“Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you will get…” (Forest Gump, 1994)

IsaOh so true of a box of artfully fashioned pralines by Chocolatier Pierre Ledent. Born in Belgium into a long line of Master Confectioners, Pierre has elevated the craft of designing chocolates to an art form. Each creation is so beautiful that only a jewelry box will do for packaging.

He strives to ensure a perfect balance of complimentary colors, scents, flavors, textures and even sounds in each carefully created piece. All of Ledent’s pralines are made with only the finest ingredients from around the world – no less than 70% Cacao Beans from only certified origins, spices from Polynesia, and fruits and nuts from Sicily and Spain, to name just a few.

Each piece was tasted slowly in order to truly experience the flavors that are layered like in a fine wine. As personal taste is always subjective, we all ended up with different favorites!

Although perhaps not as beautiful as the Pamela, another favorite was the Symphonie – like a musical composition it was very well balanced, with an apricot center that came as a surprise in the middle of a creamy ganache. “Oh! This takes me back to my childhood,” gasped my Belgian friend, almost misty eyed!

Even to the immature palate of my husband (who thinks a Hershey’s kiss is great) the quality of these fine confections were not lost – “Seriously, every single one of these is incredible!” He is not wrong!
