Over the weekend, I visited the cooking festival countless of times, all 3 days actually! This year edition was way better than last year's! For this edition of the cooking festival, the exhibition was completed with the acquisition of the new franchise of "Le Salon du Chocolat" in Lebanon. This partnership brought a lot more value to the visitor, I mean not everyone knows how to cook but who doesn't love chocolate?!
I enjoyed attending the cooking workshops featuring the most successful pastry chef in Lebanon, celebrity chefs, and other connoisseurs in the food industry.
The first day:
I attended the opening ceremony as well the chocolate fashion show, (follow me on snapchat @ prettycap for instant updates). I was really impressed with the chocolate fashion show; the dresses featured were designed by the most genuine Lebanese couture designers and a collaboration with the most successful pastry shops of Lebanon. The dresses included detailing in chocolate from chocolate studs (made of chocolate cones) to pearls and even embroideries of chocolate!
I also visited a bit of the exhibition because I had class at 2pm and could not stay longer.
The Second day:
I also visited in a rush and I bought a box of different delicious truffles for a talk I attended next at The Agenda Beirut. I passed by Carol Nader's stand who's the designer of my customized apron featuring on my cooking show on Duniati or on my channel. I love her new designs and I am planning on getting new stuff for my kitchen!
The Third day:
I spent most of my day there attending the recipe workshops with the chefs and I met Chef Richard who hosts his own cooking show on NewTV. I also enjoyed the chocolate praline stuffed gauffre of Galler, the official chocolate of the Belgium Monarchy.
