Chocolat Foucher - chocolatier confiseur

Maison de Chocolat depuis 1819

Rue du Bac is a meandering shopping street just behind Bon Marché.  
This may be the "home" boutique for these fine chocolats, 
and it even offers a salon de thé for a quiet respite from the holiday shopping.  

I could imagine finishing the gift list with selections of chocolates 
and then settling in for a chocolat chaud for myself.

This photograph makes me feel like standing in front of a jewelry. I guess it must exist chocolate specialists, like there are sommeliers for wine. This windows asks me "Are you refined enough, to appreciate their "Bouchées d'exception"? Maybe not, because -by their meaning-, my most refined bite, is that of the day-by-day foods on table. Maybe to choose the best "flavor jewel", the most smart solution is the one coming from a five years old chocolate consultant... to taste one-by-one of each one different in the boutique!

Hope you enjoy the best week in your life... this one!
Blessings everyone! d(:-D)

Thanks for introducing me to a new word at breakfast this morning. Now, would you please pass me that divine looking bouchée? :-)

Lapin Agile said...

Looks fantastic. Will keep an eye on my mailbox!

William Kendall said...

I would be quite happy in there!

Alexa said...

Hmmm, I can imagine exactly the same scenario. If only . . .

Birdman said...

Not a big fan of tasting chocolate(I know hideous laughter commences) but do love the aroma. Make sense?

Jack said...

Rue de Bac! That is one of my favorite parts of Paris.

Randy said...

I'd shop there!

I adore chocolate, really fine chocolate, which can be found all over the world. Mr. Bird, I do not require a volume of chocolate, but just a taste or so. The aroma is truly divine!

Nice to see you M. Lapin Agile again. Revrunner, it does have a very elegant sound, n'est-ce pas?

Danar, I much like the idea of a "flavor jewel" and not to waste time and calories on anything less.

Jack, on my last two trips, I have stayed very close to this street and much enjoyed the neighborhood.

Merci to all,
