La Maison du Chocolat is based in Paris, and its chocolates are consistantly recognized as some of the best in the world. Most chocolates are dipped rather than molded, producing a very thin chocolate cover that melts perfectly with the filling in the mouth. The filling of choice at La Maison du Chocolat is the ganache (a mix of dairy cream and chocolate), here elevated to a rare perfection of taste and texture. Ganaches are subtly flavoured with a large variety of ingredients (almond, cinnamon, ginger, lemon, coffee, fennel...) that blend perfectly well with the taste of the chocolate. The couvertures used are from the famous French producer Valrhona. As often, exceptional quality comes at an exceptionnaly high price: nearly 100 Euros per kilo.

The pastries offered at La Maison are also exceptionally fine, on a par with those of the best patisseries in Paris. All have of course a powerful chocolate taste. Try for example the Bacchus (layers of chocolate cake and chocolate ganache), or the Andalousie (chocolate cake, with lemon zest cream and truffle mousse). La Maison du Chocolat has 4 other stores (52, rue Francois Premier; 8 Boulevard de la Madeleine; 19 rue de Sèvres; 89 avenue Raymond Poincaré) as well as stores in New York, London and Tokyo.

Ahhh...What memories! I was in Paris in June and made the pilgrimage to la Maison du Chocolat at its Faubourg location. The chocolates were absolutely divine - thinking about them now makes me long to return for a visit. The staff were formal but very courteous and obliging. The prices are steep but worth every cent. A calm setting in rich chocolate tones (except when a group of loud American tourists came in and, after much very audible deliberation, bought a bag of chocolate almonds which they then proceeded to pass around like a bag of peanuts, taking up half the seating area). The iced chocolate drinks and desserts are also highly recommended for the chocophile. These chocolates need to be savoured and are well worth your time - a real treat for jaded tastebuds.
