Ladurée continues its quest for the ultimate indulgence with Chocolat; The Art of the Chocolatier, opening a magic portal to a dream-like world where dainty meets delicious – a universe dedicated exclusively to chocolate.
In this book, chocolate lovers will not only discover its many varieties and virtues, but also where chocolate comes from, how it’s made, and how and where to enjoy it, as well as stories of famous chocolate connoisseurs past and present.
And, since you can hardly be expected to read about chocolate without indulging yourself, you will also find a mouthwatering selection of Ladurée recipes for chocolate bonbons and other delectable pastries that you can make at home …

Julien Christophe has been in charge of the chocolate laboratory since October 2007. In charge of a team of ten people, he has been creating chocolates inspired by the seasons, including of course special creations for Valentine’s Day and Easter. He has worked at Ladurée for the past eleven years.
