I wanted to highlight the impending arrival of my favorite culinary event of the year, the Chocolate Show. I look forward to the Chocolate Show with giddy anticipation all year and this year’s event is almost upon us. The 11th Annual New York Chocolate Show will be held November 7-9. For the price of your entry to the show (tickets are $28 this year), you can sample chocolate to your heart’s (if not your stomach’s) delight. We are not talking about Hershey’s chocolate, but 50+ boutique chocolatiers from around the country and, in some cases, around the world. The event can get crowded so I recommend trying to go at off hours. Bring an empty stomach and some spending money – you won’t be able to resist bringing home some of the divine treats that you try. I will come back with a full report after my visit on November 7 (approximately 215 hours from now).
