Chocolat from Alain Ducasse

Le Chocolat from Alain Ducasse in Galeries Lafayette

Ducasse’s Chocolates are available in three families: praline, truffles, and ganaches. Each has their own texture and taste.

We sampled the different chocolates while learning the narrative of how chocolate is made including the six step from bean selection to molding. Beans from a particular location or certain climatic conditions have different flavors. Chocolate bean origins and their taste aromas:
