This weekend is the Salon du Chocolat in Paris.
My advice is to go with a big appetite, big pockets and a big checkbook. There is lots of sampling and plenty of temptation.
There’s hot chocolate and chocolate spreads.
Chocolate bonbons in bright colors…
and shaped like animals and fish and vegetables.
There are chocolate truffles, chocolate mendiants and chocolate pavés.
Chocolate bars and chocolate tablettes.
There are giant slabs of chocolate with nuts and berries and candies…
…and chocolate treats by the ounce.
Chocolate fondant, chocolate pastries and chocolate macarons.
Plus, chocolate demos and sculptures.
There are chocolatiers and chocolate experts.
High quality chocolate…
… and sugary garbage.
I think there will be plenty of chocolate in my dreams tonight.
