Bring on the chocolate! This year to celebrate Winter, Le Royal Monceau – Raffles Paris is launching its very own chocolate bar by Pierre Hermé – known as “the Picasso of pastry” – who oversees all the pâtisserie at the Palace hotel on avenue Hoche.

From 13 November the deeply stylish Bar Long, designed by Philippe Starck, will be transformed into a homage to chocolate. Pierre Hermé has dreamed up new and wonderful ways of savouring this moreish delight especially for the occasion. Expect new chocolate sensations, textures and flavour combinations – every taste a divine immersion in chocolate pleasure.

The hardest part is knowing where to begin, but a steaming cup of hot chocolate is not a bad place to start. This is liquid chocolate heaven: Pierre Hermé has created four different hot chocolate drinks, each with its own original flavour:

- ORIGINEL – go back to the origins of cocoa with the flavours of pepper, grains and corn foam
- VIENNOIS – pure indulgence. A chocolate drink made with chantilly cream
- COMME AU 16ÈME SIÈCLE – warmed by the spices of South America
- WHISKY CHOCOLAT – rich with the perfumes and aromas of pure malt whisky, cocoa liqueur and whisky cream

For dessert Pierre Hermé has masterminded four totally indulgent treats which are guaranteed to put everyone in the Winter spirit.
- DÉLIRE DÉLICE INFINIMENT PRALINÉ NOISETTE – made with choux pastry, smooth hazelnut cream, caramelised hazelnuts, praline ice cream and hazelnut praline sauce
- AZUR – a journey through flavours, textures and temperatures. This special chocolate mousse is made with Grand Cru Manjari smooth cream and adorned with a chocolate shortbread biscuit, candied Kochi yuzu, thin slices of dried lime and yuzu sauce
- PLÉNITUDE MILLEFEUILLES- created from caramelized puff pastry, Grand Cru Araguani chocolate mascarpone cream, salted butter caramel and dark chocolate slivers with fleur de sel

And finally indulge in a chocolate trilogy:
- MENTHE FRAÎCHE – Grand Cru Caraibe chocolate cream and fresh mint granita
- INCA – Grand Cru Caraibe hot chocolate ganache, avocado and bananas compote
- ROUGE & NOIR – Grand Cru Manjari chocolate cream, Grand Cru Manjari, chantilly cream and crispy fruits in balsamic vinegar gelée

Le Royal Monceau – Raffles Paris ‘Bar Chocolat by Pierre Hermé Paris’ is available at Le Bar long from November 13, 2014 until March 31, 2015
3pm- 6pm Drinks start from € 14 and desserts Pastries from €21
