Robert Linxe, founder of La Maison du Chocolat, dedicated his life to chocolate. Born in the French Basque region, he learned his trade of chocolatier in Bayonne before going to Switzerland to perfect his art. A visionary, who had the courage so characteristic of entrepreneurs, to open in 1977 his first boutique, dedicated exclusively to chocolate on the prestigious Faubourg Saint-Honoré in Paris.
He selected a location for this boutique with a wine cellar, which provided ideal conditions for preserving chocolates. He also had his laboratory in the cellar for over ten years. Nicknamed the “Sorcerer of Ganache”, Robert Linxe put his stamp of nobility on chocolate as an exceptional ingredient, in particular, the ganache. A silky blend of chocolate and fresh cream is then enrobed in a fine layer of chocolate, creating associations of subtle and delicate flavours.
