Academy of Chocolate Award Evening 2018

A big thank you to the Academy of Chocolate for hosting another spectacular evening to celebrate the 2018 awards.

The party was held at Claridges Hotel in London, and with the awards now attracting entries from all over the world, it was an opportunity to catch up with chocolatiers from the UK and abroad. It’s also a great chance to try some of the newly awarded chocolates. Unfortunately, the awards fell on the UK’s hottest couple of days in the past 40 years, so chocolate supplies were slightly limited as most people (including us) didn’t want to risk presenting chocolate puddles.
