Callebaut®, Cacao Barry® and Carma® have the pleasure to announce “The Architecture of Taste”: theme of 5th World Chocolate Masters
Meulan/France, the 3rd of January 2012 – While Dutchman Frank Haasnoot is still celebrating his recent victory at the World Chocolate Masters 2011, the organising chocolate brands Callebaut®, Cacao Barry® and Carma® are already preparing full force for the next edition. ‘The Architecture of Taste’ is the new theme that will inspire the contestants to push the boundaries of chocolate even further.
The World Chocolate Masters is the only competition in the world solely dedicated to the creative use of chocolate. During the last edition, held in October 2011, Frank Haasnoot amazed the world with mysterious chocolate sculptures and stunning flavours. After 3 days of intense competition at the highest level, he impressed the jury most and led the Netherlands to victory.
Always on the lookout for the world’s most promising chocolate talent, the 3 organising chocolate brands Callebaut®, Cacao Barry® and Carma® have already begun preparing for the 5th edition of this widely acclaimed competition. The search for the world’s greatest exponent of chocolate work will start again soon with a series of National Selections to be held throughout all corners of the world and ending with a World Final in late 2013.
‘The Architecture of Taste’ is the new theme that is set to inspire the participants of the next edition. Inspiration, creativity, design and innovation are all words that spring to mind when you think of architecture. From the Guggenheim in Bilbao over the National Stadium in Beijing to the New Museum of Contemporary Art in New York, a wide variety of awe-inspiring buildings reminds us of the seemingly limitless possibilities of architectural craftsmanship. And they all have something in common. Each of these marvellous constructions is a great expression of the brilliance of the human mind.
For the 5th edition of the World Chocolate Masters, we will challenge the contestants to apply some of that architectural brilliance to the world of taste. Creating a chocolate cake, dessert and praline must be approached in the same way as creating a whole building. Patissiers, Chocolatiers and Chefs will have to express their architectural skills through taste. They will need to analyse and compose with flavours. They will need to study and design new shapes and textures. And most importantly, they will need to innovate and thrill.
To successfully complete this new challenge, the contestants will have to demonstrate their talent and creativity, and give a whole new dimension to the world of chocolate gastronomy. In short, the contestants will need to create a brand new architecture of taste, texture and experience, in which chocolate plays a fundamental role.
