October marks the return of The Chocolate Show to London – a three-day extravaganza celebrating the mighty cocoa bean and all it creates. The festival at Kensington Olympia will feature plenty of opportunities for eating, buying and learning about one of our favourite sweet treats.
The Chocolate Show will feature workshops, stalls, celebrity chef demonstrations, tastings, sculptures, pop-up chocolate restaurant and a chocolate bar. Some of the UK and the world’s finest chocolatiers and pastry makers are taking part, including John Whaite, Nadiya Hussain, Donald Wressell, Paul A. Young, Cherish Finden and Erik Houlihan-Jong.
