Laurent Gerbaud Chocolatier
If you stroll the city, you'll find a lot of chocolate shops, including the likes of chocolatiers like Laurent Gerbaud's. He has opened his first shop and atelier Ravenstein street 2D in the middle of the historic centre of Brussels, just in front of the Fine Arts Palace. During a prolonged stay in China, he discovers the rich realm of Asian tastes and smells and begins to coat delicious kumquats (small candied oranges) with dark chocolate: an unexpected delicacy. Back in Belgium he passionately continues to create tasty combinations : 'I do only what I like. When I am developing products, my only guide is my personal taste'. The ingredients that compose each of his creations are all selected among the best ones in their league, and each delicacy is hand-made: ' The chocolate and every ingredient we use are noble and precious: their character can be preserved only through a hand-made treatment.' The shop is a combination tea shop (delicious hot chocolate & coffee served here) but also a place where you can schedule a chocolate tasting or take a workshop on how to mold and put together those precious wafers studded with pistachio, almonds, dried fruits and more. Laurent also dips Dandoy's famous biscuits in his handmade chocolate. As his sign states, there's no additives or preservatives in his chocolate.
