Summer Indulgence

Just in time for the hot summer days, French chocolatier La Maison du Chocolat unveiled a special collection that echoes the flavors, aromas, and spirit of Spain’s sunny Andalusia region. “In the summer months, people are more apt to seek fruits and tastes that are lighter,” explains Nora Hovanesian Mann, director of La Maison du Chocolat in the USA. After many months of experimentation in its atelier outside Paris, the company created chocolates, she says, “infused with herbs and fruity flavors that are pertinent in the Andalusia region.” New creations include dark chocolate ganache with orange, chocolate ganache with mint tea, and dark chocolate ganache with saffron (an emblematic spice of Spain) and raspberry. Additionally, some chocolates are decorated with vibrant arabesque prints, and they are sold in specially designed bright orange boxes. Pastries and desserts have also been created that exude the flavors and textures of regions such as a chocolate mouse cake with a compote made of apricots, wildflower honey and almonds.  Available only through Labor Day, prices start at $19 for a box of 10 chocolates.
