Urban Super hero

Everybody likes chocolate and nearly everyone likes fashion. There is a way to combine these two favourites – a Chocolate Fashion Show! Last week chocolate fashion shows were held in New York and Toronto.

Once a year we have an opportunity to tell you about the New York Chocolate Show. It is a three-day event held in Manhattan. It is usually opened with its annual “Chocolate Fashion Show,” where designers and pastry chefs join forces to create a “chocolate collection.”

The 11th annual New York Chocolate Show is taking over the huge Pier 94 space at West 55th Street this weekend.

This year a colorful “Super-Hero” chocolate fashion show impressed everyone who saw it. Almost everything the models were wearing was edible.

More than 60 top chocolatiers and pastry chefs including Jacque Torres, Francois Payard, and Fairytale Brownies presented their sweet collections and culinary extravagance.

The chocolate superheroes you could see at the catwalk were Batgirl, Barbarella, Ironman, Lara Croft and others.

Dina Sadik, a chocolatier, said,

“Chocolate is a merciless element. It shows no mercy, it has no mercy. You have to have your timing, you have to have the temperature, you have to have the humidity right. Everything has to be right. You have one shot at it, one shot.”

The fun and complicatedness of combining chocolate with superhero costumes led designer and chocolatier Joelle Mahoney to work with “chocolate leather” to create a “Xena Warrior Princess” costume for her model.
Joelle Mahoney said,

“Chocolate leather is a combination of chocolate and corn syrup, and then when we finished making it, we then cut it out just like a dress because its like leather. You can touch it, feel it, it is all like leather and it tastes like tootsie roll if you were to eat it.”
