As announced on our first post, I am glad to present you some of the very best events in Florence. Let’s start with a tasteful event: the 9th edition of the Home Made Chocolate Fair in Florence.
It’s the first time this delectable exhibition is taking place in Piazza Santa Maria Novella, just in front of our hotel. After several successful editions, this year the organizers have decided to move it to this square, since it’s very close to the main railway station (and bus terminals too). So it would be easier to get here from every part of Florence, and Italy!
The Chocolate fair will last 10 days: during this time you will have the opportunity to taste the best chocolates from national and international chocolatiers: ganaches, chocolate barks, biscuits, cakes and much more! No matter if you prefer dark chocolate, white chocolate or milk chocolate… your senses will be delighted with all those flavours!
More than 40 exhibitors will show you the amazing variety of chocolate making.
Besides the fair there will be some cooking classes to learn how to cook with chocolate and how to combine it with other ingredients. If you like wine, you can participate to a special tasting that combines wine & chocolate.
Special programs for kids are available, such as chocolate labs and hunting.
