With the bright colours of his décor, Christophe Roussel brings a certain modernity to the often kitsch art of chocolate-making. Novel spins on the usual product range are the order of the day here. You’ll find not only several varieties of hot chocolate to sample in store, but also ganaches inspired by Roussel’s travels (including a recent trip to the south of India) – a gimmick that gives rise to all manner of curiously spiced chocolates treats. He’s even been known to mould his chocolate into cartoon characters to mark special occasions. Be sure to try his innovative macaroons, especially the savoury ones.
