Chocoholique with Hotel du Petit Moulin
Le Marais’s quirkiest hotel reveals the secrets of chocolate making
This spring, Hotel du Petit Moulin is revealing the art of chocolate-making, encouraging cocoa-loving guests to indulge with a new partnership with Cook’n With Class – one of Paris’ finest cooking schools. During a deeply comfortable stay in the Christian Lacroix-designed hotel, guests will enjoy a mouth-watering masterclass, creating artisanal chocolates to take home. A chocoholic’s dream…
The four-hour workshop will take guests on a sweet adventure, teaching the secrets of working with this ancient and mystifying food. Under the expert guidance of a professional chef, guests will craft their very own handmade chocolates whilst learning the essential techniques of tempering chocolate, transfer sheets, chocolate bonbon confection and how to make different flavoured fillings and ganache.
Cook’n With Class was founded in 2007 by French chef Eric Fraudeau to teach the art of French cooking, in a fun and relaxed atmosphere. Set in the heart of Montmartre, just a short hop from the hotel, the state of the art kitchens have a sleek urban design. The intimate workshops are taught in English, by a team of passionate chefs for a unique, hands-on learning experience.
Inspired by a wealth of new found knowledge and fuelled by their handmade chocolate delights, guests can spend the rest of their weekend indulging in their sweet tooth and discovering the foodie delights of Le Marais, recommended by Hotel du Petit Moulin.
With just 17 rooms and suites all brilliantly designed by Christian Lacroix, Hotel du Petit Moulin is one of the quirkiest spots to stay in Paris. Each of the 17 rooms – of all shapes and sizes in line with the 17th century quirks of the building – is individually designed, each telling a different story of Le Marais, Paris’ oldest quartier. The building was once home to Paris’ first ever boulangerie –the original shop frontage remains – and enjoys prime location amid the boutiques, galleries and restaurants of Le Marais.
Combining a deeply comfortable overnight stay with a delicious, fun culinary experience, a chocolate-filled weekend in Paris awaits…
Chocoholique stays with Hotel du Petit Moulin are from €525 based on two sharing an overnight stay on a B&B basis, with a four-hour chocolate-making class with Cook’n With Class for two. Bookable on request, subject to availability.
