Michel Cluizel

Michel Cluizel has been making chocolates since 1948, when he began his apprenticeship in his parents’ pastry and chocolate shop in Normandy.

He is in fact one of the rare chocolate makers in the world to process cacao beans himself in his own ateliers.

Cluizel’s showroom store on rue Saint-Honoré features stunning window displays.

From platters and bowls full of truffles, chocolate-covered orange slices, milk and dark chocolate with hazelnuts, macarons, chocolate bars, ganaches, pralines and chocolate pistoles — everywhere you look, there’s chocolate in all its varieties.

Cluizel’s specialty is his line of “1er Crus de Plantation” chocolates (single-origin chocolates), whose cacao content ranges from 65 per cent to 67 per cent.

One thought on “Michel Cluizel”

  1. It tasted like a Hershey bar. A $15 Hersey bar. Next time I’ll just go to wal mart for 1/15 the price.
