Maltese chef raises animal cruelty awareness through stunning elephant chocolate statue
One popular chocolate saying goes: 'A little bit of sweetness can drown out a lot of bitterness', but one local chef has combined the delicious treat with a very pressing subject matter to take a stand against animal cruelty.
Isaac Borg, the chef behind this marvellous creation, was inspired by the deadly effects of the ivory trade business on elephants: “The inspiration behind this centerpiece was to raise awareness on the cruelty and sufferance elephants endure due to man’s greed for ivory,” read his employer’s Facebook post.
Isaac’s creation forms part of Kulinarja 2020, Malta’s biggest cooking competition held between Monday and today. The competition is a main feature of The Malta Catering Expo 2020, where over 200 chefs have or are competing in time and pressure tests to win local prestigious culinary awards.
Well done Isaac!
