Patrick Roger, awarded Meilleur Ouvrier de France (MOF) chocolatier, is a chocolate madman well-known for his majestic chocolate sculptures and his innovative flavor combinations. I first visited his boutique back in October 2012, and have loved his creations ever since. Excellent choice whether as a treat to oneself, or a gift for a friend.

Just yesterday, my roommate received this coffret de chocolat (€36, available in different sizes) as a present, and we had such fun trying each bonbon chocolat and savoring their flavors – we probably tasted about 7 of them before we decided that a break was necessary.

In this box:

  • Amazone – the harmony of caramel and the sharpness of lime
  • Trinidad & Tobago – the fleeting flavor of creole rum
  • Zanzibar – a fusion of thyme and lemon
  • Delhi – essence of lemon and basil
  • Mistral – creamy plain caramel and flower of salt
  • Maracaibo – a subtle blend of northern cocoas
  • Tendresse – strongly roasted and caramelized Piedmont hazelnut
  • Desir – crunchy wafer on praline
  • Katamandou – the richness of jasmine blossom
  • Corsica – essence of orange rind

A lovely surprise at the bottom of the box: instead of a cardboard paper, the bottom is lined with a plaque of chocolate!
