La Chocolaterie de Jean-Philippe Darcis


Travel to the heart of chocolate while meandering through the corridors of a Maya temple, get on board the caravel of Cortés and cross the oceans to Europe: you will arrive in an 18th century

bourgeois salon before immersing yourself in the ambience of the first chocolate shops at the start of the 20th century.

The trail continues with a demonstration of how a chocolatier works, a description of the benefits of chocolate, and plenty of surprises ...
