2010 Chocolate Show New York Review

After seeing all those gorgeous chocolate creations, you may think there is no more to the show. Oh, well there is lots more to this show! I did read from others that samples were not plentiful and you had to pay for some before but at this years show, all were free. They were usually small tastes but you were tasting all day so small was good. I had also heard that folks who tried to attend on the Sunday couldn't get in because tickets at the door were sold out. I highly suggest you purchase your tickets in advance should you attend the 2011 show. They may use the Javitz Center which would give them more room. Enough small talk...on to some chocolate......
lovely banner as you entered the show as well as the smell was amazing
yes a chocolate train 
this is like a really big tease....don't ya think? look at those truffles!!
the National Confectioners Association's Chocolate Council was on hand  
Chocolate comes from the tropics where it is harvested from the fruit of cacao trees. It grows on small orchards in Latin America, West Africa and South Asia.  
more truffles did you say? Le Chef Patissier is your truffle maker  
these are very affordable truffles and so yummy!! 
the camera really liked them as well  
we had more than one sample you can imagine
I did not write down the name of this stand but what amazing chocolate they had to dip with whatever your heart desires.......
these cookies looked so yummy and were packaged just lovely 

the tree has arrived in Rockefeller Center! has been trimmed and getting ready for it's big event on Tuesday, November 30th from 7 to 9pm eastern standard time.......

Oh dear, I'm having heart palpitations just looking and drooling over these pictures!! I'm sure the main audience were women, no?

I would actually say a good mix of men and women as well as kids. It was a great show for professionals as well with many demonstrations(more posts to come!!) for learning those baking skills. This is the first post of many for this show...many great vendors will be showcased on this blog. :)
