Overview

Learn how to make chocolate from an expert chef, deliciously presented in fun comics

Following Jacques Genin for a year, Franckie Alarcon hobnobbed with one of the biggest chefs of chocolate. Former chef and pastry chef for prestigious restaurants, this super-talented autodidact shares all his passion and knowledge of chocolate and his process for creating recipes. In this docu-comic, we travel with the starry-eyed author, satisfying many a craving from the chef's amazing atelier above his store, trying his hand as an assistant, all the way to the Peruvian cocoa plantations where the chef shows how he carefully chooses his beans, starting from scratch.
