Project: match the orange of this hatbox...
It took several hatboxes (filled with macarons by the way) to get the color right...
I thought it was just Frederic Cassel who was mad for orange...but there was orange everywhere I looked at the Salon du Chocolat.
Orange is a color well-loved by chocolate makers including Arnaud Larher and Henri le Roux..
Orange is the perfect backdrop for caramel au beurre sale evidently...
Doing a little color research I found out why the prevalence of orange
Orange is also stimulating to the appetite.
If you love having people around the kitchen table, orange will keep them talking and eating for a long time. Many restaurants use pastel versions of orange, such as apricot or peach or deeper versions such as terracotta, for their décor as they are more subtle than red, yet still increase the appetite and promote conversation and social interaction, which in turn encourages patrons to have a good time and to eat and drink more.
The color orange is obviously the worst color to have in the kitchen if you are trying to lose weight!
More on Orange
Enthusiasm: Orange is optimistic and extroverted - the color of the uninhibited.
Rejuvenation: Orange helps to restore balance to our physical energies.
Stimulation: Orange is not as passionate or as excitable as red, but it is stimulating, particularly to the appetite - the worst color to have in the kitchen if you want to lose weight.
Courage: Orange helps us to take account of our lives, to face the consequences, to take action and make appropriate changes, and then to move onward and upward.
Vitality: Orange has a more balanced energy than red, not as passionate and aggressive, but full of vitality
A preponderance of orange makes perfect sense since all this chocolate is made with oranges.
