The next two blogs will be on my favourite time of year…, Easter. As a confirmed chocoholic, being faced with the mastery of the chocolatiers in the Perigord is pure delight.
So first, the array of Easter delights at Maison Carré at Castlenaud-la-Chapelle.
As I entered the shop this morning my senses were hit with the outstanding display of chocolate creations which are produced by the Master Chocolatier.
Here are just a few examples from the large selection on show.
There are Eggs from small to large and Easter bells, bunnies, and chickens, to pretty flowers and Easter themed cartoon characters, all displayed on the tables and cabinets throughout the shop.
Some are just too gorgeous to eat, well nearly!
They also sell the most delicious macarons and gâteaux, petit and grand, that you have ever tasted. Plus an assortment of fine French breads and pastries, which are always served to you with a smile.
The youngest member of the team at Maison Carré. It is a delightful Boulangerie, Patisserie and Master Chocolatier in one shop.
Paul and I go most Sundays mornings to buy our breakfast treat of the week and to stock up with their delicious breads.
We have found that French bread will freeze well for short periods of time of up to a week if wrapped in cling film.
