It was two years ago that chocolatier Pierre Cluizel (son of renowned chocolatier and chocolate maker Michel Cluizel) launched his new chocolate concept store, Un Dimanche à Paris, in the historic Cour du Commerce Saint-André (6th arr.).
Today, Cluizel’s one-stop “everything chocolate” shop is busier than ever, with its chocolate store, pâtisserie, chocolate cuisine restaurant, lounge, tea room (salon de chocolat) and even chocolate and pastry classes.
Here’s a look at some of the Christmas desserts offered at Un Dimanche à Paris this year: three yummy bûches de Noël and a gorgeous Christmas wreath.
Cascade Noire combines single-origin dark chocolate from Madagascar and succulent blackberries, blueberries and black currants.
Mademoiselle Rose features chocolate and the delicate flavours of raspberry and rose.
Planètes lactées combines milk chocolate, caramel and roasted hazelnuts.
The Couronne de Noël (Christmas wreath) is made with delicious gingerbread and decorated with mendiants (fruit- and nut-covered chocolate discs), chocolate-dipped candied orange peel, fruit jellies, chocolate bonbons and crunchy florentins. (8/10 servings)
Cour du Commerce Saint-André, a partially covered passageway lined with shops, was opened in 1776. It is also home to Paris’s oldest café, Le Procope.
