I wish I had done a chocolate tour to understand the degree of speciliaty shown by La Maison du Chocolat. I had added the visit onto the end of our self-guided tour of the Latin Quarter and Saint Germaine, and really did not have energy to spare to analyse what we were eating. But we did have enough energy to munch on our chocolates and that’s all that matters.
I got one photo of a chocolate counter before I was asked not to shoot any more photos, so the pictures below are of presents we had brought back for the family. And yes, taking those photos were a bit of a struggle, because no one wanted to give their present back once they had opened it. Who can blame them.
La Maison du Chocolat have a massive range of chocolates, truffles and ganaches and while a bit on the expensive side really are extraodinary.
For those adventurous cooks who wish to try make the chocolate truffles pictured below Smitten Kitten has the recipe.
