Chocolate lovers, aficionados, fanatics and addicts can taste and experience the finest in artisan, gourmet and premium chocolate in one of the world’s great culinary metropolitan areas, when Pasadena hosts the 13th annual Los Angeles Chocolate Salon on September 29.

The event, the original artisan and premium chocolate event in Southern California, is sponsored by TasteTV and the International Chocolate Salon and will be held at the Pasadena Convention Center.

The salon features chocolatiers, confectioners, demonstrations, chef talks, and ongoing interviews by TasteTV’s Chocolate Television program – plus chocolate tasting, covered by your salon entry ticket.

Organizers call it the “premier major chocolate show in the Los Angeles area this millennium.”

The International Chocolate Salon was founded in 2007 by TasteTV and TCB Safe Publishing and Media.  At that time, TasteTV produced San Francisco International Chocolate Salon, the first major artisan and premium chocolate event on the West Coast. The event was followed by Chocolate Salons in Los Angeles, Seattle, Chicago, as well as other cities.

In 2009, the International Chocolate Salon began award competitions focusing on various categories of chocolates and confections. To this day, it is one of the premier international bodies celebrating and honoring artisan and premium chocolates and confections.

Tickets to Los Angeles Chocolate Salon 2019 are $10 to $20. For tickets, visit
