Sapin de Noël de Patrick Roger

Patrick Roger Noël 2011 Christmas collection

Chocolatier Patrick Roger is known as much for his larger than life chocolate sculptures as for the subtle, exotic flavours of his delicious ganaches and pralines.

His windows displays are always amazing, whether giant chocolate Easter Eggs, chocolate elephants, or even a chocolate Berlin Wall.

Monsieur Roger’s line-up for the 2011 holiday season is no exception.

Always irresistibly inspired, this chocolate artist has revisited the traditional symbols of Christmas with nostalgia and playful gourmand flair.
