Lionel Clement Wins 2008 United States Masters of Chocolate

Today, as a part of the culmination of the New York Chocolate Show, Wynn Hotel Chocolatier Lionel Clement won the 2008 Masters of Chocolate competition. Aside from winning the title of U.S. Chocolate Master, Chef Clement has earned the right to represent the United States in Finals of the World Masters of Chocolate competition to be held at the Salon du Chocolat Professionnel from 14th-16th October 2009 at the Paris Expo. There, Chef Clement will be matched up against fellow Chocolate Masters; Romain Leeman of Canada, Sébastien Trudelle of France, Michaela Karg of Germany, Oscar Ortega of Mexico, and Mark Tilling of the United Kingdom as well as other top competitors yet to be determined. (I will post updates as they become available.)

You can view pictures of Chef Lionel Clement’s winning work along with those of the other compeditors at the World Chocolate Masters official site. Congratulations to Chef Lionel Clement, and good luck at the Salon du Chocolat in October.
