A la Mère de Famille: Chocolate fashion

A la Mère de Famille‘s Easter collection features a chocolate hen that’s all dressed up for the occasion, with her edible cape, hat and handbag.

Decked out in a houndstooth cape, “Poule pied d’poule,” designed by Chef Julien Merceron, is made of 65 per cent dark chocolate (or 36 per cent milk chocolate). The accessories, face and feet are made of marzipan.
