It is the most important quality of today's consumers.
At the “Pastry Show” booth, every hour, a chocolate master and his team introduced the exclusive production secrets and shared various chocolate dishes with the audience. In the chocolate hand-baking workshop, there are professional dessert masters who teach the audience and hand-practice the unique skills. The organizers also opened a chocolate class for children, teaching children to make chocolates and helping them understand the fun of cocoa beans.
This year's Chocolate Salon specially invited producers from cocoa origins such as Cameroon, Ecuador, Peru, Madagascar and Dominica to give viewers a better understanding of chocolate from the source. Visitors can not only see a variety of "healthy" chocolates here, but also see some new products such as chocolate-based skin care products and masks.
