Having lived in Rome for several years, we were so lucky to be able to hop on random trains and go to these local festivals. Almost every town or region in central Italy is known for producing some staple food or drink. It could be strawberries, artichokes, wine, or a specific type of chocolate. My first visit to Perugia happened to be during Italy’s Eurochocolate Festival, a celebration of everything cocoa-related, and it is as AMAZING as it sounds. I couldn’t wait to try all the delicious treats, especially Nutella.
Unraveling the Eurochocolate Festival in Perugia
Perugia’s Piazza IV November became a vibrant chocolate wonderland during the Eurochocolate Festival. Artisan chocolatiers showcased their craftsmanship, displaying a mesmerizing array of chocolate sculptures and delectable treats.
Nutella Magic: A Beloved Treat
At the heart of the Eurochocolate Festival, Nutella took center stage, delighting chocolate enthusiasts of all ages. I indulge in Nutella everything. Crepes, gelato, Nutella-covered strawberries, each Nutella-infused creation was a testament to the love affair between chocolate and hazelnut spread.
Beyond Expectations: Exploring Unique Chocolatey Creations
While Nutella was undeniably a star attraction, the Eurochocolate Festival had much more to offer. We discovered a world of innovative chocolate concoctions, including dark chocolate (with balsamic vinegar) and savory dishes infused with cocoa. It’s a big sugar rush – but it was so worth it.
