Alain Ducasse and le chocolat is endless story…
Built from an old Renault Garage in the center of Paris, near Place de la Bastille, Alain Ducasse’s new chocolate factory was created with the willingness to get back to the roots of chocolate making : a careful, slow and patient work, craftsmanship and machines being as one.
As you venture inside, marvel at the chocolate specialties displayed like precious jewels in a glass bubble arching over a table serving as the centre piece of the boutique cum manufactory. It would be a sin NOT to pick up one. Unlike for Eve not resisting her lust for the apple the Paradise, chocolate is allowed in today’s world where its antioxidant and other healthful properties are praised by doctors and nutritionists.
By visiting La Manufacture du Chocolat Alain Ducasse, you will discover chocolate in its diversity of origins (Peru, Venezuela, Madagascar…) coming straight from the neighboring factory with a purely artisanal production process.
Ducasse’s taste for excellence, search of perfection and authenticity, back to the roots of the art that guarantees a sensual chocolaty experience.
