Chocolate Overdose in the Cailler Chocolate Factory

Chocolate Heaven at Maison Cailler Switzerland is famous for its chocolate, so, the No. 1 thing on my To Do List while I was in Switzerland was to take a tour around a chocolate factory. The best and most famous is the Maison Cailler in Broc, the first chocolate factory in Switzerland. Cailler chocolate is not very well-known in the UK but everyone knows Nestlé, the cheaper brand of the name. To get to the factory, I caught the...

Sacher Torte in the Café Sacher, Vienna

Sacher Torte in the Café Sacher, Vienna High on my list of things to do whilst I was in Vienna was sampling the famous Sacher Torte in the original Café Sacher, in the heart of Vienna. Vienna is famous for its ‘kaffeehauses’ and perhaps Café Sacher is the most well-known of them all. The Café Sacher is situated on the ground floor of the Hotel Sacher in a grand old property in Vienna’s first district that opened in 1875....

The Chocolate House, Luxembourg

Death by Chocolate in Luxembourg City….!

It looked so warm and inviting, with its beautiful pink flower arrangements in giant silver urns that line the entry way into the shop, and there are cosy sheepskin seat covers and red...

The Art Nouveau Cafés of Prague

I love a good latte…. and I knew that when I got to Prague, I was going to find a very good coffee from the plethora of coffee shops that have sprung up in the last few years. There are hundreds of cafés (or what the Czech call “Kavarna”), virtually everywhere in Prague, and there seems to be one on every street corner.  As the City has become progressively cosmopolitan, the number of trendy cafés has risen and after...

Oh Dahling! Afternoon Tea at The Dorchester…..

Afternoon Tea at The Dorchester What could be more luxurious and decadent than Afternoon Tea in The Dorchester, the crème-de-la-crème of afternoon teas, in the heart of Mayfair?

The quirky Haga area of Gothenburg

Haga, The Old Town, Gothenburg There’s one thing I noticed on arriving in Gothenburg, and that’s the amount of coffee shops lining the streets; the Swedes are big coffee drinkers and they’ve even got a name for it: Fika.  Fika means meeting friends for a social get together for cup of coffee and of course something sweet to go with it.  Some of the nicest Fika spots are found in my favourite place in Gothenburg, the...
