Arguably the most decadent food event of all, the Chocolate Festival runs from Friday 26th– Sunday 28th March. This event will feature more fine chocolate companies, chocolate related products and more demonstrations, following on two successful chocolate festivals at Southbank Centre last year.
Dozens of stalls will focus on the various and exciting areas of the dark and delicious world of chocolate, inviting you to experience everything from making, shaping, drinking and eating the lovely stuff.
Take home a kit and get hands on in the comfort of your kitchen, slurp down hot chocolate as you browse the stalls or discover how chocolate is used in an exciting array of savoury treats.
Workshops and demonstrations give you a chance to get involved:
Try making chocolate truffles from raw cocoa
Watch master chocolatier Damian Allsop in action
Learn about the health benefits of chocolate and how to include chocolate in savoury dishes.
Attendees can also browse an array of tempting chocolate books and meet the authors at book signings.
Companies include top chocolatiers such as William Curley, Damian Allsop and Paul Wayne Gregory, as well as renowned chocolate companies such as Rococo and Hotel Chocolat. If you are a chocoholic, or you know someone that is, then you cannot afford to miss this event, and snap up some unique Easter treats
