At Le Salon du Chocolat, Paris, France


I attended the Salon du Chocolat in Paris, France today. It runs from 31st Oct – 4th Nov and can be seen at pavilion 5, Porte de Versailles (reached by line 12 on Paris Metro). The event features chocolatiers from around the world exhibiting their wares, exhibits, tastings and a fashion show.
The event seemed to be very popular! I arrived on a Friday afternoon, and there were quite large crowds queuing to get in. After a reasonable wait for tickets I was in! The pavilion was crowded , but the chocolate stalls were a sight to behold, exceeding my expectations. There were a very large number of them with many nations represented, including wares from Japan and Brazil. Towards the entrance to the pavilion were stalls for the foreign chocolatiers. Towards the back the French chocolatiers were prominent. There were some highly innovative and interesting displays. I was able to get some free tastings in and also make some purchases. All in all, a good day in the world of chocolate! My photos hopefully capture some of the flavour of the event.
