As if I needed an excuse to visit Paris again… When I read about the Salon du Chocolat, I knew I had to check it out. As the event organizers write on their webpage, the Salon is “the not-to-be-missed event for those who share a passion for this exceptional product”. It truly is.
With over a hundred exhibitors from all over the world, there’s much more than “just” chocolate. There are stands selling macaroons, nougat, cookies, nuts, etc. Not to mention the lovely chocolate- & macaroon-inspired paintings and greeting cards!
The best part of it all? Smelling chocolate everywhere…
I arrived at the Salon around opening time, 10 a.m., hoping the place would be empty. How foolish… Still, at 10 a.m. it wasn’t as crowded as it got later. So if you’re thinking of going, try to be there as early as possible.
But if you cannot make it to Paris this time, no worries: the Salon is held in other cities as well, including New York, Tokyo, and… Zurich! I do not have to tell you guys that I already wrote down the date of the Zurich edition in my calendar, do I? 😉
