Your sweet tooth is in for a treat. The Big Chocolate Show is coming to Manhattan on September 29-30 at the New Yorker Hotel, and bringing top-tier confections, expert chocolatiers and tons of gourmet tasting programs with it. Best part? It's family friendly.
This is the city’s biggest chocolate show, so it draws the likes of chocolate artisans, chefs and experts from around the globe. Whether you’re there to chow down or learn about your favorite guilty pleasure, this event has something for every craving.
The Big Chocolate Show is rich with tasty exhibitors, like VillaKuyaya from Ecuador, Brooklyn Born Chocolate, the Euro-style Chocolat Moderne, Long Island’s Belgian-inspired Chocology Unlimited and many more. The showcase will host nearly 100 exhibitors over the two-day stretch, including mixologists, chocolate experts, celebrity chefs, spa and cosmetic experts and restaurateurs.
Tasting sessions will run all weekend long. Java junkies can sign up for Chocolate & Coffee Tasting: Understanding the Roast to explore the flavors behind single-origin coffees and chocolates, while winos will want to put Fine Flavors: How to Perfect Your Wine & Chocolate Pairing Skills at the top of their list. If you want to get your hands dirty in the kitchen, Chocolate Lollipop Making, Hand-Dipped Truffle Making and Holy Molé Learn to Make Tamales will do the trick. There’s even a next-level STEM class all techies will adore: Futuristic Food: 3-D Chocolate Printing Experience.
Both the early and late sessions on Saturday and Sunday (Sept. 29-30, times vary) are $25 a pop. Tasting sessions vary in price. The New Yorker Hotel is located at 481 8th Ave., New York, NY 10001. To stay posted on event updates and announcements, sign up for The Big Chocolate Show Newsletter.
