Here are the first two of the chocolates that I tried.
Yves Thuries' macarons are not the "cookies" that I have come to love, but actually chocolate molded to look like macarons. Inside each were different fillings.
Dark chocolate had a dark caramel ganache praline. Milk chocolate had a nougatine (hazelnut) cream and White had a Montelimar nougat cream. They were all delicious but the dark's filling was surprisingly too sweet for me.
It is the first time for his chocolates to be featured at the Salon du Chocolat in Japan, so I was glad to be able to try them.
Bernachon's palet d'or were simple and delicious. Dark chocolate, cream and gold leaf. Each had hints of fruits, nuts and caramel.
He has been in Salon du Chocolat Japan for sometime now and his chocolates are really pricey, so I was glad to find something within my budget.
For the first two..so far so good...
