Behind The Scenes At La Maison du Chocolat

[Photographs: Donny Tsang]

We here at Serious Eats are no strangers to La Maison du Chocolat and their decadent treats; our own Kathy YL Chan may have tried every chocolate they make already.

Chef Kino at La Maison was a sushi chef for 30 years, and then decided he needed a change eight years ago, because he wanted to spend his life on something other than just sushi. We spent a few hours in the kitchen while he was assembling their signature eclairs.

Check out the slideshow for a peek into the kitchen.
