The Salon du Chocolat brings together over 200 international chefs and pastry chefs to celebrate all things chocolate. "The difficulties we find with a dress made of chocolate are always about contact with the body, which has a temperature of 37 degrees," said French chocolatier Joel Patouillard. "Chocolate melts at 30 degrees, so it is quite simple: chocolate must absolutely not touch the body."
