Jean-Paul Hevin was awarded the title of Meileur Ouvrier de France (France's top craftsman ) in 1986, having blessed with the capability of a fine palate to choose the best ingredient. He is very enthusiastic about chocolate and can craft it into a delicate, exceptional product that is displayed in his stores in France.
The B Class Macarons
Not that the macarons are inferior but the so called B Macaron Series consist of 2-colored macaron shells with 2 flavours mixed together in each of the 6 available.
If you enter any of his shops in Tokyo, you will be greeted by a dark interior that reflects a sense of modernity and perfection, combined with elegance and comfort. Certainly, the feature of the shop is the individual hand made chocolates. However, not only does he sell chocolates and macarons, he also has a series of individual entremets that all deal with chocolate.
