On Thursday I was invited to an 'adult' Easter egg hunt at KAVIARI.
We were given little burlap egg bags and told to look for the hidden fish
Among the many not-so-'hidden' chocolate mini eggs
No problem. The chocolate eggs were everywhere in view.
But the main objective was to find this chocolate 'sardine'. Then you could win a divine 30g tin of Caviar Baeri! Not easy to find. I was looking high and low, asking if I was chaud o froid (warm or cold). Everyone giggled and said the sardines were bien caché (well-hidden). Just when i was about to give up i found one. My picture was taken holding the prized tiny sardine.
My delicious winnings at home...
I bought one of Kaviari's handsome mugs and some other goodies at their boutique and prepared to paint them.
But yesterday I decided a hyacinth (on sale) + my bunny night light might make a better still life.
What better way to spend Easter Sunday then painting bunnies and Spring flowers.
On Friday, the day after the egg roll, I went hunting for fish, also known as fritures for the little ones.
Paris patisseries love to make chocolate fish for Pacques (Easter). Especially since the 1st of Avril, also known as poisson d'Avril
Falls on Easter Sunday. These stunning chocolate tablette/fish from MAISON DU CHOCOLAT were cleaned out of stock by Good Friday! Can you get away with eating chocolate fish instead of fish n' chips on Friday?
CYRIL LIGNAC still had plenty of fish on hand.
As did HUGO VICTOR. Big flounders with fancy bows readily available for munching.
I meant to go back and get a matcha tea chocolate fish from SADAHARU AOKI, but was exhausted from covering Paris' waterfront.
The king fish of chocolate eggs was at GERARD MULOT, with his school of fish entwining an enormous egg. I bet someone bought it and it is being devoured this very minute. The French take their Easter chocolate seriously. Easter chocolates will be in the stores for another week at least. Speaking of which THANK YOU PBers for shopping at my Etsy Spring sale! Most kind.
