Tomorrow (June 5), in the celebrations of #EnvironmentDay, check out a virtual tour in the workshop of chocolate artist Patrick Roger!

Meilleur Ouvrier de France (2000), Chevalier de la Légion d'Honneur (2018), Patrick Roger is a chocolate maker, artist and sculptor known worldwide for the originality of his creations. In his Parisian workshop, he creates a world of tastes and shapes where delicate chocolate miniatures rub shoulders with his monumental bronze sculptures. In his desire to defend the living, he commits his works to pure and militant lines, and succeeds in transforming chocolate into metal in order to further honor the miracle of nature.

The tour will be broadcasted live on our Facebook page. See you there!
