Celebrating in style for the first time in Dubai, National Chocolate Day was marked with a chocolate banquet, hosted by specialist chocolatiers ChoCo’a. With displays created by the head of ChoCo’a’s creative team, Alia Halawi, those in attendance enjoyed a huge branch-like chocolate sculpture which served as a display for a new line of hand crafted chocolates. These were introduced by Choco’a’s very own Chef, Sanaa Katir in collaboration with Chef Frederic Legras from EMF.
Among those enjoying the celebrations were prominent chefs from hotels, leaders from organisations such as The Chocolate Academy, students and VIP clients.
Speaking of the event, the owner of ChoCo’a, Assem Hamzeh, said: “We wanted to create the perfect ambiance for our fans and valued clients to taste, indulge and discover the ChoCo’a experience. Most important was that it be a fun day that left chocolate lovers spoilt for choice and coming back for more. I believe we achieved this with flying colours!”
