The Monte-Carlo Group Société des Bains de Mer, known for its glamor and elegance of its properties, remains a tireless researcher for latest trends, tastes ... and shapes. This year, the Easter egg at the Hotel Hermitage holds many surprises that shine! L'Hermitage Hotel is the ideal place to enjoy the first days of spring, made of exceptional moments, gourmet menus and / or family stays.

To echo the Year of Russia in Monaco, pastry chef Nicolas Baygourry imagined an Easter egg inspired by the fabulous jewelery boxes created by Peter Carl Fabergé in the late 19th century. Faberge eggs were made for the Russian Tsars who offered them to tsarines on the occasion of Easter. The term "Faberge egg" has become synonymous with luxury; The Fabergé house just unveiled in February and 99 years after its latest creation, a new imperial egg decorated with 139 pearls and 3,300 diamonds.

Chocolate, symbol and ultimate tasting pleasure associated with Easter had to play the leading role. Also, the pastry chef has selected a dark chocolate 64% Brasil Grand Cru called Macaé to black tea flavors and dried apricots to develop its "Faberge egg"; a work of craftsmanship to create a piece of art with a delicate taste makes silver sugar pearls delicately inlaid on the egg, subtle hues and goldsmith details like that golden hinge.

And like the original Faberge eggs, it is full of gourmet treasures like nougat, fudge, chocolates, fried milk and dark chocolate in the shape of fish.

Guests of the Hermitage Hotel can discover and enjoy this egg during a hotel stay but also they can order it to share its flavors. Easter is synonymous with family fun and the hotel known for its refined atmosphere offers Easter lunch in the Salle Belle Epoque, and for children, an egg hunt in the gardens as well as creative workshops.
