The Legend

The Chocolate Maker

Real cocoa olive oil soap

-

At the peak of his heartache, a man discovered the euphoric properties of chocolate. The happy hormone secreted by the cocoa bean can return spark to the pure of heart and soul, an apt description of the French Chocolate Maker, Christophe Dorville.

After this experience, he travelled the globe in search the noblest of cocoa beans, determined to become the world’s leading chocolatier. With this craft, he could maintain his state of euphoria, not to mention eat his fill of chocolate every day of his life.

As a master chocolatier, his daily routine was simple. The moment he rose, he would wash down two chocolate croissants with hot chocolate. He would lunch on chocolate soup, snack on truffles and dine on a light chocolate mousse. He worked as late as he could, into the darkest night.

Once he had finished making his truffles, ganache, crunchy balls and macaroons, he would begin building tall pyramids of tiny, unctuous chocolates. His shop window overflowed with all of these spectacular wonders. One day, a woman with a chocolate complexion who regularly walked past his window decided to go in. She ordered his biggest pyramid of cherry-filled chocolates. The next day, to thank him for the infinite pleasure his chocolate had brought her, she gave him this chocolate soap. As soon as he smelled it, he knew he had found the love of his life! They married, had a son and named him Pod, for the fruit of the cocoa tree.
