When leading chocolatiers go for Foodporn delights

We were dreaming of it, they did it. Alain Ducasse, Cyril Lignac, Bernachon, Jacques Genin, Marcolini ou Edwart…  The leading chefs and chocolatiers finally decided to revisit the great treats of our childhood: Twix, Snickers, Bounty as well as Kinder Bueno… to give an aristocratic touch to junk-food addictions with haute couture praline and high-end chocolate.


B.B de Lyon, this is the most stylish collab’ of two buddies in Lyon—chocolatier Philippe Bernachon and pastry chef Sébastien Bouillet. Result: a chocolate bar filled with Bernachoc’ spread, with a salty butter caramel  and a crispy biscuit. The other one? A caramel-passion and a nutty praline feuilleté noisette bar.
