We won! A silver and a bronze medal for Emma’s delicious creations at the British International Chocolate Awards.
The Silver medal was in the category of Ganaches or truffles using mixed dark/milk/white for coating and fillings where Emma created an exceptional cashew and sesame praline.
Cashew and Sesame Praline
The Bronze medal was in the category Dark Chocolate Enrobed Fondants. Here we entered our Mojito Cream which, even if we say so ourselves is sublime.
The International Chocolate Awards is an independent competition recognising excellence in fine chocolate making and in the products made with fine chocolate – a perfect showcase for the talents of Baravelli’s.
The judging panel included regular UK judges, along with pastry chefs, restaurateurs, journalists and other specialists from the York area and members of our international Grand Jury panel. The entry categories included flavoured chocolate bars, filled chocolates and spreads and are based on yearly feedback from our entrants and in consultation with the fine chocolate industry. All judging is anonymous, including at the Grand Jury final session, where Golds, Silver and Bronze prizes are awarded by private voting according to the Grand Jury rules.
It’s always an honour to receive recognition for our craft, particularly from those at the top of our industry. Thank you to everyone who voted for us!
