OWM - Chocovilla

Posted by Kero at Sunday, August 23, 2009
Our Weekend Memoirs

The weekend was spent visiting Chocovilla at Dubai Festival City. Consisting of a living room, library, bedroom, kitchen, and even a garden, the miniature chocolate home gives information on the origin of chocolate, various chocolate recipes, and live chocolate-making sessions.

This Smarties creation greets you at the entrance of the villa.

The dining table is covered with Nestle Gold. The centerpiece as well is all edible.

The highlight of the event is live chocolate carving done by multi-awarded Filipino artist, Henry Abigan. he is currently a Chef at Le Meridien Hotel, Dubai Marina.

A closer look on his creations -- Dubai's famous icons.

After the thirty-minute tour inside the miniature home, we were given Nestle goodie bags :)

Hi Kero, thanks for sharing these photos. I guess this guy is one truly talented. That's a great skill and am proud of him he is doing great in that part of the Kingdom!

I like the centerpiece at the entrance and the chocolate towers.

Thank you for joining us this week!
