U.S. National Chocolate Master

29.09.10

Chef Sylvain Bortolini created winning towering chocolate sculpture during intense two-day competition at the International Baking Industry Exposition in Las Vegas.


Runners-up included:
• 2nd Place – Frederic Loraschi, chocolatier and owner of Chocolat Frederic Loraschi LLC in Hummelstown, Pa.
• 3rd Place – Stephen Durfee, pastry chef instructor at the Culinary Institute of America at Greystone in St. Helena, Calif.

Bortolini and Loraschi were also recognized with special awards for “Best Chocolate Showpiece” and “Best Tasting,” respectively.

As part of the competition, each participant created a large chocolate sculpture that conveyed the theme of this year’s competition – “Cocoa, Quetzalcoatl’s Gift” – using professional gourmet chocolate brands Callebaut, Cacao Barry, and Carma, as well as some inspiration from the ancient Aztec legend surrounding the origins of cocoa in South America. They also showcased their skills by creating a chocolate entremet, two types of pralines, and a plated dessert.
