Showcasing the latest in chocolate, pastry and confectionery, Salon du Chocolat Beirut is marking its fifth anniversary this November with a ‘Carnival’ theme. Welcoming more than 15,000 visitors to Seaside Arena, this year’s event promises to be even more spectacular than previous editions. The popular chocolate fashion show will showcase the work of Lebanese designers and renowned pastry chefs, who will team up to create beautiful chocolate gowns for the occasion. Lebanese designer Karine Tawil, founder of fashion brand Karoline Lang, and chef Charles Azar will be collaborating on the star dress. In addition, a chocolate sculpture by artist Anachar Basbous will be unveiled at the show. Visitors will be able to browse more than 60 stands, attend interactive workshops with over 30 of Lebanon’s top pastry chefs and consultants at the Choco Demo, and participate in chocolate sculpture, cake design and bûche making competitions.
