A SLICE OF CHOCOLATE HEAVEN AT THIS YEAR’S CHOCFEST

There’s a treat in store for chocolate lovers when ChocFest returns to Melton Mowbray from 17-18 November 2018.

ChocFest is one of the UK’s most popular chocolate festivals and at this year’s event, there will be some of the finest chocolate and associated food and drink products to taste and buy from some of the UK’s best local producers.

Exhibitors will be offering chocolates, chocolate cakes, pies, crepes, brownies, tarts, liqueurs, doughnuts, macarons, desserts, marshmallows, biscuits and even chocolate pizzas, kebabs, moonshine, mead, wine and beer. Other stands will be selling cakes, pies, champagne, wine and other goods in the run up to Christmas. New for this year is a dedicated Spirits Hall with gin, whisky, vodka, rum and liqueurs.

Workshops bookable in advance will be available for adults and kids with Leicestershire-based chocolatier, Nenette Chocolates who will be conducting workshops on champagne truffles, just in time for Christmas. There will also be tutored tastings including gin and chocolate, and a full programme of talks and demonstrations in the ChocFest Theatre including a crab and white chocolate risotto by Master Chocolatier and Chef, David Greenwood-Haigh.

Tickets are priced at £5 (£4 in advance). Children under 16 enter free. Advance tickets are on sale from the Visit Leicester centre in Leicester and Ye Olde Pork Pie Shoppe in Melton Mowbray, or online from www.ukchocfest.co.uk

Matthew O’Callaghan from the Melton Mowbray Food Partnership, organiser of ChocFest said: “ChocFest is one of the few national food festivals dedicated to chocolate. We’ll have products available from some of the finest chocolatiers and related food and drink producers in the country at this year’s event. It’ll be a fantastic event to pick up some early Christmas presents, learn more about the art of chocolate making or simply come and enjoy the chocolate and other food and drink available.”

There is coach parking available on site for up to 50 coaches and group offers are available on request. Contact [email protected] for more details.
