Bracegirdle’s House of Fine Chocolate is on the hunt for emerging chocolatiers in South Australia.
As part of its sponsorship of Nutella Palooza which takes place on April 20, 2019, Bracegirdle’s is running its first Emerging Chocolatier Competition.
The competition is aimed at three levels:
• Secondary School Students (Year 8 – Year 12)
• TAFE Students
• Non-commercial Chocolate Makers
Owner and self-appointed chief chocolate taster at Bracegirdle’s, Garry Bracegirdle – who himself is a former teacher – is inspired to continue to guide the next generation of chocolatiers in South Australia.
As Australia’s most awarded chocolate company, Bracegirdle’s is keen to nurture and develop upcoming chocolatiers to encourage and ensure chocolate making skills continue to develop in SA.
This is a huge opportunity for South Australians interested in chocolate making, because, as Garry highlighted, “There is no longer a dedicated chocolatier course in SA and indeed, last year the Royal Adelaide show cancelled its chocolate competition, so this is a great new forum for chocolate lovers to showcase their ideas.”
Entrants can enter one of two categories:
1: Moulded Shell – Individual Chocolate
2: Dipped or Enrobed – Individual Chocolate
The competition is proudly supported by F Mayer Imports, which is providing prizes of Callebaut chocolate and accessories, and Savour School, Melbourne, which has donated a $500 voucher towards a chocolate making course. Prizes also include a half-day technical workshop with Bracegirdle’s chocolatiers. Every entrant will receive a 1kg bag of Callebaut chocolate.
Entry forms can be downloaded from the website or picked up from any of Bracegirdle’s five stores located at Blackwood, Cross Road, Glenelg, Marion or McLaren Vale.
