Bucolic and nostalgic, the Easter collection from Louis Fouquet pays tribute to a loyal customer.

March 1865. A bearded man dressed in a black overcoat walked into the confectionery in the 9th arrondissement. Born in the same rue Laffitte a few decades earlier, this customer loves Louis Fouquet's violet candies. His name: Claude Monet.

This season, our House has decided to pay homage to him with an Easter collection inspired by the artist's palette and his love of gardens. Where the first flowers are budding, young and old will set off, baskets in hand, in search of these hidden delicacies. Outpourings of joy surrounded by a historic artisanal heritage and a meticulous selection of the best ingredients to celebrate the arrival of spring.

The Limited Edition Floral Egg by Cordelia de Castellane

Symbol of the French art of living, Louis Fouquet could not have found a better ambassador than Cordelia de Castellane. This figure of good taste and Parisian chic drew on the house's archives to design a delicate floral motif, reproduced on a variation of dark (Ecuador, 70%), milk (Ghana 43%) and white chocolate eggs. . Delicacies garnished with fried foods, praline eggs, and our emblematic fruity pucks.

More than a collection of sweets, these creations have been imagined as real decorative objects for aficionados of large tables. The eggs will be presented on woven wicker egg cups resembling Medici vases, with a rattan-style print, echoing Claude Monet's baskets at Giverny. A work of craftsmanship and excellence, without any compromise on taste.

The faithful of the house will also find their chocolate emblem. A “fouquet”, squirrel in Angevin dialect, drawn by Cordélia de Castellane. Full of charm and mischief, it will prove to be essential for a memorable egg hunt.

The great classics

These ephemeral creations will be accompanied by the great chocolate classics, like praline eggs and emblematic Easter subjects - fish, rabbits, chickens - presented in a box incorporating the codes of the House.

Our mendicant egg is also back with its inclusions of Greek pistachios, Piedmont hazelnuts, Marcona almonds and dried and candied fruits.
But also two praline-filled bars, with velvety textures and comforting aromas:

. The garden egg, filled with a creamy almond spread.
. The Charlotte la Cocotte bar, topped with a delicious caramel almond and puffed rice spread exclusively for Galeries Lafayette.

Lovers of our iconic little pots of chocolates and confectionery can come to the store to put together their own seasonal box.
