Chocolate fashion show wows at Salon du Chocolat in Lyon

(Euronews) Chocolate, pastries, marshmellows, nougat and… meat pie. As part of the global series of Salon du Chocolat, the biggest names in dessert and beyond came together under one roof last week in the French gastronomic capital of Lyon.

A sugared and sequined fashion show rounded-off the eighth edition of the hugely popular chocolate showcase, which featured more than 80 chocolatiers, pastry chefs and Michelin-starred talent dedicated to homemade confectionery and regional specialities.

The three-day event drew thousands of visitors and appearances by local celebrities Sebastien Bouillet and Philippe Bernachon, who were on site to show-off some of their iconic sweets and share tips on chocolate-making.
