Fauchon, Chocolate expert

Discover our chocolate selection

CHOCOLATE CREATOR

Since its creation in 1886, FAUCHON has been offering refined chocolate collections: a feast for the eyes and the palate. From the traditional cup of hot chocolate from the end of the 19th century, to chocolate bars for children's snacks, FAUCHON has become one of the experts in tasting chocolates. At FAUCHON, it's the pleasure that matters above all!

For its exceptional chocolates, the taste expert François Daubinet, Pastry Chef responsible for the creation of sweet products, relies on the collaboration initiated in March 2010 with Pascal Caffet, to create new recipes, textures and flavors for highly sensory chocolates!

Combining the quest for excellence and know-how, Pascal Caffet, Meilleur Ouvrier de France and World Pastry Champion, is one of the talents working to develop the new vision of FAUCHON chocolate. Supported by the FAUCHON company, he is the guarantor of the choice and quality of the raw materials selected for the manufacture of the chocolates.

SEGMENTATION AND STAR PRODUCTS

Chocolate is in all its states at FAUCHON: chocolate boxes, bars, almonds or dried fruit coated with chocolate, truffles, orangettes or beggars. There is something for every taste, every delicacy, every moment: peck, taste, savor, share, everyone will find their own chocolate.
FAUCHON's approach is simple, based on the taste of the great classics. Essential, structured, frank and elegant tastes make up this new interpretation, which is based on 3 pillars:
- Exceptional ingredients: dark chocolate couverture, 70% cocoa from "Carenero Superior" Criollo beans, 100% Venezuelan origin, from the Barlovento region, and milk chocolate couverture, 40% cocoa. And still the Valencia Almond, the Piedmont Hazelnut, the Bourbon Vanilla from Madagascar, the Maragogype Coffee.
- The know-how of Meilleur Ouvrier de France: for example, the preparation of praline at Pascal Caffet's, with a manual, artisanal know-how, in small quantities, in copper basins.
- Exclusive recipes: a praline very rich in dried fruits, 65% (usually 50%), a crunchy coating that protects a melting ganache .

TASTING AND ADVICE

The 5 senses are active when tasting FAUCHON chocolates:

Sight: the color of the chocolate, its lines, its roundness, its brightness, its raw or worked aspect, its dressing or its nakedness!

Hearing: the sound of a chocolate bar being broken by hand, or a chocolate being bitten in the mouth, the silence of a melting ganache, the noise of a beggar!

Smell: a FAUCHON chocolate expert always smells a chocolate before tasting it with his taste buds! Some flavors are reflected differently in the nose and mouth.

The touch: the softness, the grain of sugar, the crunchy, the crispy, the melting, the flowing, the sparkling... or all at once.

The taste: Sweet, full-bodied, milky, bitter, salty, sweet, round? Natural, notes of red fruits, yellow fruits, woody, tangy? Dried fruits ? Tastes revealed in different stages ? Let each bite melt on the tongue and all the aromas will reveal their character!

Ideal tasting temperature: 19°C
