Where would we be without chocolate?

The Cake Bake & Sweets Show is proud to team up with Le Cordon Bleu, the world’s most famous cooking school, and Callebaut, the chocolate pioneers bringing us the fantastic ruby chocolate, to bring to you the Chocolate Masterclass feature. With live demonstrations from talented Le Cordon Bleu chefs and the highest quality Belgian chocolate on show, the Chocolate Masterclass will be bringing our dessert dreams to creamy cocoa reality.   Callebaut has long since been a leader in confectionery around the globe, and their recent cultivation and production of ruby chocolate has really set tongues wagging!   Le Cordon Bleu is world-renowned for their exceptional education in the culinary arts. From hospitality management to providing the foundations for aspiring chefs to become leaders in their field, Le Cordon Bleu truly educates the industry.   Together, these two respected brands will bring to you the Chocolate Masterclass.
