Spend Easter in Italy, without leaving Kent



Buona Pasqua from Carluccio's in Bluewater, Canterbury and Tunbridge Wells.Easter isone of the most important festivals in the Italian calendar, second only to Christmas and associated with a host of traditional celebrations.




Whether youre looking for an Easter biscuit-decorating workshop for creative kids, artisanal Easter gifts sourced from Italy, or somewhere truly Italian to take the whole family for an Easter feast, pop in to Carluccios caff.







EASTER EGGS, GIFTS AND GOODIES



No Easter would be complete without chocolate eggs and Carluccios offers a fabulous selectionof beautifully packaged varieties including the ultimate in indulgence the Uovo Grandissimo. Weighing in at a whopping 5kg, made from dark chocolate and hand-decorated with the classic Italian Easter greeting, this 145 confection is a chocoholics dream. If your tastes are molto piccolo, choose from the smaller Uovo Grande (17.95 for 400g) and Uovo Decorato (6.95 for 150g), both available in a choice of dark, milk and white chocolate.



For something quirky, Carluccios crme egg-esque Uovo alla coque look like soft-boiled eggs but taste much better. Theyre made from dark chocolate and hazelnut paste and topped with white chocolate, and cost just 2.95 each.



Italians might not countthe Easter Bunny as a traditional symbol of the season, but Carluccios does offer a wise-looking hare, the Lepre di Cioccolato, available in milk, dark and white chocolate at 6.95 for 120g. Following on with the animal theme, Carluccios chocolate fish in eye-catching vivid huescome in two sizes, priced at 2.50 and 5.95.




Easters not all about chocolate though. For an authentic Italian Easter cake, the Colomba Tradizionale is named after and shaped like a dove, the symbol of peace. This soft cake, with plenty of butter, sultana and candied peel is available in two sizes: 13.95 for 750g and individual versions of 100g for 3.95.







CHILDRENS EASTER BISCUIT DECORATING MORNINGS
