If you are in the Perigord in October or November check out the following events.

Villefranche-du-Perigord-26th October, Chocolate Festival. I have recently read about a Chocolate Liqueur which combines the sweetness of chocolate with cream and Bourbon vanilla, sound delicious. It is called Briottets Liqueur de Chocolate.
