Jean-Paul Hevin Choco Passion

Chocolat Passion by Carol GillottJean-Paul Hevin Choco Passion, watercolor, 9" x 11"
Jean-Paul Hevin Darling Jill of Mad About Macarons fame took me to master chocolatier Jean-Paul Hevin's Chocolate Bar on rue St. Honore.

Jean-Paul Hevin Only 30 desserts to choose from!
Jean-Paul Hevin We chose the choco passion - intense dark chocolate ganache + passion fruit mousse - so divine it levitated right off the table.

Jean-Paul Hevin It would be wise to study up ahead with this Assouline book on J-PH by Le Figaro food critic par excellance, Fancois Simon.

Jean-Paul HevinUtterly luscious photos + chocolate recipes in the back.

Jean-Paul Hevin After tea and dessert you will be well- armed to face the endless chocolate displays downstairs...

Jean-Paul Hevin Resistance will be so easy...

Jean-Paul Hevin Chocolate can be quite the seductress you know...

Jean-Paul Hevin Oh dear, how not to give in to temptation?

Jean-Paul Hevin BONJOUR JEAN-PAUL HEVIN CHOCOLAT PASSION!

  10. Oh gosh! I have to go here one day! I love chocolate desserts and you can't top a French chocolate dessert. They all look so luxurious! Haha, I love that your dessert plate levitated off the table!

  11. Dearest Carol,
    What a lovely surprise and thanks so much for such a wonderful afternoon. It's not the same going back without you. What an amazing painting of that chocolate heaven. I was wondering why you asked me to lift that plate up - you are so clever! Deliciously tempting post. J xo

  12. Did you see the gorgeous chocolate cigars? Its a wonderful creation that I've never seen in any other chocolate shop in paris! A bar of dark chocolate, moulded to look like a cuban cigar and then dusted with cocoa powder. It's decadently delicious and I always leave with a few boxes for very appreciative friends. A box of chocolates that even guys appreciate.

  16. I woke up thinking about chocolate. I must have been psychically aware of this post!

    Perfect, that "Hevin" is so close to "heaven"...

  17. My palette finds all these deliciously chocolaty images
    overwhelmingly appealing. So much so that I can envision subtle wet variations of Siennas, Umbers, and Ochres on my studio palette, awaiting the creation of a big chocolaty painting.
    Scrumptious!
