A year ago, chocolate-maker Laurent Moreno was opening his temple devoted to praline on rue Saint-Honoré. In his store “simply” called Le Bonheur [Happiness], praline chocolates, nougatine, coconut praline, cardamom praline have been making gourmets crazy. And for his first Christmas in Paris, the chef entertains us with a 100% praline Advent Calendar 2019.
If you haven’t heard about the chef, he’s worked at La Tour d’Argent and for Pierre Hermé during his Ladurée years. In his Le Bonheur chocolate store, he provides tasty 50-gram chocolate with recipes likely to make your taste buds happy. For instance, we can name his cardamom praline, the puff rice and ginger praline, or the cashew and dry hibiscus flower (aka roselle) praline.
In Le Bonheur Advent Calendar 2019, 24 praline chocolates expect gourmets for rather crazy discoveries: pistachios and basil, puff rice and ginger, sesame and sea salt and the “Christmas” special praline.
If we’re already drooling, know that it costs €95. Yes, it’s quite expensive but once you’ve tasted them all, you’ll get it. By the way, Laurent Moreno sells his chocolates €3.90 the piece and €78 for 18 premium chocolates, it’s hard but there are some Christmas presents we cannot deny!
We don’t know about you, but ours are already on their way and said to arrive on November 20, 2019. The hardest part is to wait until December 24 to finish the box.
