The gianduias, the canapès, the “Lasures”, along with the “sur mesure” bars with nuts and ganaches, the lollipops, the carrès, the buds, the mouth -watering few chocolate desserts, etc…

My chocolates are crafted from the finest of chocolates and premium ingredients from the Mediterranean and The Middle East. My aim is tradition and innovation, a balanced twist, each with its own narrative of flavors. I make many of my ingredients especially to ensure that each creation gives you a unique experience like the sour cherry liqueur. I dry sour cherries, roast or caramelize almonds and pistachios. The rest of my palette of aromas and spices is selected from the rarest gardens of the world, cardamom from Asia, rosewater from Lebanon or Iran, tahini from Greece, pistachios from the island of Aegina, to name a few.
