"Our friends are brothers that Dios forgot to give us"
The problem to be greedy There are few things that you don't like, but in the case of the Tobleroneeven non-sweet often them go crazy. This chocolate with honey, walnuts and almonds is unmistakable by its triangular prism, and a perfect combination that makes that you can never stop eating until you finish the whole bar.
Original SwitzerlandToblerone is trustmark's life. The founder of the company, Jean Tobler, marketed when he gave the company to his sons in Bern at the beginning of the 20th century. The word Toblerone on the one hand comes from the surname of the founders, Tobler, and Nougatwhich means "nougat" Italian honey and almonds. It is what gives the flavor to the chocolate bar. Since then it has rained enough, and is now internationally known, belongs Kraft, and is sold in more than 120 countries... Irresistible eh?
I'm sorry, but hablanbo of chocolates and at holiday time, always comes Belgium in the lead, and while already spoke of origin of its relationship with this captivating product in the post of the Super White chocolate CheesecakeI let myself interesting somewhere in the pipeline (which has many), and taking advantage of it is summer, that best chance to bind them and introduce you to Knokke-Heist, holiday city par excellence for the Belgians, on the coast of the North Sea, in the Flanders Eastern almost right with the border with the Netherlands and within walking distance of ZeeBruge (the port of Bruges). If you situáis Brugge or Ostend, you can locate Knokke a little higher, it separates them 17 and 34 km. respectively. Here you as I link
Knokke is a small town of about 34,000 inhabitants that multiplies in the summer since it becomes one of the destinations favorite national tourism. Historically related with spastoday has several of them that recall the retro-style of early 20th throughout its more than 12 km of coast. It is a lovely town, where the economic clout of the wealthy classes looks. There are houses and villas scattered around the coast to the interior that you will be surprised by their good taste, with targeted designs and sloping volumes, facades reminiscent of Flemish, and gardens open without protection fences and lattices of security. That envy!
While some such period as the weather permits enjoy Knokke-Heist (remember that we are in Belgium, not in Spain), when you can is fascinating. Temperatures rarely exceed the 25 degreesallowing you to feel comfortable without excessive heat. The beaches are combined with the green of the damp landscape of Northern Europe that highlights the beauty of the place. You will find luxury shops in the Centre of the city, you will visit Gofrerias in ancient villas with gardens and play areas for children who seem to playgrounds (here the children of pass it pipe), and must take advantage of to hire some bikes and make endless travels along all the coastline from its beach in a gentle and long walk or to go to stoke up you fresh in Le Pain Quotidien (here I discovered this essential bakery) and buy their famous increasing, pan au chocolat, or guns for breakfast. It is quite an experience.
Finally, after a morning of shopping along Kustlann, From Bunne Square and its surroundings (warning visa that are present almost all the luxury brands and the Flemish design you be surprised), do not forget to sit to take the aperitif of Pimm's (drink English of the summer in England, based on Geneva coppery color, fruit and lemonade soda that locals love to) some of the terraces from the famous "M'as your vu" (at the confluence of the Lippenslaan and Van Bunnenplein), i.e., the place where you feel to see and be seen. It's great!
Returning to the Toblerone, I remember when little my parents brought him us of duty-free to the return of his travels and we came back we crazy nibbling the delicious triangle, both, that it does not came home alive. What ever!
This cake I discovered investigating the possibilities that the cheesecake, one of the favorite desserts of my son, can offer and the truth is that it was all a find. I left hand and I made it great, and I thought that there would be cake for many days, but turned out so incredibly delicious that at the end of the day were not the crumbs. Ready to Cook? Let's go
