By 2025, half the world’s population will live in megacities with 10 million inhabitants and over. How will these cities change the way we source, create and enjoy #chocolate? This is this year's theme of the 7th edition of the World Chocolate Masters, in short: #Futropolis!
As of today, the world's 20 upcoming top pastry chefs, representing as many nations, will go head to head in a 3-day battle. Only one will win the title of 'World Chocolate Master' coming Friday.
So do not miss the delicious stories, details and flavors of the World Chocolate Masters 2018, a proud initiative by our French Gourmet chocolate brand, Cacao Barry. Check out the World Chocolate Masters website and join the event via live stream: https://lnkd.in/dwdwx9i #wcmfutropolis
