Nine years later a lot of things have changed. I still wander through the stands, alone this time (she moved to Milan) in a rainy evening. Curiosity is not the same, but now I better know the few products that deserve the efforts: reflex camera, screws and bolts, shoes, cds all made by chocolate do not surprise me anymore and are better for the sight than the taste.
I’ll also give a chance to carrube Modica chocolate from Karrua even if my favourite Modica chocolate will always be the one from Antica Dolceria Bonajuto.
It’s a pity that some of the best chocolate producers of Bologna, like Roccati and Majani, missed this fair but you can still visit their amazing shops: the fist one, in via Clavature 17, seems like a Paris jewelry. Majani shop, in Via De Carbonesi 5, is really old and traditional shop with wood made furniture.
So my suggestion is to walk around, take some photos of the funny chocolate creations but don't be fooled by appearence. But above all, to enjoy the spirit of the fair, share it with the one you love.
I just wanted to say, I love your blog! I'm American, but I'll be studying abroad in Bologna for a year starting in August. Your blog has been a great place to discover different restaurants and things to do. And I can't wait for this coming Cioccoshow =]
I'm glad that you've chosen my city for your studies! I hope you can follow my suggestions and of course if you need any tips about everything...well, just ask!
Thanks for getting back to me =]. Not sure if you have posted about this, but I would love if you could make a guide, or give me suggestions, to some awesome vegetarian-friendly restaurants in Bologna!
Sure, sounds like a new post to write!
One place that i reccomend for veggie (but not only for them) is Zenzero Bistrot. Read my review here: http://www.tastebologna.net/1/...
Thank you! That looks like a delicious restaurant =].
