|Too sweet. . . a fat chocolate egg wearing a marinière t-shirt and a sailor hat.|
Oneof the most famous chocolatiers in Paris,Jean-Paul Hévin, is known not only for his to die-for delicious confections, but also for his extraordinary creativity and his humor. Many of his objets d’art — and they are that — are inside jokes.
|Which came first, the chicken or the egg?|
Some of the blagues (jokes) are so French that even after all these years I don’t understand all of them until they’re explained to me (and then sometimes I don’t see the humor, but that’s another story).

According to a French televisiondocumentary, Hévin makes possibly the world’s most expensive chocolate creations. Do visit his site and savour his mastery of the material — talk about beauty and substance. You’ll also see some of the prices, which btw never discourage lovers of one of the world’s most divine pleasures from indulging.
In celebration of Easter, if you go here you will have a complete story on the grandmaisons de chocolat in Paris.
A apropos of my question above, would you break these masterpieces apart to eat them? Maybe not the first day. . .
JoyeusesPâques. I hope you have a glorious spring weekend full of joy and sunshine.
