The Chocolate Show is the biggest fair in the world. Its history began 15 years ago in the city of Paris, and has rapidly become the largest chocolate event in the world, drawing very many Americans under the same roof. The show will also provide fashion preview, Halloween Kidzone Area, Chocolate Lounge Cafe and a Chocolate beauty pavilion. This year, the event is taking place in New York, from the October 30th to November 1st, 2009 and the opening hours are on Friday, October the 30th, from 12 AM to 8 PM, onm Saturday, October 31st, from 10 AM to 8 PM and on Sunday, November 1st, from 10 AM to 5 PM. The price of the ticket is $28.00, and each additional child ticket is $8.00. The show hosts 50 demonstrations given by top pastry chefs and chocolatiers.
The pâte de fruits were another favorite. Madécasse While other companies use beans from Madagascar, Madécasse actually makes their chocolate there. The Cara Mella (creamy caramel with peanut butter and dark chocolate) won the show award for best chocolate candy bar. Chocolate Springs While not a new company, Chocolate Spring’s pure and intense filled chocolates deserve a bit more attention. At their New York City shop, visitors can customize their own barks or choose one of the shop’s specialty combinations (classic, island, fusion, and woodlands).
