La Maison Du Chocolat Unveils 2013 Easter Prestige Collection

Every year, La Maison du Chocolat, the international luxury chocolatier from Paris (France) introduces a prestige collection for Easter.

For 2013, Master Chocolatier Nicolas Cloiseau has created a masterpiece in the form of the Limited Edition ‘Saute-mouton’ gift set which is based on a modern and pastoral vision of the traditional Easter bestiary.

A Saute-mouton: hand-made limited-edition piece. Pieces and decor composed of dark, milk, and ivory chocolate. Pieces are filled with praline eggs – 25 crepe dentelle praline eggs, 25 almond milk pralines, 25 dark chocolate and hazelnut pralines, 25 dark and crispy chocolate pralines, 20 dark chocolate fish, and 20 milk chocolate fish.

At the heart of this extraordinary and hand-made creation are the lambs named ‘Frisoton’ and ‘Frisette’ – the heroes of La Maison’s enthralled Easter tale which are available in both milk and dark chocolate, and feature a fleece which  is made from rolled up chocolate drops. This is complemented by frothy wool which has been skilfully sprayed, a fence which has been finely grooved and polished with cacao butter, mounds composed of soufflé chocolate, as well as daisies have been meticulously hand-painted.
