The CBA Cork Business Awards, honors businesses in Cork city and county for the brilliant work that they do for the area. Alpes d’Or was delighted to be the chocolate sponsor to this event and to provide all guests and members of the Cork Business Association with our luxury Swiss chocolate.
The theme for this year’s Business Awards was based around Chefs of Cork. Some of Cork and indeed Ireland’s best Chefs, were brought together to create a culinary banquet fit for the most distinguished of guests. The dishes were created by Chefs from a number of top hotels in Cork including The Cork International Hotel, The Maldron Hotel South Mall, The Carrigaline Court and Ballymaloe House.
This was a unique experience where the Chefs explained to the guests where the inspiration for the dishes had come from and how the dishes were prepared. Alpes d’Or chocolates were included in this menu and all guests got to experience the luxury of our indulgent Swiss chocolate.
