Sixth Edition of the Cacao Barry World Chocolate Masters
The USA Chocolate Masters will take place November 6-8, 2014 at the Barry Callebaut Chocolate Academy in Chicago, IL. This competition is open to anyone who is working in the following sectors: pastry-making and confectionery, restaurants and catering, and professional culinary training, with the exception of members of the Barry Callebaut Ambassador Club and Barry Callebaut employees.
Contestants must have been born before 1st January 1993 and have worked / resided in the USA for a minimum of the last 5 years.
A professional jury will judge the creations, taking account of presentation, taste and technical skills.
The theme for both the National Selections and the Final is “Inspiration from Nature”.
Definition of the theme:
Nature proves to be a strong source of sensorial inspiration. Whether it is the colors, the flavors, the sounds of the ocean, the change of seasons, nature is all around us and affecting our moods. At the same time we want more pure, authentic and high quality ingredients. Food is more than just food; it tells a story that more and more people want to be told.
For this edition of the Cacao Barry World Chocolate Masters, Patissiers, Chocolatiers and Chefs will have to play with colors, shapes, scents, textures…to tickle Jury’s senses. We like to invite chocolate creators around the world to explain how they shaped and transformed natural products into a delightful story. We like to invite them to become authors and share their showpieces by putting cacao and chocolate at the heart.
