Parisian delicatessen specialising in high-end chocolat, founded in the roaring twenties by Godfrey de Frou-Frou Maple and Maginot de Vere Maple. The business transmogrified when, during a trip to the new world to expand their sources of cacao, the Maple brothers were shipwrecked off the coast of Grand Cayman in 1891. There they met amateur naturalist and Tramadol addict A. J. N. Calder, with whom they formed a joint venure, bought an orphanage of Old Man Ugland, the great benefactor of George Town, diversified into legal practice, and the rest, they say is l’histoire.
