Along with CARAQUE and GUANAJA, this 'Mariage de Grands Crus' is one of the Valrhona icons that brought the brand's products such acclaim and instantly unveiled the rare and distinct character of a great chocolate blend. Over the years, this couverture has become an industry standard loved by countless professional pastry chefs like Gabriel Paillasson (Meilleur Ouvrier de France - Best Craftsman of France Winner - and Co-Founder of the Coupe du Monde de la Pâtisserie). In the 1980s he told us, "I got my customers in Lyon hooked on Valrhona EXTRA BITTER a long time ago. They love it so much that I can't use anything else!"
