The mention of Easter brings to mind holidays ...and chocolate! In other words, young gourmets and high-heeled foodistas are on the starting blocks. Where can we live out your chocolate fantasies? We have the answer. Drum rolls! Beaugrenelle is organising a “chocolate show” worthy of findingyourself on the #foodporn and #chocolatelover feeds of Instagram.
COCOA MANIA SHOW
After its furiously stylish festival, the new landmark of Parisian coolness is morphing into a temple of cocoa. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, this is where it’s happening.
Starting on Thursday, you can show up with the kids. The show begins with a monumental exhibition created by 3 real pastry chefs in the atrium.
The maestros used more than 40 kilos of chocolate and spent more than 22h making the segiant sculptures that seem to have stepped straight out of Alice in Wonderland. Great art.
The must? Going there on Monday for the massive (and free) distribution of chocolates all over Beaugrenelle, from 3pm to 5pp. A golden alibi for a shop-op or movie outing with the family.
