Callebaut Chocolate Festival and Competition 2013
July 16, 2013 § 2 Comments
We’re excited to announce that the Chez Dré pâtisserie team recently competed in the 2013 Callebaut Chocolate Entremet Competition!
The annual festival saw chocolatiers, pastry chefs and aficionados from across Australia gather in the Hunter Valley to compete in the Callebaut Chocolate Show Piece and Entremets Competition.
The criteria in the entremets category was to create a chocolate and fruit entremet with a chocolate garnish. A distinctive chocolate and fruit flavour was required, and the entrants were judged on originality, harmonised chocolate and fruit flavours as well as balanced colour and presentation.
Three girls from the Chez Dré pâtisserie team each came up with an entremet to enter into the competition. Entremets are French gâteaux. They typically include layers of mousse, cream, sponge and a little crunch, and are as beautiful to look at as they are delicious!
Chez Dré blitzed the Entremets category at the competition! Our pastry apprentice Lihn Dang won Best Apprentice, and Christean Ng was awarded second place in the same category. And pastry chef Krista Corbett was Runner Up overall!
Congratulations girls! We are so proud!
This week we are featuring Lihn’s beautiful milk chocolate mousse, caramel brûlée, banana crème and hazelnut crunch entremet.
Next week, we will have Kirsta’s dark chocolate, blood orange, coffee and cardamom entremet available.
The following week, you can come in and try Christean’s sour cherry, coconut and dark chocolate entremet!
The entremet are $8.50 per slice and are on display in the showcase.
An entremet for 8-10 people is available to order for $65 with 12 hours notice (please call the café to order on 9690 2688).
Make sure you come in and have a taste! Bon appétit!
