Shangri-La Hotel Paris new Pastry Chef Maxence Barbot unveils his splendid Easter creation 2020: a beehiver egg with hidden treasures, to enjoy by ordering from March 30.

This year, for Easter 2020, Shangri-La Hotel Paris new pastry chef Maxence Barbot blows us away with his exceptional creation: the Oeuf-Ruche (Beehive-Egg). As its name suggests it, this creation is shaped like a beehive shaped like an egg and features the queen and bees.

Arrived three months ago, the chef hits hard with a creation as beautiful as tasty and original. In addition to a magnificent teatime that will exceed the expectations of your taste buds very soon, Maxence Barbot unveils his Easter egg and it's a success. To make it, the chef has been inspired by nature and its wonders. The bee - and it's important to know it - is the emblem of the Bonaparte family. And let's not forget that the house that is now a hotel, used to belong to Prince Roland Bonaparte.

This chocolate Easter egg is displayed in an exceptional box. As a matter of fact, you'll withdraw it in a box made of Landes pine in which the egg is hung. Honeycombed, the egg is made of delicate 62% Passionato dark chocolate with subtle hints of spices and tannin.

Its heart features the queen of bees, upside down, the head in the swarm. It's made of chocolate and crispy Piedmont hazelnuts. At the bottom, we find roasted hazelnuts and delicious hazelnut praline bites.

But the surprise doesn't stop there, since the beehive also unveils a drawer inspired by the traditional honeycomb in which we find little bees filled with dark chocolate and chestnut tree honey, standing on a light chocolate crisp.
