An iconic festival celebrating one of the most popular ingredients on the planet: Chocolate. The first event held in Portugal and, thus, the oldest, dedicated to this delicacy.
In this festival you can find all kinds of art in chocolate, either in sculptures duly worked by sculptors who are experts in this raw material, or in original tablets, unusual bonbons, or in drinks and foods that reinvent this product in multiple ways.
Several activities related to the sector of catering, pastry, confectionery and bonbons are high points in this event, which is proud to be the most notable in its area. In this way, professional and academic contests seek to develop more concepts and new realities for a sector that still has a lot to offer and discover. The less knowledgeable also have the opportunity to discover tricks of the trade and learn some secrets in courses and workshops given by the most accomplished chocolatiers who thus present their know-how. On stage, many professionals demonstrate their skills in sessions where originality or creativity prevails.
In a space always full of surprises, gourmand storefronts of the most diverse delicacies in chocolate are spread, whose exhibitors bring from different parts of the world and our country, demonstrating the best that is done with this versatile ingredient.
A festival to know, see and eat more chocolate, without guilt or sin.
