After visiting Sacre Coeur in Montmartre, I was strolling through the busy streets back to the Metro station when I was drawn to the window of a bright yellow shop called La Cure Gourmande. Little did I know that I had stumbled upon a piece of chocolate heaven in Paris.
Intrigued at first by the bright yellow storefront, I peeked inside the windows and found that I had come across an artisan chocolatier shop completely by mistake!
I decided to have a nosy inside and I’m so pleased I did as I was met by heavenly smells and the most beautiful chocolates I’d ever seen. Each chocolate was different from the one next to it, showing the handmade feel of them. I just love when my desserts and sweet temptations look just as good as they taste! It was like being a kid again – counting out my change to see how many sweets, chocolates and boxes I could purchase.
I must say the prices were also rather good for what they were! I was in Paris the first weekend of December and so it was the perfect time to find some chocolatey Christmas gifts for my friends and family back home.
The Talent Behind La Cure Gourmande
The talented experts behind La Cure Gourmande focus on 3 elements to ensure you enjoy luxury chocolates: gluttony, emotion and pleasure. Their stores are places of wonder, where gluttony is exacerbated by pleasure. They want their customers to forget their worries and simply partake in the excellence and exquisite taste of their chocolates.
The sweets, biscuits and chocolates are all designed and made in France. But what really sets them apart is that their boxes and tins are designed exclusively by their own in-house artists and designers.
Where To Find A Piece Of Chocolate Heaven
La Cure Gourmande can be found throughout France and some other countries like Austria and Canada among others.
8 Rue de Steinkerque
If I ever find myself back in Paris again, I will most certainly go back to this chocolate shop and drag along whoever I happen to be travelling with at the time.
