Salon Du Chocolat Zurich

If you’re a big chocolate fan this is THE chocolate event to go to in Zurich.  Not only will you find all the newest and latest information about chocolate, the latest chocolate creations and innovations, as well as firm choccie favourites, but each day there will be a chocolate fashion show at 5pm – yes, really!  The models will be wearing clothes and designs made up of chocolate.  Quite a high risk strategy you may think, especially under the hot stage lights – and when you see the designs themselves you are sure to be even more impressed.
