How will the World Chocolate Masters jury determine a winner?
Each of the 18 champions must complete 7 tasks that test their technical skills and their creativity. Each task takes a different approach to #TMRW - what will it taste like, look like, feel like? Contestants will be given a numerical score for each assignment, and the chef with the highest total score will be named World Chocolate Master.
The competition starts off with 2 assignments on the first day. For the #SHARE assignment, competitors must create a chocolate gift for 6 people or more.
The second assignment, #WOW, asks the chefs to use their design skills to rethink the window display and create something that grabs attention instantly and clearly tells a story.
Day 2 of the World Chocolate Masters Final
Day 2 of the final brings three more assignments:
#TASTE requires contestants to create a fresh pastry from scratch using the Cacao Barry® couverture of their choice and a locally sourced ingredient.
For the #BONBON assignments, chefs will make a bonbon that must be fresh, contain at least two different textures, and should have a shelf life of two weeks.
Day 2's last challenge is #YOU, where each competitor will have one minute to tell their personal story. What inspires them? And what do they believe #TMRW tastes, looks, and feels like?
At the end of Day 2, 8 chefs will be eliminated, with just ten going on to Day 3 and two final assignments. #TRANSFORM and #DESIGN will require the chefs to use every skill in the repertoire.
