Due to the great challenges that chefs will have to face as a consequence of the impact of COVID-19 globally, the eighth edition of the World Chocolate Masters, initially scheduled for 2021, will be postponed for a year in order to give applicants the opportunity to fully focus on recovering their business and find time to prepare for this great competition. According to Ramon Morató, member of the organizing committee and creative director of Cacao Barry, this decision was made because “the epitome of the celebration of chocolate cannot take place when chefs around the world need all their energy to keep their establishments going. We have launched activities to help and reinforce their businesses again, and we will launch new ones in the coming months. ”
The new calendar states that national teams in 21 countries will take place between March 2021 and February 2022. In March 2022 all finalists will gather at the WCM Bootcamp at the Chocolate Academy in Montreal (Canada) to receive inspiring sessions and start planning their participation in the world final that will take place in October 2022 in Paris. In the coming days, the organization will contact all who are pre-registered to talk about the new operation after the postponement.
The competition, which proposes #TMRW_TASTES_LOOKS_FEELS_LIKE_, is open to new applicants. Those interested can visit to download and fill out the registration form. A committee of chefs will review all nominations and will directly contact local teams and applicants to continue the registration process.
