Not that we needed another reason to visit Paris' super-swank, five-star Hotel Fouquet Barriere--but when we heard there was a complimentary gourmet chocolate making workshop--let's just say it sweetened the deal. In celebration of Easter, on April 13th, Pastry Chef Jean-Luc Labat will share his methods of molding and decorating Easter eggs at the hotel's restaurant, Le Diane. Labat will also demonstrate how to make a chocolate mountain, by piecing together dark, milk, and white chocolate shapes. Um, yum! Each guest that participates will receive a wooden cooking spoon, chef's hat, and apron, not to mention a satiated appetite.A special chocolate-themed overnight Easter Package is also available, and includes:
- One night accommodation in a luxurious room or suite
- Special chocolate treatment at the hotel's U spa, including a chocolate-based body scrub, massage with chocolate and mango butter and an edible treat
- Daily continental breakfast
- Lunch or dinner for two at the renowned Fouquet's restaurant
- VIP welcome amenities
The Easter Package is valid from April 10 to 13, 2009, and rates (based on double occupancy) start at $1,105 for a Superior room.
