Callebaut Patissier, Celebrating the Indian Heritage of Great Taste
Callebaut practiced brewing for years before Octaaf Callebaut, started experimenting his first chocolate product in a small village of Wieze, Belgium, in 1911. This delightful chocolate was first time introduced to rest of the world in 1960’s. Throughout its century old presence in the chocolate industry, Callebaut has been a desirable companion to work with for every chef and home makers.
Callebaut successfully runs an academy which guides inspiring chocolatiers across the world click here to know more about the courses. It also supports Cocoa Farmers for the brighter prospects of these farmers.
As an initiative to experience the finest Belgian chocolate experience in India, Callebaut launched its first edition of “Callebaut Patissier of the Year 2017” in Mumbai last month. The competition was held in two phases.
In the first phase, chefs from across the country had participated and prepared a Moulded Praline & Cake of the day. Eight top performers were then moved to the next phase where each one of them created a Chocolate Showpiece & Chocolate to go, portraying ‘The Heritage of Great Taste’. The idea behind the competition is to celebrate the fusion of tastes, textures, culture, ethnicity, diversity and rich history of India.
The chefs created wonderful master pieces which left everyone in awe.
The Barry Callebaut group announced Chef Alisha Faleiro as the winner of Callebaut Patissier of the Year 2017.
The entire event was an ecstatic experience where beautifully sculptured chocolate pieces were showcased. Along, with chocolate creativity the event served delicious spread of desserts which we gorged on once the contest was over.
Thank you team for sharing the delicious artisanal chocolates!
