Staying in Romania this weekend on Valentine’s Day? We suggest you several events to attend on this special day in the Capital, but not only…
“Valentine’s Day Fair” is rejoining over 50 exhibitors across the country at Sala Dalles in Bucharest until February 14, during 10:00-20:00. They meet lovers halfway with fine gifts such as hand made painted porcelain jewelry, wooden decorations, silver and semiprecious stones jewelry, glass-beads jewelry, cosmetics, natural care products, retro flower arrangements, balloons, Feng Shui decorations, Swarovski crystals, clothes and accessories, metal and glass engraving, handicrafts, coffee and teas.
Excelsior Galleries are coming with a different approach, proposing „The Most Sexi Fair In Town: Waiting For Valentine’s”, a fair where ladies can purchase dresses, socks, underthings, furriery and cosmetics. The fair is opened between 12:00-24:00 and the entrance is free.
Dark chocolate & rum or chili and chocolate perhaps? Unleash your inner Juliet Binoche and become a chocolatier for a day! Chocolatier Stanimira Georgieva and Chef Rachel Sargent will teach the audience the art of making chocolate and the secrets behind the cooking process.
So, you will taste fine chocolates and master the absolutely key step of “tempering”. Then you will pipe special filigree designs and create your own artisan chocolate bars experimenting with classic and modern flavour combinations with white or black chocolate, milk, nuts or comfit chocolate and the high-end spice chocolate. Callebaut Blegian chocolate is to be used.
