  1. I got one for Valentine's day. When I told the wife I wanted a little' summin' summin 'cause I felt neglected lately, she not only produced a tiny invisible violin, she played it too.

  2. I get the impression that the act of arranging the delicious junk food into art so people feel bad about breaking it apart to eat it plays a key role in keeping the French thin.

  3. Used to watch his chocolate circus show, whatever it’s called. The moment I saw his name, the theme tune started playing in my head.

  4. Encore un qui représente bien la France 😂 If you’re interested, most of the french people celebrate Valentine’s day in a dinner at the restaurant first, and then in the bed of course 😂

  5. Okay, so they bring out the sparkling rosé, and people cheer, then they start to drink and people cheer. Is life really that dull, that watching someone else take out an alcoholic beverage, then drinking said beverage is applause-worthy?

  6. He coats a plastic mold…. big deal… pick them up at any crafts store (even Walmart)… go old-school, and make them by hand, and ii'll be impressed… (and yes, I have)…

  7. There's really some nice contents here and I would subscribe, but to have to listen to that same, identical music at the end every single time scares the living daylights out of me.

  8. Lmao why is everyone saying Stephen is a low key kinky freak… He alluded to sex and using tongue, that's pretty damn standard 🤣

  9. I worked for a company that was LITERALLY across the street from the Jacques Torres store. My coworkers ended up making fun of me for going there too often. 😅 By far THE BEST chocolate I've ever had.

  10. Aww, I like this man! I remember talking to him in his chocolate shop when it had just newly opened in DUMBO…really nice person! As a Belgian, I approve of his chocolates! 🙂

  11. Stephen is so sexy! 😍 Aside: I wish that they would note which songs Jon references when making his piano comments! I do get some of them, but not all.

  12. Melted chocolate and poured it into a mould. Astonishing, mind blowing skills right there.
    Make a baked Alaska, then I'll be impressed.
