Pastry Area

This year, the Salon du Chocolat is inaugurating a new 100% patisserie area under the patronage of Philippe Conticini.

Imagine 2,500 sqm of events, demonstrations and exhibitions totally dedicated to the art of patisserie!

The programme includes:

  • the greatest chefs on stage for virtuoso demonstrations. Discover here the line-up of chefs on the Pastry Show stage
  • an exhibition of the finest Christmas cakes and other monumental works
  • a glass kitchen created for the first Time at the Salon by Tradition Gourmande in which patissiers will make their creations in front of you, with a French region highlighted every day
  • a tasting room where you can quietly enjoy your favourite pastries
  • a major competition open to professionals and amateurs: the International French Patisserie Trophy organised by the National Confederation of French Artisan Patissiers, Chocolatiers, Confectioners and Ice Cream Makers
  • plus a series of book-signing sessions by your favourite authors, chefs and chocolatiers at the “Librairie Gourmande”

Patisserie is putting on its best-ever show at the Salon du Chocolat!
