When I posted my preview of this event a couple of weeks ago, I was just a little excited by the prospect, and I’m pleased to say the event more than lived up to my expectations.
The brand new Longitude 0°8′ at Le Méridien was filled with chocolate lovers and cocktail lovers, and I don’t think any of them were disappointed. It was great to see so many people there, and chocolatiers Paul A. Young and Marc Demarquette even came down to try the cocktails that had been paired with their chocolates.
I’m not going to go into too much detail, as I’ve already written about it once – and frankly after six cocktails, I can’t remember some of it. But it was a fabulous evening, with just the right balance of drinks, chocolate & talking. Everything seemed to go smoothly thanks to the excellent planning Jennifer and the team at Le Méridien put in, and everyone left very happy. With goody bags.
This was probably my favourite event of Chocolate Week so far, but the big finale of the week, Chocolate Unwrapped, is taking place this weekend at Vinopolis. That promises to be even better than last year. Don’t miss it!
