Gilles Marchal


La Maison du Chocolat is one of the best-known high-end chocolate makers in the world. With eight shops in Paris and six in other locations (including New York), their award-winning creations are synonymous with gourmet chocolate. In this luxurious book, the brilliant chocolatier and pastry chef Gilles Marchal, head of La Maison du Chocolat, revisits the recipes that made the shop famous, and brings us a host of creative new recipes as well.
The recipes include timeless classics like chocolate eclairs, millefeuilles, and truffles; savory concoctions like raspberry-pepper ganache, chocolate tagliatelle, and a chocolate and sausage brioche; and audacious variations like red and black ganache floating in champagne, foie gras dipped in chocolate fondue, and a macaroon made with chocolate, black truffle, and pear. The finished recipes are magnificently photographed by Veronique Durruty to convey the luxury and drama of these delectable chocolate creations.
