Nothing can compare to the delicious pleasure of opening a box of chocolate, especially if it's French chocolate! Now, the world-famous French chocolatier La Maison du Chocolat captures the sophistication, delicacy, and luxury of chocolate. To celebrate its 40th anniversary, the company has interviewed 40 artists, designers, writers, journalists, actors, and gourmets about their love of chocolate. Talents as diverse as famed patissier Pierre Herme, French style icon Ines de la Fressange, and jewelry designer Sylvia Toledano share the ways in which chocolate inspires them. Through recipes, anecdotes, drawings, and photographs, La Maison du Chocolat's 40 delightful years are illustrated in a book so French, so chic, and so delicious, it's hard to resist.
