Belgian Pierre Marcolini named best pastry chef in the world

Chocolatier Pierre Marcolini is named best pastry chef in the world as part of the “World Pastry Stars 2020” event!

Born in Charleroi, Wallonia, in 1964, Marcolini started his first business 25 years ago.

Marcolini, who has 40 shops across Belgium, France, the United Kingdom, Japan and China, was unanimously given the award by a panel of independent journalists.

Marcolini chooses his own cocoa beans to process them into chocolate in his studio and is known as the pioneer of the so-called bean-to-bar sourcing principle.
