Dear Parler Paris Reader,
The invitation to the 10th Annual Salon du Chocolate was sealed by a chocolate colored silk ribbon and that was only the beginning for this first class affair at Hall 5 of Paris Expo, Métro Porte de Versailles.
Almost 150 exhibitors are showing off their “créations” now through Monday (what a great way to celebrate Halloween and All Saints Day!) — all in white, milk and dark chocolates, in every imaginable taste and style configuration. We tasted chocolate green tea truffles offered by Japanese women in traditional dress, chewy fudgy macaroons, biscuits and fruits dipped in white, milk and dark chocolate sauce served in microwave-able glass pots, mini-timbales of rich fruit compote topped in chocolate, chocolate and anise liqueur and my favorite — Belgian chocolate bars laced with lavender.
Mayor Delanoë and his entourage breezed in for a front row seat at the annual fashion show where designers’ creations from the past 10 years were modeled by tall gorgeous women accompanied by the designers themselves and even one “petite fille” came on stage in a dress made of “Smarties” by Nestle.
Along with the Statue of Liberty in larger than life size were chocolate sculptures of the Eiffel Tower, a Japanese Pagoda and host of others. A chef at one stand was carving a pumpkin from a huge solid block of chocolate. At first glance, you would have thought that the corner filled with beautiful flowers was a Paris “fleuriste,” but on second look, the flowers were solid chocolate! And an artist from New York displayed paintings of Marilyn Monroe and Elizabeth Taylor made from chocolate paint that he admitted he has taken to cleaning the brushes with his mouth!
So, go hungry, take in the fabulous aromas, talk to the masters of chocolate creation and indulge!

Each week Paris Property Picks features a range of properties which we believe are on the market at the time of writing. These properties are featured in order to give readers a sample of what is currently available and a working example of prices being asked in various districts of Paris. As we are not a real estate agency, these properties do not constitute a sales listing.
