Student chocolatier competition gets under way

Sheffield-based chocolate supplier Keylink will hold its Student Chocolatier of the Year competition for the fourth year running in June.

The competition, at Sheffield City College on 2 June, will see full-time students in the third year of an NVQ Level 3 or equivalent course complete a total of four tasks in five hours. These include making 12 handmade truffles, 20 moulded pralines, a two-portion chocolate plated dessert and a chocolate centrepiece.

Each student will be put forward by their college tutor who will be responsible for mentoring them throughout the build-up to the competition. Lauren Roberts from University of West London won last year’s contest.

Judges include: Ruth Hinks, the UK’s World Chocolate Master for 2012 and owner of Cocoa Black Chocolate & Pastry School in Peebles; Julie Sharp, technical advisor for Barry Callebaut Chocolate Academy in Banbury; and Thierry Dumouchel, owner of Garforth Bakery in Leeds.

Colleges interested in taking part, should contact Lynne Eaton on 0114 245 5400.
