World Chocolate Masters 2018: the future of chocolate enjoyment
In the year 2025, one-half of the world’s population will live in megacities with 10 million inhabitants or more. In these cities, gastronomy will meet art and design, and sustainability will be a key issue. How will these places influence the taste experiences of the future? What will the next generation of chocolate and pastry creations look like? These questions were the focus of the World Chocolate Masters 2018, which was held from 31 October to 2 November 2018 at the Salon du Chocolat Paris. A total of 20 master chocolatiers from around the world presented their answers to these questions in six product categories, and reproduced their creations live in front of the jury and audience. Elias Läderach, who represented Switzerland at the competition, impressed with his innovative recipes, the extraordinary aesthetics of his work and his artisanal perfection.
