“Inspiration from nature”,a theme in which artisans will sublimate the best part of Nature.

“Inspiration from Nature” is the new theme for both national selections and international final,that is set to inspire the participants. Nature proofs to be a strong source of sensorial inspiration. Whether it is the colour of flavours, 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. For us, food is more than just food.

For the 6th edition of the World Chocolate Masters, Pâtissiers, Chocolatiers and Chefs will have to play with colours, shapes, scents, textures…to tickle Jury’s senses. We like to invite chocolate creators around the world to explain us how natural products are shaped and transformed into a delightful story with cacao and chocolate at the heart.
