This Easter, Nobu London will give the classic chocolate egg a Michelin-star make-over. Executive head pastry chef Regis Cursan has created three Japanese designs in milk, white and dark chocolate, all from fairtrade suppliers.
The Nami, meaning wave in Japanese, uses dark chocolate made with 72 per cent cocoa. The Zen, inspired by the traditional rake pattern of Japanese gardens, is created with milk chocolate and sprayed a vibrant red. Finally the white chocolate Piramido, meaning pyramid, is an ode to Japanese refinement and geometry.
Whatever the sentiment, it’s likely they’ll be delicious, and you’ll be too enraptured to notice none of them rattle with fun-sized treats inside.
