This year, Paris’ oldest chocolate factory A La Mère de Famille called in artist Chris Ware to design their advent calendar 2020. And behind each window hide several sweets by A La Mère de Famille. Meet in November to get it!

Every year, the oldest chocolate factory in Paris, A la Mère de Famille offers an Advent calendar shaped like the house! And for 8 years now, it combines good food and art, calling in a famous artist to draw it.

In 2017, it is Sempé that mischievously drew the advent calendar, and last year, drawer Zeina Abirached did it. This year, A La Mère de Famille has thought about illustrator Chris Ware. For the chocolate factory, the graphic novel author has created an Advent calendar 2020 like a doll house. And it’s love at first sight!

Inside the Advent Calendar 2020, we have many crafted treats of which A la Mère de Famille has the secret: caramels, pralines, marzipans and nougats will help you wait until Christmas 2020!

Available from November 1 for €39 in A La Mère de Famille stores and online in pre-order from October 16, we recommend you not to wait too long to get it as the institution’s calendar is often a victim of its own success!
