I was really happy to have got invited last evening for discovering the MOF Chocolatier Patrick Roger’s creations for Easter this year. The chef chocolatier is a master in chocolate sculptures as well as in delicious chocolate making. He started his career in a local bakery Maurice Boulay. He worked as a pastry chef in his early days and gradually switched his interest to chocolate and has devoted himself since then. In year 1994, he won the “Grand Prix International de la chocolaterie” and in 2000 he was crowned as a MOF (Meilleur Ouvrier de France) chocolatier.
Having been admiring the chef’s breathtaking work for years, it was the first time that I got to see him in person and talk to him, which was absolutely inspiring. He’s a real artist genuinely intrigued by the power of nature. His reflections on the connection between human beings and nature are transformed into artworks in different forms, be it abstract or not.
For this year’s Easter collection, the chef chocolatier has presented a series of creations inspired by this wonderful time of the year. Easter eggs, marzipan animals, chocolate sculptures that come in different sizes and shapes with a dash of humour, such as tinned sardines, hedgehogs, and chickens filled with mini chocolate fish.
