Chocolate Unwrapped 2010

Posted by in Features on October 17 2010 | Leave A Comment

This weekend saw the highlight of Chocolate Week, the Chocolate Unwrapped show at Vinopolis in the heart of London’s foodie district.

There were exhibitors large and small, from Hotel Chocolat and Thorntons to Matcha Chocolat and Nicky Grant.

Our favourite chocolate-enrobed-cake company, Lucky’s had a stand that could only be described as ‘a bit bonkers’, while Patchi injected some of their own middle eastern style into the stand directly opposite.

Throughout the day, there were talks from the likes of Paul A. Young, Thorntons’ Keith Hurdman and Hotel Chocolat’s Angus Thirlwell. There was a great turnout, and enough to keep visitors fed and entertained for a good couple of hours. Me? I stayed for six.

I’m told next year’s event is going to be even bigger, occupying another room at Vinopolis, but if you can’t wait that long, enjoy our short video and photo gallery.

A fitting conclusion to an amazing Chocolate Week!

  1. I’m gutted i couldn’t make it – especially as I bought at ticket! Oh well, maybe next year? How much was there to taste?

    Plenty to taste – although my perception may have been skewed by my press badge and lovely chocolate people thrusting goodies into my hand. :)

  3. Looks amazing! Wish I could have been there!

  4. Wowzer! This is interesting. Wait till Mossie Henebrey hears about it ;-) It doesn’t tie in with the llitte references to Waherfo’ in Chandler’s letters though. Many thanks for posting this. Really appreciate it.Regarding hurling, surely after their elevation to the Div 3 NFL Waterford is now officially a big-ball county?
