Harbour City Chocolate Trail 2017: All You Eat Is Love
Sunday, February 19, 2017
My long time readers know, I showcase Harbour City's Chocolate Trail every year on my blog! Click on these links to view 2016, 2015, 2014 (somehow I skipped it LOL), 2013. I would love to go to Hong Kong one year to see this in person, but for right now thank GOD for Instagram. This years theme was "All You Eat Is Love" (Beatles song: All You Need Is Love). For those unfamiliar, there's usually a LARGE DISPLAY (centerpiece) that greets visitors at this shopping center. This year the display was a large stream of chocolate (as if pouring), that featured a bakers hat, mixing bowl, spatula, rolling pin and bowl overflowing with chocolate & sprinkles. On each side of the display are marshmallows & a cube of chocolate with a spoon that says "All You Can Eat Is Love". People can actually sit on it and take pictures. Behind all of this is a baking kitchen that featured a table dripped with faux pink icing and pastel cups, saucers & dishes. If you look at the ceiling, wisks grace the top of this instillation (the wisks were used as lights). I'm always amazed, with what they come up with. As you go through the mall (shopping center), there are various scrolls with wisks/spatulas that displayed CHOCOLATE RECIPES. There are also faux chocolate art, in the shape of chocolate treats & chairs throughout the mall. I always find Chocolate Trail to be a great learning experience: there are cooking demonstrations, art, and world famous chocolatiers that show off their craft. Plus, it's FUN! I love that they are now tying it in with Chinese New Year & Valentine's Day. I love those heart shaped pink macarons from Dalloyau <3 and Sayvour HK Artisan Chocolates (pink chocolate roses & chocolate hearts with a message). Today is the last day to see this chocolate wonderland (Jan 19-Feb19), but this is an annual tradition. So I'm looking forward to what they come up with next year (2018).
