365 WAYS TO LOVE CHOCOLATE

Chocolate is a source of intense and unprecedented pleasure. Pierre Hermé reveals all of the aspects of chocolate by emphasising the taste of cocoa. Exceptional chocolate Grand Crus express their specific notes with or without being combined with other flavours… Master in his field, here is how the pastry chef and chocolatier loves chocolate and make us enjoy it.

“I want my chocolate to come alive. It’s part of my life. With pleasure as my only guide, I modify, construct and navigate my way through. Harvest after harvest, I pursue my quest for cocoa beans of the highest quality. With each of my discoveries, my cravings evolve, bringing me each time to a new and different state of chocolate bliss.”
