See The Delectable Creations From The World’s Biggest Chocolate Show

Paris is among the most-visited cities in the world, and for good reason, we say. The cultural hub is home to some of the world’s most iconic monuments, fashion and food.

Oh, and a four-day festival dedicated to everyone’s favourite treat: chocolate.

It’s legit — Salon du Chocolat kicked off on Saturday, and is set to wrap up tonight. With more than 500 participants, including 200 dessert chefs from 60 different countries, the event is a must-attend for all chocolate-lovers.

The festival runs across various locations in the French capital, combining chocolate with all the other things France is famed for. A chocolate fashion show, for example.

Thirty talented chocolatiers and fashion designers collaborated to create an exceptional collection of cocoa couture for the event. The stunning chocolate-inspired outfits are on display every day at 5pm until November 1, local time.

There’s a range of other activities on offer too, including live demos, performances, and workshops. One of which combines the artistries of chocolate making and sculpting.

This year, Richard Orlinski, one of the best-known contemporary chocolate artists, is working with patissier Yann Couvreur on a monumental chocolate surprise.
