Chantelly – the start of a family business
In 1970, Karel Peeters, together with his wife Christiane Lauwers, founded a bakery in Baasrode, Belgium. It became a rather successful bakery over the following years, one of the five top bakeries in Belgium. Peeters, as a dynamic entrepreneur, was always looking for other outlets for his creativity and he started to focus more on the production of chocolate articles and pralines.
In 1983 Peeters founded the company ‘Chantelly’. The name is derived from the names of both his daughters, Chantal and Kelly. Belgian chocolate was well known all over the world due to the high quality of the ingredients. Over time, most chocolatiers were tempted to mechanize and economise their production, allowing the chocolate products to be produced faster at a cheaper price, but with a great loss of quality. But this is not the case with Chantelly. Only the finest natural ingredients are used and all their chocolate products are handmade and remain faithful to traditional methods.
In 1992, Chantelly made their first private label products for Harrods, the most prestigious store in London.
World’s Largest Praline & the Guinness Book of Records
To celebrate their 30th anniversary, Chantelly created the largest praline in the world in the form of an eel which weighed more than 920 kg. This won the ‘Guinness Book of Records’. Why an eel? The eel and their hometown have a long-standing historical relationship.
Chantelly continues to remain creative with chocolate, producing personalized chocolate products, sugar-free pralines, dragées and many other products.
The company is still run by Karel, Christiane and also the daughters Chantal and Kelly who provide a new fresh touch. Chantal has also founded Basero Fine Coffee & Tea from their premises in Baasrode. Their blends and single origin coffees are only composed of high-quality Arabica coffee beans mainly from organic and biodynamic farms; a range that will appeal to the most demanding coffee lover and tea drinker. Their exclusive range includes wild Luwak coffee and Jacu Bird coffee.
Chantelly – Pralines
Chantelly chocolates are made only from the best Barry-Callebaut chocolate and their pralines are filled with classic fillings such as praliné, pistachio, marzipan, mocha, etc. They come in a selection of white, milk and dark chocolates in 250-gram to 1kg boxes. Prices start from €7.50 and they taste absolutely delicious!
We were particularly impressed with the range of moulds used to prepare these chocolates – opening the box we were faced with a selection of Egyptian pharaohs, four-leafed clovers, heart-shaped chocolates and adorable little mushrooms. The fillings pair perfectly with the Belgian chocolate, with delicious, smooth creamy interiors.
Chantelly – Mendiants
Their assortment of milk, white and dark chocolate discs are decorated with walnut, hazelnut, almonds, raisins and pistachio nuts. Perfect for enjoying with an afternoon cup of coffee. This is only available in a 200-gram package retailing for €6.
My children love these as they remind them of that time we visited Brussels and made our own chocolates one afternoon. Plus. they taste super!
Chantelly – Hazelnut Dragées
The best ‘Piemonte’ hazelnuts coated and coated with premium milk chocolate and dusted with cocoa powder. Perfect for every nut lover, and super tasty if you’re wanting a little chocolate nut hit during that afternoon slump. Retails for €6 for 200 grams.
Chantelly – chocolate as a health food?
The Chantelly chocolate pearls, based on actico-chocolate, is one of their exclusive creations. The pearls not only provide a unique taste experience but due to the unique preparation process, a larger number of polyphenols remain in the chocolate which has many positive health properties. They suggest enjoying 10 pearls a day as part of a varied and balanced diet. €3.75 for 90 pearls.
