abril 11, 2019 3:51 pm by International Chocolate Awards in Finalists

The International Chocolate Awards is pleased to announce the Grand Jury Finalists of the third French Chocolatier Competition and the second Benelux competition which were judged from 5-8 April, 2019 in Paris.

The judging panel was made up of pastry chefs, journalists, restaurant reviewers, bloggers, culinary educators and chefs, as well as members of our Grand Jury.

The Grand Jury Finalists are the entries that made it through to the final Grand Jury round, following an initial technical Selection round and four days of Main round judging. The Finalists are the nominations from which the Grand Jury select the prize winners, through private voting. The Grand Jury follow strict rules, which you can read here (PDF).

While listing as a Grand Jury Finalist is an achievement in itself, it does not necessarily indicate that the entry will receive a prize.

The 2019 French Finalists are:
