Chocolate delights… sometimes darker, sometimes lighter, sometimes bitter, sometimes sweet. You’re spoiled for choice at “Jeff de Bruges” in the pedestrian zone in Esch-sur-Alzette, pralines and chocolate wherever you look.
There is a subtle aroma of cacao in the air while the owner, Sylvie, stacks small chocolate works of art into pyramids. She lets us taste her favourite; the “Cornet bleu” (or blue horn) is not only beautiful to look at, it tastes divine with its combination of softly melting milk chocolate and crispy flakes of crêpe. Like many others, Sylvie discovered Jeff de Bruges through their popular special editions. These come out for special occasion throughout the year, including Valentine’s day, Easter, Christmas, and also as part of the autumn initiative “Chocolat d’automne”.
The famous seafood shaped chocolates are very original and produced in Belgium but not in Bruges as the name suggests. Sylvie explains to us with a sly wink that, as the name of the founder is “Jambon” (or ham), he had no other choice but to find an alternative name for his product.
