Bonjour!

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!
