Cacao Art’s fine chocolates, confectioned in Miami by Venezuelan sisters and chocolatiers Susana and Isabel García, were awarded three medals at the 9th Annual Academy of Chocolate Awards in London, England.
Cacao Art’s handmade luxury chocolates have already garnered national and international praise. The prestigious Academy of Chocolate is the latest to award them medals for three of their original confections.
Tulasi, a mixed chocolate ganache infused with holy basil, won a silver medal; Café de Hacienda, a dark chocolate ganache with Colombian coffee and raw cane sugar, won bronze; and Amazonas, a ganache made with chocolate from beans of the Amazon region of Venezuela, won bronze too.
The Academy of Chocolate was founded in 2005 with the aim of promoting fine quality chocolate around the world. This year, they had a record-breaking 290 entries in the filled bonbons category from over 35 countries that were judged by 100 experts.
All three of Cacao Art’s winning chocolates were made using ingredients from South Florida producers: Colombian coffee roasted locally by Per’la Specialty Roasters, organic tulasi from Sons and Daughters Farm in Lake Worth and chocolate made by Castronovo Chocolate in Stuart.
As a Venezuelan-American I’m hurting because of the horror of what is happening in my home country. Learning that these two girls are conquering the chocolate world with their craftsmanship and love to details, brought joy to my soul and made me so happy that I decided to share the good news with you.
So cheers to Cacao Art, Susana and Isabel and the García Nevett family!
