October 16th – 24th

During the third week of October, Perugia will turn into chocolate city for the 11th edition of the Eurochocolate event. Many events will be taking place such as: the election of a “ChocoMayor”, chocolate shows, tastings and samples, and much much more, to promote the knowledge of chocolate. Anyone with a sweet tooth, a love for chocolate, or just looking for a good time should not miss this show!.

Can you please post some more info here? I checked out the site, but no English information available. From the few pages I looked at nothing indicates that the big names will be present – which, honestly, make me suspicious that the chocolate in question does not hold the quality I (we) expect.

The ‘orginal’ European chocolate festival was started i Perugia 1993.
Chantal Coadys ‘The Chocolate Companion’ won the Chocolate ‘Oscar’ Award for Best Chocolate Book from the Eurochocolate Festival in Perugia. If I remember right you can she writes about the festival in her book ‘Real Chocolate’ were you also can find a few recepies from her dear friend Paul DeBondt. Paul DeBondt is a masterchocolatier living in Tuscany and he has appeared on the festival, sharing his skills. This is a worldfamous festival appreciated among chocolatier and others all over the World. Eurochocolate today has spread to other Italian citys.

Maybe you are opposed to the EU, but many are totally supporters of the European Dream.

Enjoy the freedom of being European!

i don’t understand the problem with the name. calling something euro or european does not automatically mean support for the EU.
aside from that i don’t find that a forum dedicated to fine chocolate is the right place for such discussion, regardless of opinion.

I agree Alex. Eurochocolate is just a name on a website. Lets continue talk about chocolate.
