Belgian chocolatiers, for the most part, still live in a bell jar yet to be shattered. This bombs down its creamy wet boulevards as if it’s still 1979, powered by fumes of the past.

Selections
Couverture: Callebaut
Manon Mokka –best shot White Chocolate; graceful swerve from expanding mousse pillow to salt, then faint lime tracer (though none exists), coffee re-foamed as cream; exceptional
Truffel Noten – hazelnut crème rolled in itself; sweet, no treacle, just nutty
Framboise – stout raspberry ganache in a Dark bed for late night imbibing
Truffe Caraibes – sugar nougat; walnut paste soaked in cane juice; huge mistake
Truffel Schilfers– hazelnut crème rolled in chocolate shaving; dairy farm
