This weekend they had the annual chocolate festival in downtown Vicenza called CioccolandoVi.
If you know me at all, you know there was no way that I was going to miss this! There were tons of tents set up with chocolate makers from around the area showing off their best chocolate. I was in chocolate heaven. And of course there were lots of free samples.
They had all sorts of creative ways to make chocolate. They had....
A tower of chocolate. This man is shaving chocolate pieces to
go on a piece of wafter with chocolate sauce and whip cream inside.
Blocks of Cremini
Chocolate in the shape of hammers, wrenches,
high heel shoes, drills, pliers, and other tools. They made tools
because the chocolate made them looked old and rusty.
A package of chocolate for your dentist.
I know it looks like cheese, but it is really chocolate!!
Logs of Chocolate
And much more!
Even Taylor partook in the chocolate festivities.
But it was me who truly enjoyed and appreciated it. :)
After walking around for over an hour tasting chocolate, Taylor had to get what he calls "real food." So we went to a little shop where they sold meat and cheese and he got some salami and cheese.
It was a great day for both of us! :)
