The perfect gift! The population of Paris at the beginning of the 19th century was 500,000; by the end, it was 3.5 million. The reason? Great Parisian cafes, filled with Parisian breads and pastries, all attractively purveyed in glass-fronted boutiques along the newly-built boulevards flanking grand (and also new) Parisian parks, all the master plan of Napoleon III and his civic planner, Baron Haussmann. Original handmade boxes, exclusive to Maison Bouche. All boutiques available in both milk and dark chocolate.
