Dark chocolate is the key to looking younger with its anti-ageing properties according to Australian Callebaut Ambassador and world-renowned chocolatier Kirsten Tibballs.

Kirsten Tibballs is one of Australia's most celebrated and internationally respected pastry chefs and chocolatiers, with Masterchef Australia proclaiming her 'the queen of chocolate'. Kirsten has represented Australia at the World Pastry Championships in Las Vegas, won gold in the Pastry Olympics in Germany and is the director of Savour Chocolate & Patisserie School. Kirsten's skills and knowledge are in high demand not only in Australia but around the word; this year sees her teaching at the Callebaut academies in Belgium and the USA as well as releasing her second book, 'Chocolate'.

F. Mayer Imports and Canberra Institute of Technology (CIT) had the pleasure of hosting the Australian Callebaut Ambassador this week for a cooking demonstration showcasing her amazing chocolatier skills.

This event was open to industry and staff to bring expert skills into the Canberra region and into local businesses. Local Canberra businesses such as The Hyatt Hotel, Flute Bakery, Dobinson's, National Press Club, La Sable, Yarralumla Bakery and Sage restaurant attended the demonstration to see the well-renowned chef in action and learn from one of the best in the industry.

After impressing the industry audience at CIT, this in-demand culinary master had a plane to catch to continue to share the good news of chocolate in Las Vegas.
