After learning the ropes with chocolate wiz Michel Chaudun, this young chocolatier has become somewhat of a star in Paris’s Saint Germain quarters. The first things you notice in the boutique are the perfectly shaped figurines and animals (often made from moulds created by Jean-Charles Rochoux in the shop basement) and the giant eggs behind the counter, which – each Easter – tell the tale of how the shop came to be. You can even buy a man’s chocolate torso (a nod to the term ‘plaquette de chocolat’ used in French to describe a six-pack). What a shame the shop assistants are so haughty. Just look beyond their steely glares and order a heavenly ‘ganache’; or, if you’re passing by on a Saturday, try one of the chocolate bars made from fresh fruit.
