The Smooth Festival of Chocolate is returning to The Rocks for two days in August.

Smooth has teamed up with more than 100 exhibitors, including Lindt, Callebaut, Baci Perugina, Gelato Messina, Black Star Pastry and Piazza D’Oro for the event.

Chocolate master Dean Gibson will showcase a 180-kilogram moving chocolate “Bone Shaker”; Sydney Props Specialists is creating an ode to chocolate history; and Jodie Van Der Velden (Josophan’s Fine Chocolate) is building a jungle of chocolate.

Sip on “Espresso Jar-tinis” topped with Nutella doughnuts (Mr Black Espresso), or a boozy chocolate ale (Endeavour Beer). You can even buy Domuts for your dog.

Some names to watch out for: Australian master chocolatier Thomas Schnetzler; Australia’s queen of chocolate Kirsten Tibballs; Jean Michel Raynaud (La Renaissance Patisserie); and Daria Nechiporenko (Australian representative for the World Chocolate Masters 2018).

From 10am to 6pm.
