Erik Van der Veken

Cacao Barry brand ambassador

„If you believe you can do it, you are right! If you believe you can't do it, you are also right!“

About me

I fell in love with chocolate and it's endless possibilities when I was going through Culinary school in Belgium and decided back then I wanted to dedicate my life to it.

With experience as chocolatier in Luxury hotels and restaurants in London and having started a Chocolate-Patisserie concept from scratch in the Mid East while leading a team of 10 I believe I'm now well placed to guide companies developing chocolate and pastry products incorporating new techniques, trends while keeping them applicable in real world operations.

My specialisation

Fusion chocolates, use of modern ingredients in patisserie.
