This post is dedicated to all food art lovers, and more especially to whoever is still not convinced that food can be art, but most importantly to chocolate worshippers.
Let’s make it clear, what’s The World Chocolate Masters ?
Well, it’s a competition, a culinary one, involving lots of chocolate, and a “National Chocolate Master” from many countries, that takes place every two years since its creation in 2005.
This year, the theme imposed is “Cocoa, the gift of Quetzalcoatl”, and the nineteen finalists were asked to elaborate a chocolate cake, two pralines, a dessert and one exceptional artistic creation around this theme…
It is happening these three days (19, 20 and 21) in Paris, where visitors can admire the creations at the ‘’Porte de Versailles’’. And because it’s obviously difficult for most of us to get there in a snap, here are pictures of the finalists’ creations, and know that you can vote for your favorite on their site, which I’ve already done.
Although I’m very proud of the Lebanese artwork, I must say that I admire the Canadian piece, and the Dutch one over all.
But also the savagery of the Mexican one, the details of the dragon in the East European sculpture, the poetry of the Danish one, the symetry on the Russian one, and the sensibility of the Australian work.
I’ve been disappointed by the French creation, the pieces from Taiwan and Japan are too predictable, and it looks like the Swiss is a bit show-off…
At least that’s my opinion. What’s yours ? Which one’s your favorite ? Go vote now, and let me know too !
See ya !
