published on 09/10/2016, dans Sezz Paris
Enjoy a stay at Sezz Paris and give in to temptation during a visit to Salon du Chocolat. The famous chocolate fair takes place at the Exhibition Centre, Porte de Versailles from 28th October to 1st November this year. Give in to the call of sweetness and join gourmands and chocolate lovers as they sample delicious chocolate products from 5 continents.
Forging a link between men
This exceptional product was discovered over 2,000 years ago in Mexico – and it still hasn’t finished revealing its many mysteries. A product of the cocoa bean, chocolate continues to surprise us with its fragrance and flavour while master chocolatiers dazzle us with their increasingly ambitious creations. Chocolate is a true cultural treasure that forges a real link between the people on the Ivorian, Brazilian or Peruvian plantations where it is harvested and passionate consumers around the world. It relieves stress and is deemed an excellent anti-fatigue and anti-depression aid. Chocolate is valued for its anti-oxidant properties - it is rich in flavonoids and promotes overall good health. So many good reasons to give in and fly straight to Porte de Versailles!
Two floors of goodness
The Exhibition is laid out over two floors and covers 20,000 m2. This thrilling event explores chocolate’s many flavours and creative uses and offers you a unique opportunity to discover and taste many exclusive cocoa-based products that cannot be found elsewhere. Salon du Chocolat will feature nearly 500 French and international participants. Professional pastry chefs, confectioners, department heads, designers and world famous chocolatiers will present their latest creations. The show will also be punctuated by numerous activities and events; take part in culinary workshops led by cocoa experts who will share their favourite recipes or enjoy conferences, events and tastings. Don’t forget the Cocoa Fashion Show with its parade of gowns made entirely from chocolate! You’ll also have the chance to discover different cocoa producing countries each day at the Cocoa Show podium. This outstanding exhibition will tempt even the most jaded palate and it’s one that you won’t want to miss during your stay at Sezz Paris.
