Of course Easter is no exception.

Even before having his own venue, when he worked for the Duhau Palace, it was expected that

his proposal for Easter would be different from anything known.

"We are inspired by the colors of the place

," says Betular.

It refers to the palette that predominates in the patisserie and that is reflected in most of the products.

"At Christmas it was burgundy, for Valentine's Day yellow predominated and for Easter we chose orange",

details the pastry chef.

The shop window of the patisserie welcomes its customers with figures of rabbits in various shades and eggs on display.

Upon entering the premises, the boxes where these products will be stored appear and the shelves overflow with tubes with

eggs wrapped in colored foil. 

They started thinking about the proposal a few days before Valentine's Day.

So they were rehearsing and doing tests in the middle of summer.

The heat wave that hit the country surprised them in the middle of production: "One day our power went out and the air didn't work, we thought we were losing all production," says Juli Debicki, pastry chef and Damián's right-hand man.

The color and texture of the eggs is hypnotic, it is hard to distinguish that they are made of chocolate and

they shine so much that they seem to be turned marble. 

The packaging had a lot of influence: “It was made by our designer, who manages the entire image for us.

When we received the sample of what the box would be like, we saw an egg that we loved and decided to follow that aesthetic”, says Juli. 

Regarding the flavors, Damián confesses that he delegated the task to his right hand: "She is an expert," he explains.

All versions are made with white chocolate, hazelnut praline, and milk chocolate.

“We incorporated the praline that gives the egg a crunchy texture.

And she has layers like a Kinder egg,” Juli explains.
