At the Salon du Chocolat the names of the Awards du Chocolat 2015 winners were unveiled, a competition where the search for creativity, excellence, flavor, or a master chocolatiers’ know-how are awarded.
A great six-meter tall chocolate bear, created by the Le Pré Catelan team, caused a sensation among the attendees of the 21st edition of the fair.
In October this Salon, a unique opportunity to discover and taste one-of-a-kind chocolates from different countries, returns.
More than the prize money of 2,500 euros for first place, this trophy is a wonderful tribute to the career of this pastry chef from Kobe.
To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Salon du Chocolat, chocolatier Jean-Paul Hevin created a stunning chocolate version of King Kong with the help of the artist Richard Orlinski.
The Salon du Chocolat reaches its 20th birthday and makes two almost simultaneous announcements. On the one hand there will be the classic celebration in Paris, from the 29th October to the 2nd November. And on the other hand, there will be a London event, between the 17th and 19th October at Olympia, which will be included in the programme of activities for Chocolate Week.
Paris, Tokyo, New York, London, Shanghai…and now Brussels, too, has had the honor of hosting the famous “Salon du Chocolat”, that great festival in which chocolate takes center stage in all manner of imaginable ways. On this occasion and given that it was in Belgium, the great chocolatiers of the country took it upon themselves to elevate the event to levels of elegance that will be hard to beat.
They are from a total of five African, three Asian, four Central American and three South American countries. They are the 15 “Cocoa of Excellence” award winners from this year’s Salon du Chocolat in Paris.
