It's the second week of November and guess who's having the Best Week Ever??
That's right, this weekend is the 10th Annual Chocolate Show in New York ..."the ultimate festival of world class exhibitors, chef demonstrations, chocolate fashion and showpieces, tantalizing gifts, activities for children, and more!"
Though the fashion show took place last night, the rest of the event, located in the Metropolitan Pavillion & Altman Building (125 W 18th st), lasts all weekend long and includes demonstrations by top pastry chefs and chocolate makers, chocolate tastings, over 65 top chocolate brands & booths, chocolate activities for children and adults, Barnes & Noble cookbook store with author signings, and Haute Coulture dresses and accessories made with chocolate. Sounds delicious. We hope to make it to check it out. In the meantime, NY Mag gave us a taste of one of the fashion designs created by the pastry chef of Butter, Zac Young, and designer Nicole Romano:
Titled "Bakewear" the dress is made of 600 black and white chocolate, zebra-striped shortbread cookies held together with Super Glue. Model Ashley Young will be sporting the dress on the CBS Early Show today. Said Young: "She's going to be outside in the freezing cold with her ta-tas getting all hard, breaking my cookies!" To test the duribility of his creation, he advised her to "Pile so that your vajayjay drops to the floor!":
