Don’t Miss the Chocolate Festival in Paris
If you’re planning on visiting Paris in late October be sure to pack your appetite, as from the 31st October until the 4th November the ‘Le Salon du Chocolat’, or the Chocolate Festival, will be sweetening up the city at the Porte de Versailles!
Paris chocolate tours are very popular all year long, but the Chocolate Festival in Paris has been a highlight of the city events calendar since it was established in 1995, and although it is already the largest festival of its kind in the world, each year there are yet more attractions to tempt all visitors with a sweet tooth.
Hundreds of chocolatiers from across the globe will be exhibiting their delectable delights and giving demonstrations on how they are created, followed by plenty of opportunities to sample. However it’s not just about gorging on chocolate as there is a strong learning element to the Chocolate Festival, and as cocoa growers will be in attendance you’ll be able to find out more about the fascinating chocolate production process – from the picking of the cocoa beans, until it reaches the supermarket shelves. Yummy! You all know how much I love chocolate 🙂
As well as chocolate manufacturers from countries like Switzerland, Belgium and Canada, the Chocolate Festival will also have stands from chocolate cookbook authors, pastry chefs and all other manner of chocolate experts.
Children will be able to take part in some fun and tasty chocolate workshops, visitors will be entertained by various musical and dance performances and not forgetting the highlight of the Chocolate Festival – the hotly-anticipated fashion show, featuring stylishly sweet dresses made almost completely out of chocolate!
