From August 31 to September 2, Gourmet Show and Chocolate and Cacao Salon were held at the World Trade Center in Mexico City.

Chocolate and Cacao Salon

Plenty of tastings featuring dark chocolate, cacao liqueurs, chocolates from Mexico and other countries, and even indulgent aphrodisiac chocolates were some of the highlights of this year's exhibition.

Past and present were gathered since traditional Mexican traditions regarding chocolate met with chocolate fashion trends such as an edible chocolate dress, designer Jimena Téllez Montoya's creation and a jewelry exhibition by Miriam Ortega.
