If you’re a big chocolate fan this is THE chocolate event to go to in Zurich. Not only will you find all the latest information about chocolate, the newest chocolate creations and innovations, as well as information about firm choccie favourites, but each day there will be a chocolate fashion show at 5pm – yes, really! The models will be wearing clothes and designs made up of chocolate. Quite a high risk strategy you may think, especially under the hot stage lights – and when you see the designs themselves you are sure to be even more impressed.
There is lots more on offer too for the whole family, with workshops and lectures, live cookery demonstrations by top chocolatiers and tastings special workshops for children too. In fact with all the top Swiss chocolatiers present you will be inspired and amazed by what they can achieve with chocolate.
