Patrick Roger France
Patrick Roger started his professional career at the age of 15 as a pastry apprentice. In 2000, when he was 33, his inventiveness and talent earned him the highest distinction in the French gastronomic world, the title of Meilleur Ouvrier de France. He was also awarded the title of best chocolate craftsman of Paris, by the Ville de Paris. As a true chocolate craftsman, Patrick Roger relies on the dexterity of his hands and the quality of the best natural ingredients. “My business is taste,” he says. “Without taste, it doesn’t work.”
Recently, Roger collaborated with Karl Lagerfeld and Magnum, the ice cream brand, to create a hotel suite entirely made of chocolate.
Today, Patrick Roger has his own chocolate boutiques in Paris.
