Chocolate rebel: Le Chocolaterie de Jacques Genin

The most fashionable artisan chocolate maker in France today is Jacques Genin.  The Wall Street Journal tells his story here.  A sidebar to the article briefly describes Belgian chocolate makers Pierre Marolini, Wittamer, and Mary Chocolatier Confissur, Swiss chocolate maker Confiserie Sprüngli, and British chocolate maker Auer Chocolatier.  By the way, when chocolate arrived in France around 1615, ordinary people were not allowed to consume the "food of the gods."
