Valentine’s Day is approaching and La Maison du Chocolat wants to dedicate its collection to the Parisian craze for chocolate. Located at 225 rue Saint-Honoré, it has created Ghanaian dark chocolate and fruity ganaches, spice-infused pralines, and, as its star piece, the Bouchée Coeur. A bûche in which pastry chef Nicolas Cloiseau places the heart on the horizon and contains three bites in one: 40% milk chocolate with roasted and caramelized hazelnut chips, a thin layer of dark chocolate flavored with roasted koshihikari Japanese rice ; 56% almond/hazelnut black praline with cocoa chips from Venezuela, and a line of crunchy strawberry hearts. A combination of textures, crunch, and flavors designed to excite couples.
For the collection, the maison has commissioned the illustration of the boxes to Nadia Flower, who wanted to capture many small details that represent the city of love and whose creative approach is nourished by graffiti, fashion, art, and music.
