I was recently sent a preview sample of the wonderful upcoming holiday collection from La Maison du Chocolat. Their ‘A Midwinter Night’s Dream’ Collection beautifully combines the comforting warmth of chocolate with the joyful spirit of the holiday season.
With an elegant flourish and an astonishing display of savoir-faire, Nicolas Cloiseau has captured the beauty of chocolate in movement.
The midwinter night’s tale begins with the signature piece, hand-crafted in the atelier of La Maison du Chocolat, a place where dreams come to life.
A purely magical ride depicted on a clock-like mechanism with its internal workings held in place by a lacework of delicate strands of chocolate. A mendiant disk, garnished with pistachios, almonds, hazelnuts, pecans, chocolate beads and cocoa nibs, turns this gourmand gearwheel.
This signature collection from La Maison du Chocolat is definitely something to keep in mind during this holiday season.
‘A MIDWINTER NIGHT’S DREAM’: $1,150 : Artistic showpiece in limited edition, made entirely by hand.
‘THE REINDEER’: $ 42, this piece made entirely by hand is available in the boutiques on December 4th.
