Nothing can compare to the delicious pleasure of opening a box of chocolate, especially if it's French chocolate! A key ingredient in French life, chocolate is always part of special occasions - and enjoyed around the world, as well. Now, the world famous French chocolatier La Maison du Chocolat captures the sophistication, delicacy and luxury of chocolate in Chocolat So Chic! To celebrate its 40th anniversary, the company has interviewed 40 artists, designers, writers, journalists, actors and gourmets about their love of chocolate. Talents as diverse as famed patissier Pierre Herme, French style icon Ines de la Fressange and jewellery designer Sylvia Toledano share the ways in which chocolate inspires them. Through recipes, personal anecdotes, drawings and photographs, La Maison du Chocolat's 40 delightful years are illustrated in a book so French, so chic, and so delicious, it's hard to resist.
