Alistair Birt announced as Cacao Barry ambassador

Head pastry chef at Harrods in London, Alistair Birt has been announced as the latest chocolate expert to join Cacao Barry as a UK Ambassador.

The Chocolate Ambassador Club under the umbrella of Cacao Barry gathers almost 200 pastry chefs and chocolatiers from all around the world with a passion for chocolate and talent as their common denominators.

The 2013 Acorn Award winner and UK Chocolate Master for 2016 said: “I’m very excited to become a Cacao Barry Ambassador and look forward to all the projects we will work on together. Cacao Barry has played a large role in my career and development, from learning how to temper at University to using our own range of Or noir blends here at Harrods plus a World Chocolate Masters in-between.”

Chocolate Ambassadors also develop exclusive recipes for the brand they represent and make recommendations regarding product use and applications.
