Succumb to the temptation of the Salon du Chocolat
Published on 21 September 2014, dans Fairs & Trade Shows
The largest event in the world dedicated to chocolate
This year marks the 20th anniversary of the Salon du Chocolat (Paris chocolate show) and the organisers have gone all out to ensure that it’s the best one yet. There will be over 500 participants this year, including some 200 pastry chefs and chocolatiers, many of who will be demonstrating their considerable skills in a series of demonstrations, and also workshops for children. Major companies will be unveiling new products, industry insiders will be sharing their knowledge in a series of lectures and conferences, and there will be a special bookshop section with authors signing their latest offerings.
The excitement continues with the Cocoa Show, a fun-packed entertainment celebrating chocolate culture and featuring dance, songs and traditions of cocoa producing countries. Learn the secrets of cocoa processing ‘From Bean To Bar’. Then, of course, there is the event that has become almost a legendary aspect of these occasions, the Chocolate Fashion Show. Chocolatiers and couturiers join forces to provide an astonishing spectacle; chocolate clothing worn by models on the catwalk! This is something you have to see, along with a 20th anniversary retrospective on the finest chocolate fashions from past events.
