Chez Christophe Chocolaterie Patisserie recently won International Chocolate Awards 2014 Gold. Chez Christophe’s chocolate shop is conveniently located in Burnaby. No rush of downtown Vancouver traffic. And a close drive for people like me that live out in the Valley. We spent an afternoon over pastries, cakes and coffee with Chez Christophe talking about Swiss milk chocolates, how to cool hands down from melting chocolates, and travel stories.

Pomme Cannelle: A soft cinnamon and gingerbread mousse with spiced apple jelly on a base of gingerbread sponge. I love this seasonal cake and simply can not get enough of it.

If you are a sucker for chocolate croissants like I am. Then, I highly recommend Chez Christophe’s Double Baked Pain au Chocolate with Hazelnut Cream. It is fluffy, flaky and moist center. The chocolate filling is like Ferrero Rocher: creamy and with some nutty bits. It definitely goes well with a strong cup of espresso Americano and makes a killing during breakfast.

Bonzon, a finalist will go on to compete in 2015 for the Canadian chocolate award amongst 5 pastry chefs.

 

If you are still wondering how to cool down your hands to prevent the chocolates from melting? Stick you hands in the freezer or touch a slab of marble. Running your hands under ice cold water is not recommend because moisture will simply smear the chocolate.
