Marcolini

Writing about web page http://www.marcolinichocolatier.com/1_1_NewYorkBoutique.htm

I admit. I am somehow a hedonist.

So I’d learn how to appreciate truffles only when 15. It still surprised me most of my friends beyound 30 still have no interests nor knowledge about chocolate. It started to struck me there might be something wrong with my childhood.

“How to be a young hedonist." Maybe I should write a book with this title. This time, of course in Belgium, there’s no way I am going to miss local and international chocolatier. I was on my way to find Wittamar, a name I know for so long from my “Chocolate Companion but never had a chance to taste anything from them. It says it situated in the Sablon area, which looks all right to get there by foot in a early evening stroll. So, I walked towards my instincts, crossed the tram tracks, and climbed up the hill full of open air cafe. Then there it is, a grand neighborhood of Sablon, full of antique shops and boutiques.

However, I saw Godiva, Neuhaus, and even met Pierre Marcolini’s summer collection for the first time. (They have Japanese opening hours written outside their window!) There’s still no trace of Wittamar. I gave up very easily, and walked in Marcolini to get truffles de jour from the snobbish sales lady. (Why French speaking people just seem to be really patronizing when they speak to English only speakers?) But the truffles are very, very good. The best truffles I ever had, dare to say. They even have a London shop! (Well, I met at least 3 different tea shops, endless chocolatier in Brussels. I know it’s a village, relatively, but I still like the size, and price! better)

  1. M店的確是很讚的巧克力店。有個自詡為巧克力達人的法國女生提到這家店時,眼睛都亮起來了。然後我就問她對於Godiva的評價,我說在台北Godiva很有名,她很不屑地說,那種爛巧克力,我對它的味道實在是沒印象,而且我也不想浪費時間去吃它。

    COMMENT:

    請問巧克力達人還提到什麼店來著?
    Marcolini 的夏季限量新款,還被平價的L同業抄襲,看來真是高級訂製時裝和H&M的區別啊。
