A Return to Fruit and Chocolate: La Maison du Chocolat Presents the Sixth Edition of Its Duo de Ganaches

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Apr 25, 2012) - The elegant balance of ganache lies in its luxuriously smooth texture; its flavour consumes the senses. Thirty years ago, La Maison du Chocolat redefined the ganache and the art of chocolate by infusing ganache with the rich flavour of pure raspberry. La Maison du Chocolat has just unveiled the sixth Duo de Ganaches coffret, linking this now classic pairing to a modern infusion of cassis and ganache.

In this pairing, master chocolatiers Gilles Marchal and Nicolas Cloiseau of La Maison du Chocolat show two different styles in the construction of tastes, which have sustained two generations. The sixth edition of the Duo de Ganaches includes Robert Linxe's timeless raspberry Salvador, which went on to define the legendary house of chocolate, encapsulating the perfect dose of pure fruit. Marchal honors the fruit-chocolate combination with the Noir de Cassis, a dark ganache emphasizing the flavour and aroma of cassis, while enhancing the pairing with delicate floral notes.


Visionary Robert Linxe's famous Salvador is a harmonious blend of pure fruit and dark chocolate. With this ganache, he developed the art of chocolate degustation: Salvador opens with the intense flavour of dark chocolate, opens to the pure raspberry pulp, and ends with the intertwined richness of chocolate raspberry.

Noir de Cassis

Marchal and Cloiseau selected cassis, a complex, challenging fruit, for its rarity in the world of chocolate. The pulp of the Burgundy dark cassis fruit, prolonged by an infusion of cassis buds, magnifies the fruit aromas without bitterness and confers a vision resolutely different from those of other fruit ganaches. Beyond the fullness of dark chocolate's flavor, you first experience the fruit's natural intensity, which unveils the delicate floral note of cassis buds that transports the palate. With this Noir de Cassis, La Maison du Chocolat shows the brilliance with which fruit can enhance chocolate.

The Duo de Ganaches will be available for a limited time in all La Maison du Chocolat boutiques and online.
