Enchant both children and adults alike this Easter by setting a brunch table feast fit for even the most selective of palates. From savoury baked goods like the egg-centric Ramequins au Fromage with Swiss Gruyere to his sweet, handcrafted chocolate egg sculptures, Burnaby Height’s Chez Christophe Chocolaterie Patisserie (4712 Hastings Street) is the destination for all things edible on Easter.
“Enjoying Easter brunch on Easter Sunday is a tradition for my family,” says Christophe Bonzon, Swiss-trained master confectioner and owner of Chez Christophe Chocolaterie Patisserie. “The pastries we offer at the shop are perfect for any breakfast table. And, of course, we are continuing with the European tradition of artistic Easter chocolate eggs. Our hope is that whatever our customers choose, be it biting into a hot buttery croissant or cracking open a chocolate egg, our creations will make their stomachs happy on this day of family gathering.”
Chez Christophe’s savoury “viennoiserie” pastries also include the Parmigiano Rosemary Scone and Flutes, Cracked Sea Salt flutes, brioche, and classic croissants. For those with a sweet tooth, options include the Pain au Chocolate with Hazelnut, Double-Baked Croissant with Pecan Maple Syrup, Chausson aux Pommes, and Double Baked Pain au Chocolate with Hazelnut Cream. And, for those who love to spread jam on their scones or croissants, be sure to pick up some artisanal jam made in-house with fresh, locally-sourced fruits. In addition, there will also be a selection of cakes. Prices start from $2.50 per piece.
Bonzon has added to his collection of contemporary Easter chocolate eggs this year with a new coconut sculpture. His popular intricate lattice wrapped showpiece with surprise-packed golden egg makes a return, as well as the egg-within-an-egg and whimsical poulette. Prices range from $19.95 for a small egg to $65 for an extra large. Limited quantities are available starting March 16, 2015. Gift baskets available. Pre-orders welcome.
