A family affair

When you spent the Wednesdays of your childhood in your father's chocolate factory and educated your palate in good taste, something is bound to remain. Add a good ladle of envy, sharpen the talent, simmer and send! The adventure begins for Jade Génin , a former figure skater who started a career as a lawyer before throwing off her dress to let her passion for chocolate speak.

Classy chocolates

Pushing the door open, you enter a setting covered in white and enhanced with gold-coloured elements with warm reflections. More than a decoration, the signature of a fantastic universe with multiple inspirations imagined in duo by Jade and her designer friend Khaled Kolsi .

Behind the scenes, at the end of a curved hallway, chocolate alchemy comes to life in the manufacturing workshop visible from rue Danielle Casanova . In this magic lab, no more additives, preservatives, flavorings and flavor enhancers : sugar is discreet and the ingredients are natural and meticulously sourced.
