Warm regards,

Edouard Gauthier opened his chocolate shop in Mechelen in 1964. These days Gauthier is an established name in the city and surrounding area. Everything you can see in the shop is made according to the original recipe, with respect for traditional methods and high-quality ingredients, and no preservatives. The wide range includes forty different pralines, bean to bar chocolate bars, truffles, mendiants, chocolate figures, seashells, marzipan, pâte de fruit and various types of preserve. Gauthier is one of the few chocolatiers in Belgium that still makes marzipan from raw almonds.
