Chocolate Week, London 2014

TEMPLESPA The Most Revealing - A New Oxygen Peel - New product launch

Last month was London Chocolate Week (Oct 13-19 2014), there were hundreds of events around the country to celebrate; including talks, tastings, and demonstrations.

The week culminated with the Chocolate Show London at Olympia West (17th to 19th October), bringing the best of the industry together under one roof.

My favourite part was the chocolate catwalk show (Salon du Chocolat) which took place every day of the show.

The entire show wasn’t bad either with Chocolate Theatre hosting stars like Michelin-starred Atul Kochhar, Great British Bake Off champions Edd Kimber and John Whaite and chocolatiers Paul Young and Will Torrent, who showcased the diversity of chocolate in a series of live demos.

Other highlights included a behind the scenes exhibition from the Charlie and The Chocolate Factory musical, visits from the cast and a performance by Willy Wonka himself on the gala evening.

It was a magical weekend and I can’t wait for next year. Here are the highlights including images from the catwalk show.
