Chocolats de Pâques

Easter is coming up and it means all the chocolatiers in France are quite busy. I can only imagine how much chocolate the French eats during Easter :-) This is the period where I love passing by the vitrinas of the chocolatiers in Paris watching their too-beautiful-to-eat Easter egg creations. Easter egg hunts (chasses aux œufs) is very popular for the children, but around Easter, we are all counted as children, there is chocolate for everybody :-) I remember a beautiful Easter chocolate egg I recieved when I was working at Ladurée years ago which I saved for my sister as I know she loves chocolate. In Denmark, all employees at the company where I work, used to recieve chocolate Easter eggs made by Danish chocolatiers….

In France there are so many chocolatiers I can’t even the names of them all. Last weekend I passed by a few of my favourite ones and took some photos to share with you:

    Wonderful to see! I shot many of the same ones. French chocolatiers are every bit as creative as the French couture IMHO.
