The Great British Chocolate Challenge 2016

Do you fancy yourself as a future chocolatier? Would you like to taste chocolate which has never even been created, let alone tasted before? If so, then this is the challenge for you!willy will 2

The Great British Chocolate Challenge for 2016 is launching – they’re looking for the next, young, Willy Wonka. We’ll be following the journey of the competition from the very start, right through until your creations make it through to production.

The hunt has begun to  find the UK’s most talented youngsters aged between 12 and 18 – essentially, YOU!  The task in hand is to create a savoury chocolate – I do mean savoury, it’s no typo! 🙂 10 competitors will be able to create the chocolate, the final four can then bring their idea to life and actually take it to market!  All of the competitors are guided by top mentors like Will Torrent, an award winning pastry chef who’s worked with chefs like James Martin and Heston Blumenthal. He’s also worked on TV on many programmes such as ‘Sunday Brunch’ and ‘The Apprentice’.
