Four days of tastings, culture and entertainment with well-known guests from the national and international scene, but the real protagonist will be him: the Modica IGP chocolate, the first chocolate to bear this important recognition in Europe. A very old recipe that makes it unique in every bite, capable of evoking in many pleasant memories related to their childhood and winning over those who are about to taste it for the first time. An event that is renewed this year from December 7 to 10 in the historic city center, which can be reached by shuttle bus(map and info) or even by train if departing from Syracuse or Caltanissetta.
Among the initiatives will be a Chocolate Factory that will take gluttons and the curious into the magnificent world of processing the famous bar, starting with the cocoa bean, curated by Fausto Ercolani. A pastry workshop led by pastry chef Concetto Cicero will also be held throughout.
