Last Sunday I attended the Salon du Chocolat show at the Olympia in Kensington. I hadn’t heard of Salon du Chocolat before until I saw it advertised. This was the first time the event had took place in London as normally it’s held in Paris, Cannes, Brussels, New York, Tokyo and many more cities around the world. On first impressions the event looked smaller than previous events, it was held on the ground floor in one of the buildings that Olympia owns. I was expecting there to be more stalls than there was as I walked around everything in about an hour. Around the outside of the room was a chocolate kitchen with demonstrations, a tasting room and a chocolate kitchen where you could make chocolates with moulds and finally a chocolate workshop for kids.
I watched some demonstrations for a bit and watched some of the people making chocolates with moulds. The event also hosted a chocolate Fashion Show. The Catwalk must have been in the morning when the event first opened as I missed it which was a shame as I was looking forward to it.
What is your favourite chocolate brand?
