North American Ambassadors Convene in NYC


For the first time since 2019, Chocolate Ambassadors from the US and Canada convened to share, learn, and collaborate. The newest Chocolate Academy™ Center in New York City was the epicenter of the Ambassadors Camp, with events occurring at and around the Academy.

The three-day event included several training sessions, workshops, and presentations, but the week’s organizers planned some professional fun for the chefs as well. Tastings, a pastry tour, and group dinners gave chefs time to network, plan future collaborations and get inspired by the work of their New York peers. In total, 14 Ambassadors and 7 Chocolate Academy™ Chefs were present for the event, with a keynote presentation from Chef Ramon Morato on the last day.
