Brussels is all about chocolate this weekend – another edition of Salon du Chocolat takes place in Tour & Taxis from 22 to 24 February 2019. It promises a delicious and festive programme in Brussels, featuring chocolatiers, chefs, pastry chefs and young talents who are eager to celebrate Belgian chocolate in all its forms!
