Philippe Pascoët

Geveva-based chocolatier Philippe Pascoët, who is actually French and originally from Brittany, opened his chocolate shop in Paris in 2006.

Tucked away on the quiet rue Saint-Placide (6th arr.), the tiny store is brimming with delicately flavoured ganaches made with subtle infusions of saffron, coriander, orange-ginger, bergamot, lavender, or even absinthe, to name just a few.

His chocolate bars come in nearly 30 varieties, including Citron peel, Ginger, Sea Salt, Madagascar, Java 64 per cent, Papaousie 70 per cent, Trinidad Caraïbes 73 per cent…

Monsieur Pascoët also makes gorgeous macarons in flavours such as chocolate, lemon caramel and black currant, as well a decidedly decadent chocolate moelleux!
