June 13

Today filled with chocolate, starting with a group trip to Planet Chocolate this morning. We learned a lot about how Brussels became the dominate source of chocolate in Europe. And also how it was made, shipped and delivered, before the actual chocolate chefs get their hands on it. Another interesting fact was that in order to work with chocolate professionally in Brussels you must attend a minimum of three years in culinary arts school. The free samples were great and a lot of the students bought gift in their shop. After that a few of us went windows shopping and I found the store I want to use in my comparison, Di. This store had more selection but rude employees. I will write more about that in my report though.
