Celebrate with the best chocolatiers in Paris!
It’s National Chocolate Week here in the UK, and although us Brits know how to indulge in a bar or two, it’s the French who really take the biscuit when it comes to fine chocolate. To celebrate such a delicious week, I thought I’d share with you, some of the top chocolatiers in my favourite city in the world, Paris.
The next time you’re in the city of love, make sure you stop by to taste some of the most exquisite chocolate treats in the world.
Here are the best chocolatiers in Paris…..
1. Christian Constant
On 37 rue d’Assas and 135 Rue Saint-Dominique, you’ll find the handmade chocolate creations of Christian Constant. He’s adored by food critics all over the world and his most famous handiwork comes in the form of fresh cream and dark chocolate, known as the “Palet d’or”.
