Fabergé and The Ritz London Collaborate to Create a Unique Easter Experience
In celebration of Easter, two of the world’s most iconic brands, Fabergé and The Ritz London, are renewing their unique relationship with a collaboration which both ignites the senses and captures the spirit of craftsmanship. Both renowned as being at the epitome of luxury, the partnership is a perfect marriage of heritage and modernity and will take place at The Ritz London between Monday 11th and Monday 18th April 2022.
The Ritz London’s Executive Chef, John Williams MBE, and Head Pastry Chef, Lewis Wilson, have applied the highest level of technical expertise to create two distinct chocolate Fabergé eggs, each paying tribute to the exquisite artistry symbolised in both Fabergé’s current collection as well as its historical masterpieces.
Throughout the Easter week, a four-course Fabergé menu will be available in the Michelin-starred Ritz Restaurant, inclusive of a hand-crafted chocolate Fabergé egg dessert. Inspired by the Essence Rose Gold Ruby Heart Surprise Locket from Fabergé’s current collection, which features an 18k rose gold egg opening to reveal a ruby heart surprise hidden inside, the delicate egg dessert consists of an intricate dark chocolate spherical cage, which opens up (closely mirroring the Fabergé egg) to reveal a gold, dark chocolate egg within, filled with a hazelnut and chocolate mousse centre. The egg sits delicately on a ruby red tuille and is decorated with edible ruby red gemstones. The dessert is served with vanilla ice-cream to complement. An elaborate chocolate Fabergé Egg sculpture has also been created by The Ritz London and will be on display at the hotel throughout the Easter week. The chocolate creation pays tribute to Peter Carl Fabergé’s iconic 1901 Imperial Basket of Flowers Egg, one of the most technically sophisticated and extraordinary of all the Fabergé Imperial Easter Eggs, and one which resides in the Royal Collection Trust today. Standing at 45 centimetres tall, the sculpture consists of a handmade chocolate egg, adorned with a bouquet of pastel-coloured, hand-brushed chocolate flowers and is finished with raised gold detailing, to reflect the fascinating complexity of the original Egg. The delicate chocolate Fabergé Egg will sit upon a uniquely designed chocolate base, which too takes its inspiration from the Imperial Basket of Flowers Egg.
