Description

They go loco for cocoa, gaga for ganache, or admit they are completely addicted. Meet forty chocoholics who describe their passion with relish.

Nothing can compare to the delicious pleasure of opening a box of chocolate, especially if it’s French chocolate! Now, the world-famous French chocolatier La Maison du Chocolat captures the sophistication, delicacy, and luxury of chocolate. To celebrate its 40th anniversary, the company has interviewed forty artists, designers, writers, journalists, actors, and gourmets about their love of chocolate. Talents as diverse as famed pu00e2tissier Pierre Hermu00e9, French style icon Inu00e8s de la Fressange, founder of NARS cosmetics Franu00e7ois Nars, interior designer Sarah Lavoine, Laure Hu00e9riard-Dubreuil, founder of The Webster boutiques, and jewelry designer Sylvia Toledano share the ways in which chocolate inspires them. Through recipes, anecdotes, photographs, and drawings by award-winning illustrator Serge Bloch, La Maison du Chocolat’s forty delectable years are illustrated in a book so French, so chic, and so delicious, it’s hard to resist.
