Behind the scenes of the 2022 Easter Entremet Competition


On Monday 4 April, a mouth-wateringly exclusive event took place at One Monte-Carlo, with an exceptional judging panel comprising journalists, renowned industry professionals and Resort clientele. 

Following a set of pre-determined scoring criteria, this panel was responsible for selecting the winner of the 2022 Easter Entremet Competition. 

It was a day full of vibrant colour and flavour, where the Resort’s chocolatiers and pastry chefs once again got the chance to showcase their remarkable creativity, daring and skill.

And now you can enjoy the winning masterpiece, “Madame”, to your heart’s content! 


It was Giuseppina Castiello, demi-chef de partie at the Hôtel de Paris Monte-Carlo, who emerged victorious at this year’s Monte-Carlo Société des Bains de Mer Easter Competition.

The chef won the hearts of the judging panel with her creation, “Madame”, featuring a strawberry biscuit base, olive oil sweet pastry, vanilla yoghurt mousse and strawberry and rhubarb compote. 

Come and try her delicious Easter entremet for yourself across the resort: available both to eat in and take away.
