His stunning debut as Joël Robuchon’s pastry chef at the age of 24; a long list of prizes and awards among the most extensive of his generation (including a title of Meilleur Ouvrier de France in pastries and confectionery); an early, decisive experience in the Land of the Rising Sun where he honed his sense of precision; and an innate sense of the science of flavour, using the best cacao, carefully selected throughout the world: this is how he made a great name for itself!
Jean-Paul Hévin opened his first boutique in Paris in 1988. When you enter, it’s like walking into a fine jewellery shop, dazzled by the millimetre-precise chocolates, the evocative grace of truffles, the subtle colours of the assortments in the box…
And the great chocolate maker continues to make extraordinary pastries, honouring every classic in French cuisine, especially through the art of macarons, here ranked among the very best in Paris. If you want to have a thoroughly Parisian experience, this place is not to be missed.
