Spend Easter in Italy, without leaving Kent

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

Whether you’re 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 Carluccio’s caff�.

EASTER EGGS, GIFTS AND GOODIES

No Easter would be complete without chocolate eggs and Carluccio’s offers a fabulous selection of 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 chocoholic’s 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, Carluccio’s cr�me egg-esque Uovo alla coque – look like soft-boiled eggs – but taste much better. They’re made from dark chocolate and hazelnut paste and topped with white chocolate, and cost just �2.95 each.
