A la Mère de Famille - Easter 2013 poule mouillé

“La poule mouillée” from A la Mère de Famille

A la Mère de Famille head chef Julien Merceron‘s twist on one of the traditional symbols of Easter deliciously combines humour and imagination.

Exquisitely handcrafted, “La poule mouillée” — a playful hen basking in a tub of crispy chocolate spheres — comes in dark chocolate (68 per cent cacao) or milk chocolate (36 per cent cacao). Its crest, beak and barbels are crafted out of marzipan.

The chocolate hen-in-a-tub and assorted goodies — chocolate eggs and “fritures” (tiny chocolate fish) are hidden inside — weigh 350 grams.
