Set in one of the most gorgeous buildings in Sarlat, l’Ancien Evêché (on the left of the tourist office) is the weekend of chocolate, a dream come true for any chocoholic.
Close your eyes and pretend that you are walking up the stone staircase towards the salon full of delicious chocolate creations. If you can picture this you will begin to smell the aroma of chocolate which was gently being stirred in a large cauldron by a Master Chocolatier.
As with previous years the event was organised by the Rotary Club of Sarlat, this year it was for the benefit of the school of young fire fighters of Sarlat.
Salon of chocolate. Smaller displays of chocolate this year but still amazing and well worth a visit.
Wow, all made in chocolate. The apprentice shows their skill at the back and the Master’s is at the front.
A wonderful work of art created by the apprentice at Maison Massoulier.
Chocolate fish, rabbits and dogs.
In the next room are demonstrations, a film of chocolate making and my favourite, the children’s works of art depicting firefighters and chocolate.
I love the bars of chocolate coming out of the fire hose.
Event:- There is still time for a visit to the Chocolate Festival it is open until six today and on Sunday it is open from ten until six.
