is een fantastische host die er met haar enthousiasme en kennis voor heeft gezorgd dat we echt iets geleerd hebben. De kleine groepen zijn fijn omdat je zo meer interactie hebt tijdens de tour. Tijdens de tour hebben we veel mogen proeven, we begonnen ons bijna chocolade sommeliers te voelen. Ik zou deze tour aan iedereen aanraden!

Jasmin gives a good overview of the different chocolate options in Brussels and what differentiates them. It was useful to taste chocolate at different price points too. Jasmin covers the history and origin of each confectionary type, and brought resources with her to help explain the history. It's a good tour for both chocolate lovers and newcomers. She clearly really loves chocolate and knows loads about how it's made and how to identify flavors.
