The British chef Heston Blumenthal will continue his relationship with the supermarket chain Waitrose by launching a line of hand crafted Easter eggs.
The egg will be made using dark chocolate and finished with an extra layer of sprayed chocolate. Inside the chocolate shell there are six mandarin ganache chocolates that look like mini bird’s eggs - they rest on a bed of straw made using edible vanilla paper.
Speaking about the new product, of which only 8,000 will be produced, Chris Moore from Waitrose said: ‘We've been working with Heston for over a year to create an egg that will really stand out from the crowd. There's nothing else quite like it.’
The eggs will cost £20 each as the supermarket hope to cash in on the same demand that saw thousands of people snap up special Blumenthal designed Christmas puddings.
