Recap: Chocolate Tour of 2016

Last Friday night Ryerson University’s student branch of the Canadian Association of Foodservice Professionals (CAFP) hosted a chocolate tour around the city of Toronto. The tour was led by a leader from Tasty Tours Toronto, a company that conducts food tours around the city. The event provided students a chance to learn about where to go for the best chocolate in the Six.
Students had the pleasure of meeting Chef Kaya Ogruce, winner of Chopped Canada in 2016 at one of their many stops. He came to Canada from Turkey to study chemical engineering and now is a successful chef and owner of Death in Venice Gelato Co.
 

Kristie Jang, event photographer and attendee, said “Kaya taught us that if you like something, just go for it. Even if it is not what you went to school for often there are ways to bridge careers. Even he finds ways to use engineering in his current culinary career.” Likewise, Jeroselle Bulanadi, Co-President of CAFP Ryerson and event attendee said: “I didn’t realize how many kinds of chocolate there are. It was interesting to get a chance to try them all and learn how they’re all made.”
A little bit of life advice and a little bit of tasting fun- the tour was a fun-filled afternoon of learning and exploring. Students left with smiles on their faces and bellies full of chocolate! Check out the Youtube video of the event here.
