If you’re a smitten kitten this Valentine’s Day, Chocolaterie Bernard Callebaut (847 17th Ave S.W.) will help you show your love in the sweetest of ways. The Callebaut family began making chocolate in Belgium in 1911, but YYC’s notorious chocolate maker travelled across Canada in the ‘80s and settled happily in the mountains.
