 This year, on the occasion of the 2019 Easter celebrations, the greatest Pastry and Chocolate Chefs in Paris have redoubled their efforts to satisfy the taste buds of both young and old.

This year, Pierre Hermé has chosen to shake up the codes of the traditional chocolate egg by creating a gourmet interpretation of the MOOD of the French goldsmith brand Christofle. He made an egg with a flat bottom and randomly covered with silver leaves.

At the age of 5, when his father was melting eggs, bells, chickens, or even Easter bunnies in the workshop of the family bakery-pastry shop in Colmar, Pierre Hermé was enjoying milk chocolate overflowing with moulds. He has since kept in mind the intoxicating scents, such as a Madeleine de Proust, as well as the taste for traditional chocolate creations, which he nevertheless likes to revisit.

2. The most elegant: Cyril Lignacpaques cyril

The chef chocolatier of the House of Le Roux, Julien Gouzien, has created for Easter 2019 a chocolate egg covered with little Greek blue eyes (you know, the same eyes as those on the key ring that your family brought you back from their holidays in Greece to bring you luck and protect you from the evil eye!). An honor to Greece with a beautiful Easter egg called "Blue Eye".

For several years now, Hugo and Victor have been offering eggs with vegetable colors for beautiful and fun chocolates. This year, you will be treated to a chocolate with raspberry flavors, a pink shell with a crystallized appearance, or an egg in two colors, red and yellow, which reveals notes of strawberry and passion fruit. Filled with fried food, they will please young and old alike.

Sophie - Lifestyle

Bonjour, my name is Sophie. I live in the heart of Paris. I’ve always loved to travel and, over the years, I developed it into a real art: the right addresses, the suitcase, how to manage fatigue with my Parisian look! From Cannes to Antigua, from the red carpet to Pilates, I have to live up to the reputation. I have small apartments in Paris that I rent out. I love to personally welcome my guests and give them some recommendations about life in Paris “living like a true Parisian and not like a simple tourist in an elegant private suit in the heart of the city”.
