The appointments with the events dedicated to the world of chocolate are a must to see at the 38th edition of SIGEP (Fiera di Rimini, 21-25 January 2017).
SIGEP will host the second edition of The Ultimate Chococake Award, addressing professional pastry chefs and chocolatiers aged between 18 and 35. This is the chocolate cake contest organized by Puratos Italia, officially sponsored by SIGEP and entirely dedicated to Belcolade chocolate. At the previous edition, the competition’s winner, Rocco Tribuzio, accompanied by the Master Pastry Chefs in the panel of technical judges, had the opportunity of taking part in the Vietman Cocoa Tour, an exceptional journey in the Vietnam cocoa plantations where Vietnam 73 single-origin dark beans, the stars of the contest, are grown.
Plus, the Chocolate Academy by Barry Callebaut: in the demo area, set up for educational purposes, it will be possible to personally see all the various stages of chocolate making. Visitors will thus be able to see the various steps, going from cacao beans to the end product, whether it’s a bar of chocolate, chocolate put to various uses in pastry making, or even a chocolate-flavoured gelato cone.
