All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt.
And with some encouragement from my husband I went to see The Luxury Chocolate Show last week. By myself, mostly (I met with a couple of our friends as well who mentioned the event to me). The event celebrates anything and everything about chocolate. Since I was feeling under the weather that day my husband thought it would be even better for me to go because I love chocolates.
There were numerous chocolatiers, demonstrations, wine and chocolate pairing sessions, and some contests as well. My 10x sampler tickets were put into good use as I was able to taste really yummy chocolate and get a bottle of water (just like what my mother used to tell me when I was a child). Since I was pretty much free what I did is I looked around the exhibition grounds first to see what the exhibitors have, and then bought my sampler tickets. I walked around again before deciding where I specifically want to do some tasting, and where I want to buy chocolates.
At the end of the show I get to take home a free cake pop recipe book (which I am excited to use because I have a cake pop maker at home). I also saw an electronic survey at the exit which I thought was really convenient and an effective way to get feedback real time.
