Man, I must be losing it, I thought yesterday was Friday...
Since my yearly trip home (Hawaii) will be a little later in the year, I went to check out the Salon du Chocolat at the JR Kyoto Isetan yesterday. The good thing about going to the one in Kyoto was that there were way less people.
The space for the event was about the same size as the one in Tokyo--which I went to last year before I went to Hawaii.
With my hesokuri, I got to pick up 10 different chocolates from different chocolatiers, mostly from France.
Here is what I got: Bernachon (France) 3 palet d'or, Yves Thuries (France) 3 macaron, Camprini (France) 4 piece bon-bons, Patisserie Kubler (France) 4 piece bon-bons, Mazet praslines, Pierre Ledent (Belgium) 3 piece bon-bons, Bonnat (France) 3 piece bon-bons, Van Dender (Belgium) 3 piece bon-bons, Quatrieme Chocolat Shin (Japan) 4 piece bon-bons, Gateau des Bois (Japan) 3 piece bon-bons.
It is a good thing that most of these have expiry dates that are several weeks away, I'll post more on them as I eat them...stay tuned.
Okay...now, have a good weekend!
