Together with Carol I went to the opening soirée of Jean-Paul Hévin‘s Chocolate Bar(re) in the end of last week. Located on in the heart of Marais, just next doors to the mythic Marché des Enfants Rouge you’ll find his very chic designed, by Jean Oddes and Imma Polito, bar of 25 sqm. Here you can enjoy a cup of Jean-Paul Hévin‘s famous hot chocolate, endulge yourself with his exquisite chocolates, macarons…this is chocolate heaven !

On this evening we were spoiled with different types of chocolate and their latest macaron, Pablino. Crunchy biscuit with almonds and dark chocolate filled with an extraordinary smooth ganache with pure coca from Peru with a touch of fruity and spicy notes…it was so divine I couldn’t hold myself after only one.

The highlight of this evening was not only to meet the chocolate master himself, Jean-Paul Hévin, but also to try his famous hot chocolate that I’ve heard so much about. They were preparing it right in front of us and we were proposed a cup each to have with our macarons :-)  The hot chocolate was poured into stylish rippled black paper cups…and was simply delicate ! Not sugary or heavy, very pure in its taste..and I promise, no sugarcoma effect afterwards. Hot chocolate at its best, pure and tasty.
