Artisan du Chocolat

Artisan du Chocolat opened their first store in 2002 in Lower Sloane Street, although Gerard Coleman, artisan and founder, started at Borough Market in 2000 (with a stall that still exists today), after his training as a chocolatier in Belgium.

Pearls

The most innovative and exciting luxury chocolates can be found in Artisan du Chocolat’s boutiques, located not only in London (Notting Hill, Sloane Square, Selfridges, and Borough Market) but also in Riyadh (Saudi Arabia). All their stores display the exquisite taste and strong personality of their designer, co-founder and director, Anne Weyns, and are the perfect setting to buy, eat or drink any of the products they sell.

N°1 Caramels Pot

Choosing anything is like ‘Mission: Impossible’. Everything they make has an interesting flavour or design, which can be defined as ‘luxurious with a twist’, and they are constantly developing new products, made with impeccable craft and attention to detail, to keep their position at the forefront of development in the chocolate world.

Chapel Down Truffles Loose

Their best-seller has always been the Liquid Sea Salted Caramels, first served at Claridges under Gordon Ramsey and it is now the product Artisan du Chocolat are best known for. They are a flavour journey in one mouthful. The dark cocoa hit of the coating, the crisp dark chocolate shell encasing a liquid of indulgent caramel and finished with just a hint of grey sea salt.

Or indulge yourself with some silver white South Sea Pearls filled with the finest dark ganache, golden white South Sea Pearls filled with the finest milk ganache and dark silver Tahiti Pearls with a smooth hazelnut praline worthy of Audrey Hepburn, the iconic Breakfast at Tiffany actress, who attributed her good looks to a lifetime of eating fine chocolate. We don’t know if chocolate will make us look as good as she did, but it’s well worth a try at the Artisan du Chocolat. Certainly it’ll make us feel like we’re in heaven, tasting the food of the Gods and Goddesses!

The terrible effects of war on mental health echo down the centuries in Esmond Productions’ gender-bending version, with women playing all the roles. Post-traumatic stress disorder wreaks …
