I was so pleased to hear the news that Chika Wantanabe, who is hosting our two day time pop ups in April and May took 5 awards home from the academy chocolate awards 2015!
"Newcomer to the Awards, Chika Watanabe received a Gold award for her Tajine Apricot in the Best Filled Chocolate – Spices and Herbs category."
A bronze in best caramel filled chocolate category for her 'Yuzu Mint Caramel'!
In Best Filled Chocolate- Alcohol, she won Silver (alongside Selfridges).
A real accomplishment for such an artisan! I can't wait to see her in action when she creates the chcoclates here!
