Chocolatouring in Switzerland
Many people have said to me that they’d like to join me on a chocolate excursion. Switzerland is a terrific place to explore chocolate as chocolate is engrained in contemporary Swiss culture and steeped in the country’s history as well.

Thanks for your comment, Catarina. Perhaps we will one day meet up and share some Swedish chocolate together. There are some fine ones I have enjoyed — most notably Emanuel Andren. Have you tried it?

How lovely it would have been to have you on the trip, Jeannette! Perhaps on a future Chocolatour. But it’s great having you share the travels virtually on the blog and thru my book. I truly appreciate your support. Best of the season to you. 🙂
I am so excited for you that you’re taking a chocolate excursion to Switzerland next year. I can’t think of a better tour guide. I won’t be able to attend but I certainly look forward to reading about it.
