Enchanting Second Salon du Chocolat de Cannes

From November 23 to 25, 2013, the Salon du Chocolat de Cannes, the largest in the French Riviera, will turn the Palais des Festivals into a paradise of chocolat sweets, in the preamble to the holiday season.

The city of Cannes, famous for its glamorous Film Festival, its stars, its glitter and its palaces, will roll out the red carpet this time in honor of Master Chocolatiers and Pastry Chefs from the region to put in the spotlights their expertise and showcase their talent to treat and dazzle the public.
During these three days of gourmandise, visitors will discover the different kinds of chocolate, attend many events where the chocolate will be staged, and admire the models of the not-to-be-missed “Chocolate Trends” parade. This year, the haute couture chocolate fashion show will reveal a prestigious collection of ephemeral models designed by talented tandems of designers and chocolatiers.
On the theme “Le Cirque Chic, le Défilé Choc“, a world of extraordinary characters, minstrels, beggars, dancers, children and clowns … a dream world inhabited of dream and wonder will enchant young and adults.
