Salon du chocolat (Chocolate show)



Last sunday was my first experience at Salon du Chocolat.

I had heard good and bad things about it and it was time to try by myself. Actually I didn't get there by myself since Chloe and Lilian convinced me to join them in their chocolate adventures. Needless to say it was not too difficult to persuades me to come. At 10am on sunday we were a group of 9person ready to taste any kind of chocolate.
At 10:05 there was already a group split : it was too difficult to stay together to wander around. The crowd was reasonable until 11-11:30 but later it became too difficult to navigate from 1 place to the other.
The smell was amazing, and so were some of the samples I managed to taste. I just regret some sample were ridiculously small... how can you really taste a chocolate cake with something that is less than 1cm²?
I could attend the cooking lessons since it was too crowded but the smell was amazing... I might take a day off and go there during a week day next year...

but even with the bite size samples, we were quite full from eating/sampling from all the different vendors...

hmm... full day visit next year? maybe i should consider that too, lol...

I'm not sure about the full day, but I will probably try to go during the week and not in the week-end

less croud might be worth it
esp. if that means Madame Setsuko will still have some green tea ganache in stock! :P
