chocolate-week-2011This week is most certainly pleasing for foodies as not only is it National Curry Week but also Chocolate Week- a favourite amongst those with a sweet tooth.

Chocolate Week is in its eighth year and celebrates the wonderful art of chocolate. From the way in which chocolate is made to how people use it to cook, bake and even create works of art. Chocolate sculptures and expensive edible creations are considered highly skilled art pieces today and admired by many.

To confirm such I read an article this morning featuring a diamond finished chocolate desert costing a whopping £22,000 which really is far too good to eat.

Heading back to reality… the most exciting part of Chocolate Week for most, including me, is the opportunity to taste lots of delicious chocolate. Thanks to Chocolate Week’s partners there is plenty of opportunity to do so.

Having teamed up with a handful of chocolatiers including high street favourite Thorntons, Hotel Chocolat and fair trade chocolate giants Divine Chocolate Week are hosting a week of events for chocolate lovers across the UK. Events include testing session and afternoon tea with extra special chocolate treats – Find events near you by clicking here.

Upon reading about Chocolate Week I discovered that family favourite Thorntons are in fact celebrating 100 years of wonderful Thorntons’ chocolate, which really is lovely news. As a box of Thorntons has always symbolised a celebration for me and many others I’m sure.  

Chocolate Unwrapped

To finish off a rather specular week of chocolaty fun Chocolate Week are hosting the ‘Chocolate Unwrapped Show’ this weekend in Vinopolis, London. Here visitors can visit a miniature chocolate factory, view stunning chocolate exhibits including chocolate sculptures and hear from leading chocolatiers including William Curley and Keith Hurdman on how to truly make the most out of delicious chocolate.

Sounds far too good to be true- Enjoy!
