Jean-Charles Rochoux Paris Easter chocolate 2015

A chocolate egg fit for a king

Chocolatier Jean-Charles Rochoux‘s regal-looking chocolate egg harks back to Easter traditions of yesteryear.

Indeed, King Louis XIV of France (1638-1715) used to distribute gold-leaf-painted eggs among his courtisans and servants at Easter.

 Louis XIV was known to be very fond of chocolate, and under his reign, it became very popular at the Court.

Jean-Charles Rochoux’s gold-leaf-painted chocolate egg is available in dark, milk or white chocolate and is filled with praliné eggs.
