Salon du Chocolat 2015 in Paris. Yes, it’s that time again of the year when it’s cold outside and you rather sit at home drinking a cup of hot chocolate or just simply enjoy a bar of chocolate…
Tuesday evening I had been invited to the inauguration of the Salon du Chocolat 2015 in Paris and I went there quickly after work to discover and taste…chocolate ;-)
Two things I got to discover at the salon was Aoki‘s famous green waffle with a chocolate macaron, don’t just watch how they are making it, buy one and try..so yummie!! And don’t miss the stand of Une glace à Paris, there is a Japanese brand promoting their ice cream which was simply a delight..fresh quality fruits made into sorbets with no sugar added.
With 220 chocolatiers on 20 000 sqm exhibitor space you don’t want to miss this special occasion to discover special cocoa flavours, taste and learn about the trends in the chocolate sphere.

Richard Olinska in front of his giant bear all made in….chocolate, what else? ;-)
Åkessons! A must! I was obviously attracted by the Swedish lastname that is the name of this brand, the owner is after all half Swedish and half French ;-) I tried their Madagascar 100% coca..with no sugar..and all organic and fell in love…the production is in France and there is a boutique selling their chocolate bars here in Paris.
Tartines au chocolat comme quand vous étiez petit(e)! Typically French, they have chocolate on everything! here, a toast fr Poîlane with chocolate from Michel Cluizel.
Tokyo macaron Yaki, green tea waffle with a chocolate macaron Sadaharu Aoki. Parisbreakfasts have talked so warmly about this Japanese treat I couldn’t resist this time, I had to have Aoki’s Tokyo macaron. My intention was to just take a bite and then save it for my goûter at work the next day..seems I still don’t know myself yet..the macaron was gone in a few seconds.
In action, this is how the macaron filled waffles are made!
So delicious…and what a nice idea filling waffles with a macaron. And after all green tea goes so well with chocolate…
Roasted rice puffs covered with matcha…another Japanese creation…
Ganache au matcha
Mousse au chocolat anyone? Then head over to Chapon’s bar!
There you’ll also find lots of chocolate in all kinds and shapes..
I got to try the very refreshing drink made 100% by the pulp of fresh cacao bean…Mucilage
Jean-Paul Hévin…a bar of chocolate?
Macarons from Arnaud Lahrer..I was in heaven…
How adorable…yet another cute creation from a Japanese brand
