Luxury Belgian chocolate brand, Godiva, is delighted to announce its first competition in the UK to create the best ever chocolate dessert whose presentation, creativity and texture reflects the craftsmanship and excellence of Godiva. Entrants are invited to apply online by 15th March. From a shortlist of 10, the top four budding chocolate pâtissiers will be invited to come and exhibit their creations at the Finals, held at Godiva kitchens in Central London on Thursday 20th March.
The lucky finalists will cook their desserts before the formidable judging panel of William Sitwell, the MasterChef TV critic, Mark Hix, the leading UK chef, Thierry Muret, Godiva’s head chocolatier and Juliette Nothomb, Belgian chef and author of the latest Godiva recipe book ‘Life’s A Praline’. The winning dessert will be served in one of Hix’s London restaurants. All four finalists will win a 5* weekend to Brussels, with the winner also visiting Godiva’s Atelier of Chocolate Innovation.
Leading members of the UK press will be invited to the Finals event at Godiva’s kitchens in the Boffi Showroom, 254 Brompton Road, London on the evening of Thursday, 20th March to view the winning desserts and to meet the judges and finalists.
