Paris chocolatier Jean-Charles Rochoux‘s shop on rue d’Assas (6th arr.) resembles something of a cabinet of (chocolate) curiosities, with its shelves full of chocolate animals, bas-reliefs, statuettes and other edible figurines.
In addition to the amazing array of chocolate sculptures, the shop also sells a full range of delicious ganaches, pralinés and chocolate-dipped fresh fruit pieces.
For Valentine’s Day 2013, Jean-Charles Rochoux has sculpted a striking chocolate hand and heart.
“Le cœur sur la main” features nearly a pound of chocolate in the form of a sculpted dark chocolate hand holding a brilliant red, praliné-filled chocolate heart.
This generous duo — the chocolate hand weighs 260 grams and the chocolate heart 180 grams — is available as a set or separately.
