Chocolate Art

Most women crave that delicious moment that only a piece of delectable chocolate can satisfy, and nothing delivers that satisfaction better than Jean Philippe Maury, who brings his expertise and passion to chocoholics everywhere.

Along with being the Executive Pastry Chef at the Aria Hotel in Las Vegas, Jean Philippe also has a crepe and chocolate shop in the lobby of the Bellagio. His overwhelming selection of gourmet chocolate is what really sets these venues apart. Whether it is his delish truffles with creamy amaretto, or the melt in your mouth squares of dark chocolate sprinkled with toasted pralines, the pleasure of these confections are defined by a combination of fine ingredients and  an elaborate, signature, artistic quality.

Jean Philippe’s most incredible accomplishment is the fabulous Chocolate Fountain in his café at the Bellagio.  It is a true testament to his artistic genius and I was astonished when I realized that it was not only a fabulous sculpture, but the largest working chocolate fountain in the world, as certified by the Guinness Book of World Records. When you are next in Las Vegas, it is worth checking the fountain out, but the good news is that all these delicious confections can be ordered online at www.jpchocolates.com.  Enjoy!
