Bruges Chocolate Festival


11-13 November 2011

Did you know that Belgium produces 172,000 tons of chocolate every year and has 2000 chocolate shops throughout the country? The Belgian tourist office calls it “food of champions, a lure for lovers, the indulgence of the rich and later, the favourite of the masses”.

The Chocolate Festival can be seen as a culmination of all this over a long weekend in medieval town of Bruges near to Ostend.

Like every year, the event is sure to attract a wide variety of chocolate artists, producers and enthusiasts and therefore promises to be a truly exciting culinary experience.
