Things To Do

Fairchild's International Chocolate Festival returns

Indulge in chocolate delicacies during the season’s most delicious event with fine chocolate samples from artisan chocolatiers, lectures on chocolate making and demonstrations from Miami’s master chefs and chocolatiers.

Take the Chocowalk to learn about the life cycle of a cacao plant. Chefs Allen Susser and Darren Laszlo and others will teach some of their favorite recipes starring the sweet treat. New this year is The Living History of Cacao and Chocolate, an experience that shows the evolution of chocolate from seed to chocolate bar with input from scientists, horticulturalists and chocolatiers.

Families can also take part in the Rina Yoga class on the Bailey Palm Glade at 11 a.m. Sunday and the grown ups can indulge in the Beer Garden with samples from the Biscayne Bay Brewing Company and beer and chocolate pairings.

International Chocolate Festival, 9:30 p.m.-4:30 p.m. Jan. 23-25 at Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden, 10901 Old Cutler Rd., Coral Gables;
