Jacques Genin Chocolate

Even though I am done with marathon training [1] (well, for NYC 2014…not forever….I am hooked), I still am hungry all the time. Especially for chocolates. Specifically, French chocolates. Recommended by a friend on our recent trip to Paris [2], we stopped by Jacques Genin [3], a well known French chocolate and caramel maker in the Marais. And let me tell you, it is worth [4] the hype [5]. At first, I thought that all high-end chocolate tastes the same — good, delicious, and decadent. But once I polished off the box of Jacques Genin’s, I realized that it was HIS chocolate that was oh-s0-flipping-good. He opened up his own chocolate store / tea house in the Marais neighborhood in 2008. It is beautiful and chic — an Hermes version of chocolate.

Chocolates

Chocolate squares. I asked for 5 milk, 4 dark. An assortment of their favorite flavors. And it didn’t disappoint.
