My inspiration was my grandmother's way of naturally dyeing Easter Eggs with onion skins, but not before pressing parsley, carrot leaves and other herbs on the white egg, to reveal in the end a delicate contour of the leaf on the reddened egg shell. Pretty cool, right? It's was actually a popular custom around Europe a long time ago, but few countries still keep their traditions alive in the face of the chocolate eggs frenzy. So here's for the grandmothers, mothers and aunts that taught us this lovely custom and for the way it melts our hearts and takes us instantly back to our childhood!
