The chocolat framboise is still on the menu I'm happy to say.
Too many patisseries change their selection so often and an old favorites disappear forever but not at Hevin.
Last night was the opening of J-P Hevin's 4th shop, CHOCOLATE BAR(RE) in the upper Marais at 42 rue de Bretagne 75003, with one door opening right into the Marché des Enfants Rouge! It's 25 meters in size which makes me think I could make my 21 meter studio into a watercolor shop perhaps..?
Looking through a glass darkly chocolate. These are Hevin's classic cigars of rolled cookie and chocolate ganache. Expect a witty take on many traditional sweets like his dusty (chocolate) potatoes (pomme de terre) seen above.
All this after eating Thanksgiving dinner too. My host was disappointed I didn't eat more. Shhhh...I was saving myself.
And of course beautiful macarons in many shades of chocolate. Last night's were made with Peruvian chocolate I think...
I took Solli along for more research.
We both loved the chocolat chaud served in specially designed corrugated cups. So chic!
I've bought these tubes for the witty packaging but in no time at all the delicious contents were gone, gone, gone.
Hevin's signature colors are terrific. In a town with too many BROWN boxes of chocolates, Hevin adds an electric blue, almost Yves Klein blue, to brighten things up. Super chic.
His range of buche de Noel are enticing. This is what we would call a 'Baked Alaska' enrobed in meringue. Miam miam
This buche with the stamps (timbre) has my name on it. I've mailed out almost half the December Sketch Letters.
Here a very happy Monsieur Hevin goofing around with a milk chocolate mustache.
If you LOVE CHOCOLATE in any form Jean-Paul Hevin is a Must visit in Paris. And so chic. Don't forget to get one of his classy shopping bags by the way.
