Chefs who talk about it
the best !
Founder & CEO, Maison Amarella
“Maison Amarella SA is a Fribourg-based company specialising in the artisanal production of high-end and 100% natural macarons. We always give priority to quality but also to proximity in the selection of our ingredients. Our collaboration with Villars came naturally and we are all the more proud of it as we share the same values of excellence and innovation.”
Barista and coffee expert at Caroots
“Caroots’ concept is to re-educate the palate to the taste of fruits and vegetables. Thanks to its cold extractions, transformed into mocktails (cocktails without alcohol) the flavors are even better. On the other hand, we work with all types of hot drinks, from chai lattes to real hot chocolate. Favoring the desire to work with local actors who have, like us, a healthy ecological approach, our passion led us to collaborate with Villars to make the best hot chocolates possible.”
Chocolate mouldings made by the chocolatier Théo Lebrat
“We discovered VILLARS chocolate for Easter 2021 and we were seduced by it as much for the pastry work as for the moulding work and of course for its taste. We also discovered a company on a human scale with whom we can discuss our needs and our future creations… a collaboration that delights us since the spirit of our company is defined by these words: simplicity, innovation, proximity, pleasure, passion…”
Grain de Sucre
Number Cake by Grain de sucre
“I use Villars chocolate already for years for my small pastries at home. So when I decided to open my own pastry shop I reaches out naturally to Villars Chocolat. The chocolate is easy to work with, whether for tempering or for mousses or ganaches pastries. Moreover, it is a brand that speaks also to people who are not in the business, which is a real asset in promoting local products.”
