5 days out of 6 I attended this year's Salon du Chocolat. That's a record for me.
The chocolate fountains were flowing as always...
One of my favorite tiny chocolate boxes from Jean-Charles Rochoux.
The other small chocolate box is from Pierre Herme.
Herme was very much present at this year's Salon
Doing hot chocolate demos and giving classes. Lots of new people at the Salon this year.
Speaking of small, these little jars of tartiner in all flavors were awfully tempting.
A wall of flowing chocolate from Bonnet.
Lots of chocolate machines emphasizing the bean-to-bar process at the Salon.
The biggest column of chocolates from Belgian Leonidas.
Slabs of chocolate stacked like greeting cards. What a nice way to say "Hello!"
I've yet to get a good view of the annual chocolate fashion show without parking myself for an hour ahead.
The closest I got to the daily show at 4:30. Forgetaboutit!
Fortunately the outfits are on display as well.
Two of my favorite gowns.
Where would the Salon be without all the young student chefs helping out? Me, I'm ready for some serious detox and minceur/thinning teas bien sur.
