World’s Best Pastry Chef – level 2

03-11-2020 07:00

Pierre Marcolini is a Belgian chocalatier who was born in 1964. He worked for famous companies in Belgium and France before he opened his own first shop in 1995. His dream was to change the world of chocolate and to make it more modern.

In his life, Marcolini received several prizes, and recently, World Pastry Stars organized a competition to win the title of the world’s best pastry chef. Marcolini won the title and he proved that Belgium makes the best chocolate.

Marcolini travels the world to find the finest cocoa beans. He speaks to growers and he controls all the steps of making his chocolate. He is one of the few chocolatiers who roast cocoa beans himself. He sells special chocolate gift boxes that cost more than €100 or more than $129.

Difficult words: chocalatier (a person or company that makes and sells chocolate candy), prove (to confirm), fine (of very high quality, making (the steps to make something)).
