Since 2009, Marie-Helene Gantois has been selecting very best from very best chocolatiers in France and selling them in her independant shop on the bustling market street rue Mouffetard in the 5th arrondissement.

The three featured chocolatiers are Fabrice Gillotte (MOF 1990, who won this prestiguous title when he was just 26 years old), Jacques Bellanger (MOF 1982) and Johann Dubois (a young, self-taught chocolatier from Brittany.)

Besides the permanent collections, Marie invites guest chocolatiers to participate in temporary partnernships for short three-month periods.

In 2014, my favourites were the Seattle-based Chef Michael D Poole and Ecuadorian brand Pacari – the only biodynamic cocao producer in the world! So far in 2015, Marie has hosted Belgian bean-to-bar extraordinaire Benoit Nihant and chocolates made from cocoa plantations in the Mekong delta of Vietnam! I personally love this address because when you step through the doorway, you are never sure what you’re going to discover, but it’s bound to be mind-blowing!!

Let me nudge you gentle in the direction of the Fondant Baulois – a delicious combination of chocolate, butter, more butter and salt which becomes a melt-in-your-mouth cake – that will surely be the cause of my early-onset diabetes.

But, really, the best-kept secret…? Marie’s hot chocolate in the winter and ice cream from La Tropicale in the summer!! Trust me. 😉

“Vintage 2017 Report” Or “How To Protect Against Frost”

It’s becoming an all-too-familiar scenario: a beautiful springtime with plenty of warm sunshine but followed by a sudden dip and freezing temperatures. A cold winter does marvels for the vineyard but once bud-burst has taken place, a cold snap can have catastrophic results. You may remember that I wrote about this already in 2016. Vintage 2016: […]
