At the time where Hôtel Prince de Galles celebrates its 90th anniversary, its two chefs - Stéphanie Le Quellec (executive chef) and Nicolas Paciello (pastry chef) - came up with their Easter creation 2019 in partnership with Maison Lalique.
Both institutions are leading figures of Art Déco, their partnership sounds like an evidence. It's from the Collection Aquatique that the famous French crystal glass-making factory and the chefs drew their inspiration.
They paid tribute to Siamese fighting fishes by sculpting an impressive chocolate piece that stands out with all its details and its realism.
Creative and light, it's made of a fine layer of 43% milk chocolate (from Madagascar) or 73% dark chocolate (from Venezuela) filled with almond praline.
The luckiest foodies may discover one of the eight golden tickets hidden inside. With this precious sesame in hand, meet in one of the Lalique stores to get a Siamese fighting fish... made out of crystal this time.
Good to know, during this Easter time, small chocolate fishes (replicas of a creation by René Lalique in 1912) take over the rooms of the palace. Delicate chocolatey details.
