While many of us will be escaping the city to go in search of the Easter Bunny, a lungful of fresh countryside air and, of course, a slap up Sunday roast chez Mum and Dad, there’s definitely something to be said about staying in town this weekend and enjoying the Capital’s Easter offerings, too. You’ll find us, for example, lording it 100 ft above High Street Ken enjoying the springtime delights of the Kensington Roof Gardens
. If you’ve yet to experience these glorious gardens in the sky, this Easter Sunday’s ‘eggstravaganza’ is the perfect excuse – not least because they’ve teamed up with the delectable Choccywoccydoodah
for one indulgent Easter egg hunt. The bar will be open from 11am, serving tea, coffee and, we’re promised, something a little stronger from midday, so while your own little hoppers unearth hidden chocolaty delights in the beautiful Spanish Garden, you can sit back, relax and take it all in – drink in hand, of course.
But chocolate is categorically not just for kids, and, to prove it, we’ve rounded up three of our top creations in cocoa we’ll be looking forward to giving, and of course receiving, this Easter. Fortnum & Mason are appealing to our oh-so-feminine side with their floral and fancy hand-decorated white egg. It’s almost too pretty to eat. (£39.95) New for 2015, chocolatiers to Her Majesty The Queen, no less, Prestat have come up with a real treat for chocoholics and cake-lovers alike: their decadent Red Velvet Truffle egg. (£15) And, if death by chocolate was in fact possible, it’s best to go out in style: fresh from Harrods, the Easter Simnal Truffle Eggs are truly devastating – in the best possible way. (£3.95 each)
