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 4-m (13-ft) tall chocolate version of Rodin’s Balzac. He has six Parisian shops (see website for locations).
