World’s most expensive chocolate egg for auction in Platres

A CHOCOLATE workshop in Platres village is preparing for an Easter egg charity auction with a show-stopping egg valued at €25,000.

The egg has attracted the attention of the Guinness Book of Records for ratification as the most expensive chocolate Easter egg ever made.

“Our showstopper will be decorated with a four carat diamond pendant, one carat diamond ring, rubies, emeralds, some sapphire and amethysts,” said John Adams, who owns and runs the Chocolate Workshop in Platres with his wife Efpraxia Perdiou.

This egg will in fact be the first of its kind. “No one has ever made a chocolate Easter egg with diamonds. The closest thing is the Faberg? egg, but that’s porcelain. We were inspired by Faberg? to make this, but ours is made of chocolate, not porcelain. So there isn’t anything like it – we are setting the benchmark for luxury chocolate eggs,” said Efpraxia Perdiou.

Guinness Book of Records will be present at the auction in Platres to ratify the egg. “We contacted the Guinness Book of Records and they have approved our attempt. An official Guinness Book photographer will be present at the auction to take a picture of the egg.

Independent professional valuers will also be present,” Adams explained.

“At the auction, there will be a reserve on the big one, set at €15,000. A number of people have already expressed interest and have said they will bid on it. No reserve will be set for the other eggs,” he added.

The Chocolate Workshop plans to specialise in chocolate cups with traditional Cypriot fillings. “All of our chocolate cups are hand made and filled with traditional Cypriot ingredients such as zivania, commandaria, glyko, Cyprus coffee and palouze,” Adams explained.

The auction will take place on Saturday, April 5 at 3.30pm and will mark the Chocolate Workshop’s official opening. The workshop’s owners plan to establish the charity Easter egg auction as an annual event. In addition to the showstopper, bidders can choose between a giant one-meter high chocolate egg and a variety of other delicacies.

All profit from the auction will go to the Sirius Dog Foundation, which operates a dog shelter in the Limassol district.
