Best chocolatiers of the world

World’s master chocolatiers

National Geographic revealed its picks for chocolate in the “The 10 Best Chocolatiers in the World” list. Five of the premier chocolate-makers come from US, while Teuscher from Zurich, Switzerland is the winner of the first place. The NG’s list did not include such famous names as Neuhaus from Belgium, Pierre Marcolini from Brussels, Parisian chocolate maker Michel Cluizel, or Italian chocolate maker Amedei.

Teuscher won its title of “the world’s master chocolatier for its 70 years tradition and finest and most expensive natural ingredients, the ban of chemicals, additives, and preservatives.

“Each chocolatier on our list produces signature melt-in-your-mouth chocolates, be it a single-source dark chocolate bar, a cream- or liqueur-filled bonbon, a praline, fruit dipped in chocolate, a truffle, fudge, or some other sinfully delicious treat,” says National Geographic. You will never regret indulging yourself with the confections produced by these premier chocolate-makers.
