Willy Wonka in Provence

Master chocolate maker Philippe Second, who was also awarded the prestigious title of Meilleur Ouvrier de France (it means he is among the best pastry chefs in the country) may have been inspired by Roald Dahl when designing his 2011 Christmas promotional campaign.

Reiderer, a family run business founded in Aix in 1780, has hidden 1 Diamond, 8 Gold and 12 Bronze tickets in their boxes of chocolates available at the store on Cours Mirabeau in Aix and Galerie Lafayette stores. THe Diamond ticket holder will receive a diamond worth 6500€, the Gold ticket holders will receive a gold Napoleonic coin and the Bronze ticket holders will have the good fortune of taking a pastry class with the Master Chef himself.

But if you can’t make it to any of the Reiderer locations to buy what could be a winning box you can enter to win a box of fabulous chocolates by becoming a fan on Facebook.
