He explains how Callebaut aims to bring good chocolate closer to customer and to encourage a culture of great chocolate with gourmet chefs and Chocolate artisans alike. Callebaut's ambassadors like Chef Manikandan and Chef Tibballs have shown what wonderful creations can be crafted from Callbaut's couverture chocolate. In fact, we were given a sweet demonstration by Chef Manikandan at this very event.
