Why does it deserve our mention? 
This family of chocolate makers was founded in 1884 and has always had a strong tradition for quality. Today Stépahne Bonnat  takes care to  ensure that the passion for quality and the utmost respect for the raw material and its origin shall not perish from the philosophy of Maison Bonnat.  Bonnat explains  to us some of the history of chocolate, in 1502 during the fourth voyage to America by Christopher Columbus  discovered Guanaja cocoa in Honduras . However it was not  until 1519 when the Spanish Hernan Cortes landed in San Juan de Ulloa, in Mexico and he tried a drink made with cocoa that the rest of the world could begin it’s love affair with chocolate and thus began the Spanish monopoly of Cocoa in the world which would last for 200 years. Later in 1847 the English company Fry and Sons, gave us the chocolate bar form, which until that time was taken in liquid form. In 1875 in Switzerland they invented milk chocolate in the city of Vevey by Daniel Peter. It is in 1884 when Felix Bonnat,  Bonnat Chocolatier creates and quickly launched the idea of ​​the first  praline chocolate bar.  The Bonnat family use Chuao chocolate from Venezuela  which in Stéphane Bonnat’s own words is the "Romanée-Conti" of cocoas. And it's true, with an exquisite taste, deep and penetrating, one that the mind long remembers.
