Chocolate Fair Returns Feb. 1221
Ten long, sweet days of chocolate of all kinds. It is precisely this the (only) ingredient of the
Chocolate Fair taking place in Santa Maria Novella from Friday February 12 to Sunday February
This year edition, the 12th of the event, presents an important novelty, as the organizers are, for
the first time in the history of the fair, all women. Caterina, Veronica, Beatrice and Ilaria have, in
fact, prepared an event in which the most renowned ‘artisans of chocolate’ from all over the Italy
will showcase their products in a variety of forms to ‘taste’ the feedback of consumers.
Conveniently organized in coincidence of St Valentine’s Day, the festival offers patrons a
different aspect to just seeing and tasting the products on display by allowing them to participate
in various activities. Workshops and games for kids will be as usual an important part of the
event, while industry professionals will host cooking classes to teach how to create desserts and
discover the secrets to the art of chocolatemaking.
In the spirit of the event, local restaurants have collaborated with festival organizers to prepare
entire meals based on chocolate for the public to enjoy over the period of the festival, with the
intention of discovering the many and unusual uses of the cocoa bean and its products.
