Jacques Genin has recently opened in a stunning space in the 11th arrondissement in Paris. This legendary chocolatier only supplied leading restaurants in the past and his chocolates were not accessible by the public. Now you can go here to buy the perfect examples of his art or to enjoy a fine cup of tea at the tables at the back of the space.
The mango-passionfruit caramels are one of the favourite items in this elegant store but we prefer the dazzlingly beautiful chocolates and buy a mix to be packed in one of the elegant boxes. We love the Ganache au Chocolate Noir, the Le Bleau Tenebreaux, the Un Grain (with Sichuan pepper) and the Tiarei with Tahitian vanilla.
We are also always tempted by the chocolate eclairs and the over-the-top Paris-Brest which is filled with swirls of caramel cream.
