The Smooth Festival of Chocolate, Sep 2016

Sydney brought out the sunny weather again for this year’s Smooth Festival of Chocolate.

Zumbo’s was a favourite, with the Gaytime Macaron already sold out on the first day.

The queue for the Lindt Tent got longer as the day wore on, with customisable chocolate bars, a host of Lindt chocolate products, and fresh coffee and desserts on the menu. Price-wise, the chocolates were a bit steep, especially considering you could purchase them in the supermarket for almost half the price.

If you were a little sweeted-out, there was more than enough savoury, including a night noodle market favourite Hoy Pinoy, with its towering column of smoke and trademark queue.

Ilias the Greek was also selling Salt and Feta balls, and had a mean chocolate and macadamia Halva.

The Chocolatier’s Quarters had the most interesting stalls with gluten free, lactose free and organic chocolates on offer.

I couldn’t resist Chocolab’s Tiny Teddy chocolate bar, and was rewarded with a block of smooth Belgian chocolate, milk crispearls, brownie bites that were deliciously moist and (of course) chocolate tiny teddies.

There was also an amazing artwork display, composed out of Lindt wrappers.

And last but not least, a beautiful spread of cakelettes and a huge 4 tier cake from Baked by Joanne.
