After the chocolate-smothered success of last year’s event, luxury Belgian chocolatier Godiva are delighted to announce they will be holding a second UK Chocolate Challenge in October 2015. The competition is poised to be yet another epic sweet-toothed battle, aiming to find the nation’s best recipe for a chocolate dessert.
The timing for this year’s event is perfect, coinciding with the launch of Godiva’s Mousse Meringue collection, where a portion of the sales will be donated to the Breast Cancer Now charity. As such, the entries this year will all have to feature meringue and something pink, alongside the inevitable mounds of chocolate.
A tricky challenge but, with a fantastic prize up for grabs, it's well worth it if you are tempted to take part. The four finalists will be whisked off for a luxury 5* weekend break to Brussels, while the champion will also have the unique opportunity to visit Godiva’s famous Atelier of Chocolate Innovation. What’s more, their recipe will feature on the menu for a week at top chef, and competition judge, Mark Hix’s London restaurant: Hix Soho.
Think you’ve got the winning recipe up your sleeve? Then don’t delay – all entries must be submitted to Godiva via their website by the 30th September, along with a large landscape photo of the finished dish. Don’t forget, it needs to include meringue, a touch of pink, and the recipe should be complete with timings, servings, ingredients and full method steps.
