I had to try in the end some of his products. As you know, i’m not fond of chocolate (i don’t say no to a piece or two of chocolate, but in desserts that’s not what i prefer), so i picked the milk chocolate with salted butter caramel and a hot chocolate powder.
The chocolate was really nice, not too sweet as it’s often is with caramel. Nothing to say except that’s really good.
However, concerning the chocolate powder, i’ve several things to say. I know that his shop was elected as the best hot chocolate in Paris. Actually i wanted to drink one but the room was already full, that’s why i ended up buying the powder.
But the powder comes without any information about how to make the hot chocolate. So i made one as i could, and i was really disappointed in terms of flavor, texture. I really prefered Angelina cocoa powder which at least gives you the recipe about how to make your hot chocolate. This one i think didn’t have enough chocolate but then it was too bitter for me who’s not fond of dark chocolate.
So far, my favorite ever hot chocolate was the rich one from Café Pouchkine. And just to let you know, prices are 1,5 time more expensive here than in France.
