Why you should go. Indulgent, decadent, rich, dark, silky and creamy. Those words become emotions when you taste the first morsel of chocolate. There are no other words to describe that feeling. The Big Chocolate Show is everything that one could wish for. Enjoy tastings, cooking demos, classes and entertainment at this choco-holic paradise.
