It’s one thing to be laughing about the global pandemic and an entirely different matter to find positivity amidst the crisis. And helping you do the latter with a good dose of humor is French chocolatier and pastry chef- Jean-François Pré who recently designed Easter eggs inspired by – yep you guessed it- the coronavirus!
Pré apparently began working on his idea as a joke after he grew tired of hearing about the deadly virus everywhere. However, what started out as fun soon turned into a full-fledged project after he received a few takers for his delicious eggs. To bring the rather exotic sweet wonders to shape, Pré uses a 3D image of the virus and then converts it into a chocolate egg. He then decorated it with pieces of red almonds to ape the virus’s spike protein.
According to reports, Pré has successfully sold over a dozen of his new creations to customers in western France’s Finistere region. One of the delighted buyers said – “It’s original. It does make a change from the psychosis that we normally hear. It’s good that it’s done – it’s more original than what we hear constantly in our heads,” while another added – “In these times of worry – of depression – or even of psychosis, it is important to calm things down and lead from the front because a smile is often a way to overcome our fears – it’s perhaps the best antidote to fear.”
The exclusive coronavirus-inspired eggs can be purchased at Jean-François Pré’s shop in Landivisiau on Rue Louis Pasteur in Paris.
