Callebaut Launches Chocolatier’s Kitchen Podcast

One of the top concerns for chocolatiers and, indeed, any professional or artisan who works with chocolate is shelf life. Finding ways to streamline production, save on labor costs, and avoid food waste while offering the freshest, highest quality desserts and confections possible is top of mind for any chef.

Callebaut® assembled top-tier chefs from around the world and brought them together to discuss every aspect of the shelf life question: Why is shelf life important? How can we measure it? What ingredients and practices can extend shelf life?

Chefs Ryan Stevenson and Kirsten Tibballs

Hosted by Callebaut® Lead Creative Chef Minette Smith, the episodes are long enough to cover all the relevant points but short enough to enjoy over a cup of coffee. The first episode features Chefs Kirsten Tibballs and Ryan Stevenson and is packed with practical information for confectioners and pastry chefs. In all, there will be 4 episodes, each featuring different expert chefs.
