Media Release: World-class chocolatier to visit Aberdeen

NORTH-east chefs and culinary students at Aberdeen College get the chance to share the kitchen with a world-class chocolatier and patissier tomorrow as part of the roadshow demonstrations organised by UK award winning food suppliers, Braehead Foods.

Barry Callebaut will be running the chocolate workshops in association with Braehead foods and is open to all levels of chefs hoping to improve their product knowledge and skills.

Leading the demonstration is Will Torrent, the award-winning Master Chocolatier and consultant chef for Waitrose supermarket group.

Will’s first foray into the world of high-class cuisine came at Heston Blumenthal’s world-renowned Fat Duck at the tender age of 16.

In just a few short years, the talented pastry chef has picked up an array of awards, including Craft Guild of Chefs Young Chef of the Year 2009, the 2010 Acorn Scholar and the first Medallion of Excellence when he represented the UK at Worldskills Japan 2007.

Braehead Foods North sales manager, Kevin Shand, said: “The roadshow demo days are proving to be extremely popular among North-east chefs and seem to be creating a lot of noise.

“We are delighted to be working with Barry Callebaut on such an exciting event.

“Our customers and students of Aberdeen College are extremely lucky to be given the chance to learn from someone like Will Torrent.”


Invite: Media journalists and photographers are invited to Aberdeen College, in the ground floor training restaurant, from 2.30-4.30pm on Tuesday, September 11.
