Is that a life-sized chocolate orangutan in the window? Oh yes it is. Not only is Patrick Roger a master chocolatier, but he is also a sculptor who uses his medium (chocolate) to convey his message. This year elephants have tickled his creative fancy, but in the past he’s tackled subjects as challenging as a 13-ft tall chocolate version of Rodin’s Balzac. No need to carry home an artwork however, you can pick up box of his extraordinary chocolates at one of his six Parisian shop (see website for locations).
