Foodie Events in Geneva: March-April 2012

You don’t need a weathergirl to tell you what the weather is like out there- Spring fever is on and in full swing! And naturally it comes accompanied by a host of food oriented activities and excursions. This is by no means an exhaustive list, so  come back from time to time for updates!

Bon App’!

March 24-25, 9h-18h both days

Versoix Choc, the chocolate festival down the road, is happening this very weekend! All the Chocolate greats will be there, from the traditional (Stettler, Rohr, Favarger, Rapp) to the small mom and pop operation (particularly the Hochstrasser fam who will be selling my ever-so-favorite pavés glacés Genevois!), to the delectably trendy Pascal Pascoet chocolates of Carouge.  Folks, this one is a no brainer.
