Valrhona prepares its Fifth Hot Chocolate Festival, which will be held for the first time at the Salon du Chocolat NY, on Saturday, November 16, from 1:30 to 3:00 pm. For Valrhona Chief Operations Officer, Emmanuelle Brun, “with Le Salon du Chocolat expanding to New York, it presented a wonderful opportunity for us to partner with an organization whose values and love of chocolate align with our own.” A limited number of $10 tickets to the Hot Chocolate Festival will be available onsite with admission to the Salon.
Some of the most famous pastry chefs in the Big Apple will demonstrate their talent by creating innovative hot chocolate recipes using different types of Valrhona chocolate. Attendees can enjoy these delicacies, immortalize the experience in a fun photo booth, and collaborate with a good cause, since a portion of the ticket sales will go to the Food Recovery Network, a nonprofit organization that unites students at colleges and universities to fight food waste and hunger.
The renowned pastry establishments participating in the festival include Épicerie Boulud, Gramercy Tavern, Little Spain Mercado, Mah-Ze-Dar Bakery, Tao, 21 Club, Jungsik, La Maison du Chocolat, The Lambs Club, Almondine, Christopher Elbow Chocolates, the soon -to-be-opened Coco Safar, Estuary Brasserie & Bar, and Great Performances.
