Frédéric Bau, accompanied by 43 artisan pastry chefs and chocolatiers, as well as a dozen contemporary artists, presents an unusual exhibition with the egg as the protagonist: “L’oeuf, de main de maître”, which can be visited until May 7 in the Thorigny-Le Marais space in Paris. A free sample in which spectacular pieces made entirely of chocolate stand out, although there are also photographs, sculptures and paintings.
Eggs, often associated with Easter, are worked, sculpted, and embellished, becoming true works of art. Among the participating chefs we find big names such as Pierre Hermé, Nina Métayer, Quentin Lechat, Maxence Barbot, Pierre Marcolini, Oriol Balaguer, Marc Ducobu, Cédric Grolet, Vincent Guerlais, Jean-Paul Hévin, and Patrick Roger.
With the aim of reducing waste and refuse, all these works have also been created with recycled chocolate.
