Chocolate Paris

Paris is home to over 300 chocolate shops, and there are fabulous treats for every taste and budget. One of my favorites is Jean-Charles Rochoux, one of an elite group of designer chocolatiers. Jean-Charles goes to the Rungis food market every Friday and selects fresh fruit for his tablette ephemere, which he sells on Saturday morning only. It could be strawberries, or mango or litchees, it all depends on what is in season. This week there were juicy, tart raspberries, covered in dark chocolate, a happy marriage of flavors and aromas. The tablettes need to be eaten within two days, however, I doubt that this will be an issue – I know it certainly isn’t for me! Stop by his cozy shop at

16, rue d’Assas, Paris 6 (Tel: +33 (0)1 42 84 29 45) on a Saturday morning for a delicious energy boost as you explore the Saint-Germain neighborhood. A MUST! Metro: Rennes (Line 12)
