Prestat, chocolatier to Her Majesty The Queen, has created a fabulous NEW Hot Cross Bun Spiced Easter Egg – combining velvety milk chocolate with a secret spice recipe to create the nostalgic taste of hot cross buns. Each egg is filled with a clutch of mini gold foiled eggs before being tied with a ribbon and placed into one of their beautiful boxes.
Founded in London in 1902, the chocolate shop was opened by descendants of Louis Dufour (the man who created the world’s first recorded chocolate truffle in Chambery, France in 1896). Prestat’s reputation for making exquisite handmade chocolates quickly spread and before too long, maharajas, sultans, presidents and stars of the stage and screen had all experienced the delight that only the finest chocolate can bring.
Prestat’s quintessential Mints and their Rose and Violet Crèmes were Her Majesty The Queen Mother’s favourite chocolates. Both The Queen Mother and Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II granted Prestat a Royal Warrant and Prestat chocolates continue to be served at every major state banquet. Prestat is one of the few British artisan chocolatiers to make all its own chocolates – giving it complete control of recipes and the sourcing of ingredients as well as the opportunity to nurture the traditional skills needed to create its handcrafted chocolates.
Prestat’s kitchens have won 13 Gold Great Taste Awards in the last two years, as well as being voted ‘The Country’s Best Chocolate and Confectionary Brand (2014-2015).
This Easter there is no better way to treat a special someone in your life with some of the finest chocolate available. These sumptuous Chocolates are available at Prestat’s Concession in the Harrod’s Foodhalls (www.harrods.com) as well as in Selfridges, Harrods and John Lewis. Some lines are also available in Waitress and Ocado.
