New York Hosts Le Salon du Chocolat This Weekend

This weekend, New Yorkers weary of hurricanes and nor’easters are in for a treat as the Metropolitan Pavilion hosts the 15th annual Salon du Chocolat, an international event devoted to the addictive sweet. This international celebration of indulgence and artistry features 60 chocolatiers from various regions of the world, including France, Brazil, the United Kingdom and the U.S., all of whom showcase their unique and surprising creations. Live demonstrations and tastings are complemented by a fantasy fashion show, with artisans offering “couture” runway interpretations of garments crafted in cocoa. After a smash opening in Paris last weekend and the New York event, the fair will travel to Cannes and Seoul. Salon du Chocolate takes place from November 9th to the 11th.
