    • Founded in 1890 by the Daranatz brothers, the Daranatz House is one of the pillars of Bayonne’s hand-crafted chocolate tradition. In the shops of Bayonne and Biarritz, time passes by without shaking things up. Generations of Gourmands' successively come back in search of a unique expertise.

      A delectable surprise which shatters all preconceived ideas waits for you there! Fresh “touron” (marzipan) and macaroons !

      The “touron” recipe of the Daranatz brothers’ draws its originality from the almonds, left uncooked so they exhale all their aromas, which requires constant freshness.

      Nearly every day of the year, the fresh “touron” is elaborated with a home-made blend of two particular varieties of almonds "Valencia" and "Marcona", and the delicacy of this marriage is unrivalled. Finely ground through several passages in a stone-grinder, then delicately kneaded by hand, the paste is subsequently given the form of balls, bars, or “petits-fours”.

      With this same almond paste, a few small secrets and manual skill, stage by stage, the Daranatz macaroons are prepared by hand. And so, naturally, all the fineness, the aroma freshness of this almond blend are revealed, and it is absolutely delicious !

      You cannot miss the wide range of "chocolate bonbons", ganaches, pralines, “orangettes” (orange zest in chocolate), and some other house specialities on the counter, or else the bars of chocolate, more than 30 different recipes, an rainbow of flavours. It is hard to resist !

    Gorgeous looking chocolate with such an array of temptations. Baiona has such great food that after a Michelin guide lunch, I only had the appetite to buy bars of chocolate which I quickly sent back home. But what I tasted and the variety of chocolate blocks available was incredible. I really should have shopped hungry because then I would have bought more - and at Daranatz, you will want to buy big!
