Another chocolate post and another chocolate giveaway! You now know what I meant by saying that I’m being spoiled with chocolates!
Recently, I was invited by Nespresso to attend an event in the MIM (Music Instrument Museum) in Brussels. The event was organized to celebrate the launch of the Nespresso chocolates. A coffee company launching chocolates in Belgium, country known for the best chocolate in the world – that’s brave I thought. I wasn’t really sure what to expect but since I cannot say no to chocolate, I said yes right away! And I have no regrets!
The location was gorgeous. The MIM restaurant provides a magnificent 360° view of Brussels. It’s one of my favorite brunch locations but I’ve never been there at night and I might say it looks even more impressive. Dinner was the state of art. It started with turbot tartare with Ossetra caviar and courgette flower filled with gin and lemon mousse. Next came tomato ravioli with artichokes, mozzarella di Bufala and chanterelles followed by cannolo with goat cheese and almonds.
And then there was time for chocolate tasting and I’m not going to lie, it was a pleasant surprise! Les Chocolates are superb. I can’t find a better word. They come in 2 ranges, each with 5 different flavors. Les Grands Crus range is a selection of 100% pure origin chocolates: 3 pure chocolates from Java, Brasil and Trinidad, milk chocolate from Madagascar and white chocolate with vanilla from Tahiti. Les Variations selection has chocolates with delicious fillings including Passion Gingembre, Vinaigre de Framboise, Fusion Agrumes, Vanille Rose and Caramel Beurre Salé.
My absolute favorite is Caramel Beurre Salé. This chocolate gently breaks in your mouth and releases the salted butter caramel … heaven!!! I must have eaten 30 of those during the event. My other favorite is white chocolate with vanilla, which came quite as a surprise since I usually prefer pure and milk chocolate to white.
Now the best part! Nespresso is kind enough to offer one of you a box of 50 chocolates and you can choose yourself whether you want to receive the Les Grands Crus or Les Variations box!
