Anne-Sophie and Nicolas Haag, the founders of Nicolas's Chocolates, are listed from now in the guide of the 151 better French chocolate factories. Anne-Sophie welcomes the clientele in the Amiens shop opened in 2014 while Nicolas works his creations in the laboratory of Plachy.
Winning a "silver tablet" trophee in the chocolate environment, it's like winning two stars in the Michelin guide for a head chef. "It is our Grail, the outcome of many years of work", savor Anne-Sophie and Nicolas Haag, who appears for the first time this year in the 2017 Guide of the Chocolate Crunchers Association, beside the biggest Parisian houses.
Realy an institution in the chocolate environment, it lists 151 better addresses of chocolate factory-cake store in France and those of 40 foreign houses tested by a jury of 18 members. Three of these houses are from Picardy: Nicolas's chocolates, which have a shop Faidherbe street in Amiens and of a laboratory of manufacturing in Plachy-Buyon, the chocolate maker-confectioner Delaveaux, based in Lamorlaye (Oise), which integrate both the guide for the first time - and the "Houwt d'Abbeville" chocolate factory-cake store which consolidates its name this year.
An idea with the world champion of jams
The couple distinguished itself with three of its sweetnesses already proposed in their shop. The jury, which has blind tasted them, greeted "a real know-how in the service of perfectly mastered boldnesses". Unhoped for Anne-Sophie who welcomes the clientele in the Amiens's shop. "I have hesitated for a long time before accepting our participation in this competition. I did not doubt in the quality of our products, I knew that Nicolas was ready, but after reading this guide during several years, I can tell you that sometimes, comments can be very acerbic, it is little freaking out but in the end, we had only positive returns, it's nice."
The duet made it's own way since its installation in 2008 in the small municipality of Plachy-Buyon. With the increase of activity recorded after the opening of the shop of Amiens in 2014, they had to stop the sale of chocolates to Plachy to allow Nicolas to enlarge his laboratory and to perfect its creations. Moreover, it's there that was created in August the "ruby", one of its specialities which is in fact a strawberry fruit paste with splinters of Amiens macaroons. The idea germinated after he met a few years ago Marie-Paule Defacque, world champion of jams, in the Picardy jam Festival. "We have exchanged a lot around the strawberry-macaroon jam she had invented. I cogitated a lot around this creation. A few years later, I worked in my laboratory and after many attemps, the product finally balanced itself and was produced this summer", tells Nicolas Haag. This ruby, which will be apparently one of the flagship products of the shop during Christmas and new Year holidays, takes also a part of four sweetnesses which are proposed since September in the shop with the "Terroirs de Picardie" label. "Of course we find also the macaroon of Amiens, the 'tuiles' of Amiens as well as another creation of Nicolas, the sweetnesses of the hortillons which are in fact a milky ganache with honey of hortillons supplied by the hives of Wailly and coated with dark chocolate", details Anne-Sophie.
Other satisfaction for the duet: he has signed on August a convention with the tourist office of Amiens and the Somme tourism for the implementation of an organised trip which will be proposed in the next spring on the theme "Discover the chocolate" and a sweety speciality of Amiens. Foreign tour operators are already interested. At the program of the visit: demonstration and tasting of a speciality in the shop and the history of Nicolas's chocolates. An opportunity for the duet to be known beyond its borders.
For the second consecutive year, Séverine and Vincent Liénart are organizing a fair dedicated to the apple. On Saturday, October 8th and Sunday, 9th, they will welcome the visitors who can savour many recipes made from apple, the star of autumn.

Fruits which are going to be pressed this weekend and then, be savoured. "Thanks to a fine end to the summer, the production of fruits is rather good compared to other regions", adds Vincent Liénart.
