Salon du Chocolat, who runs chocolate shows all over the world, has come to London for the first time this year and is currently at Kensington Olympia to celebrate Chocolate Week.
If looking for a day out sampling all sorts of chocolates, you are in luck! Do go with your ferocious sweet tooth as visitors are offered all sorts of chocolates from the vendors.
The most amazing items I saw were the dresses of chocolate. Some were adorned with chocolate pieces or cupcakes but others were made of chocolate.
Visitors are allowed within a foot of the dresses allowing one to see the details up close. I saw quite a few posing for pictures with the magical dresses.
Other items affording me sweet dreams last night….
And the 100% British House of Dorcester….I tried their Americano truffle which was the perfect balance of cocoa and coffee.
Or check out some of the seminars in the Culinary Theatre.
If you go, I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
