When we think of quality chocolate often we think of Swiss or Dutch versions... however Italy has a strong tradition in the production of chocolate and Turin (Torino), my lovely city, was the birthplace of Italian chocolate production.
The art of chocolate making is celebrated each year with CioccolaTO', a two week event held in the month of March (6-15/03/09) that is devoted entirely to chocolate: more than 50 exhibitors set up their stalls in the city centre, enabling you to discover, sample and purchase many different types of chocolate in many different forms. At the same time there are also meetings and Taste Workshops, courtesy of Slow Food, giving you the opportunity to learn more about the food of the gods. CioccolaTO’ is also a festival, with music and performances that celebrate the cultural aspects of chocolate plus an all night event known as Notte Fondente.
And if you are still unable to resist, purchase ChocoPass and try the chocolate specialities of Turin (Torino) and Piemonte... with ChocoPass you can taste the finest chocolate products in historical cafes, confectionery shops and chocolate factories: gianduiotti, pralines and various cakes... a real treat for your taste buds! The booklets of ChocoPass vouchers offer you either 22 delicious samples in 3 days for only € 12,00.
