Indulgence is an entire weekend dedicated to chocolate, and sometimes, that happens outside your own lounge room. Sydney's two-day chocolate extravaganza, the Smooth Festival of Chocolate, returns for 2017 with a weekend live demonstrations, specially crafted desserts and large-scale chocolate sculptures.
Taking over the sidewalks, lawns and streets of The Rocks beside Circular Quay, the festival will bring together over 100 artisan chocolatiers, pastry chefs and ice creameries for a celebration of all things chocolate. Local favourites Gelato Messina and Black Star Pastry will be serving up their best, while the folks at Mr Black will host a pop-up espresso martini bar serving Espresso Jar-Tinis topped with Nutie doughnuts.
There'll be a 'jungle' created entirely of chocolate, thanks to Josophan's Fine Chocolate, and chocolate beer, as well as Domuts for your furry friends. Chocoholics, expect a sweet weekend of decadence Willy Wonka himself would approve of.
