Le Bristol Paris celebrates springtime with custom Easter Egg and décor
As springtime awakens Paris, the chocolaterie at Le Bristol Paris is aflutter with the meticulous creation of its annual Easter Egg. Since 2021, introduced by Chef chocolatier Johan Giacchetti, Le Bristol’s chocolate factory has emanated heavenly aromas from the heart of the hotel’s ground floor workshops and tempted customers with its exceptional handmade creations presented as welcome treats in guest rooms and as takeaway indulgences from L’Épicerie des Ateliers du Bristol. The 3-person chocolaterie team creates in-house chocolates from the world’s finest cacao and accompanying ingredients such as Piemonte hazelnuts, candied fruit and exotic spices.
This Easter season, the team is introducing a fresh, nature-inspired take on the annual Easter egg with their ‘Butterfly Effect’ creation, to be presented in L’Épicerie des Ateliers du Bristol and available on Click and collect for a limited time from March, 20th 2023 to April, 10th 2023.
Hand-crafted out of dark chocolate from Madagascar the large egg stands erect on a chocolate foundation and is filled with a praline of crushed almonds, hazelnut morsels and vanilla. In a design influenced by Chef Johan Giacchetti’s love for springtime nature walks, the egg is adorned by a delicate flourish of butterflies coloured in deep red lining the side as if to have landed there temporarily before fluttering away again.
To echo the chocolaterie’s elegant Easter egg creation, Le Bristol Paris’ lobby is decorated for springtime in a breathtaking installation of 20,000 paper butterflies created in France by Studio Björg in collaboration with renowned paper artist Mathilde Nivet. The installation decorates the lobby’s central table, visible immediately upon entry of the hotel’s revolving doors.
‘Butterfly Effect’ chocolate Easter egg will be available for purchase for a limited time at L’Épicerie des Ateliers du Bristol and on Click and collect from March, 20th to April, 10th 2023, at 90euros.
