Henriet Biarritz - Notre Spécialité

8th Jan 2014

This is one master chocolate maker.  Henriet is one of my personal favorites of all time.

Chocolatier Henriet has been in business since 1946 making the quintessential French style chocolates using truly some of the best ingredients around.  Valrhona is the chocolate couverture of choice.  I think I tried everything in the shop (I have many additional gym hours now).  I really enjoyed the Basque beret bouchee: a clever combination of dark chocolate, Basque style black pepper flavored chocolate ganache atop a thin slice of soft marzipan and all enrobed in bittersweet Grand Cru Valrhona Manjari chocolate.
