The 13th Annual NYC Chocolate Fashion Show

The 13th Annual New York City Chocolate Show kicked off last night with a Chocolate Fashion Show. While not quite as spectacular as the fashion show at the original Salon du Chocolat in Paris, the models sporting chocolate couture still wowed the audience. Among the pastry chefs who participated last night was Top Chef: Just Desserts contestant, Zac Young.


The New York City Show is being held through Sunday, November 14 at the Metropolitan Pavilion at 125 W. 18th Street (between 6th & 7th Avenue). Tickets are available online for $28.00. In addition to last night's Fashion Show, the event includes a marketplace with about 70 chocolatiers, as well as demonstrations and workshops from chocolatiers and pastry chefs, including Jacques Torres, Nick Malgieri, François Payard, Johnny Iuzzini, Zac Young, and Carl Warner (the man who does the cool food landscapes -- "Foodscapes").
