The community
for chocolate inspiration.

For chefs / By chefs.

To know chocolate, explore new creative concepts and truly unlock its full potential, Chefs are eager to collaborate and exchange their expertise and ideas. More than a platform, CacaoCollective is a community.

By harnessing the power of the collective, CacaoCollective aims to elevate the knowledge, creativity, sense of belonging and success of chefs.


Barry Johnson, Chocolate Lecturer at The National Bakery School of London South Bank University, has won the UK & Ireland preselection for WCM. The jury was impressed by his high standards, explosive flavour combinations and well-thought-out designs. The chef’s unflinching attitude completely convinced the jury to send him to the World Chocolate Masters finals in Paris.


In a week, six talented, hard working pastry chefs from the UK and Ireland are going to compete in the national competition for the World Chocolate Masters.


If you enjoy watching the great masters of chocolate shaping their fantastic creations in a competition that includes stunning showpieces, delicious desserts, beautiful bonbons and innovative concepts of food on the go, we have some great news for you!
