Paul Joachim is “The Chocolate Genius“; a chocolate sculpting master, Paul made the transition to this decadent, edible media seven years ago. A Food Network challenge winner and a television veteran, Paul has made many televised appearances throughout his career; showcasing his amazing skill in chocolate sculpting and his unique skill set as both an artist and dessert creator. In fact, it was his win on Food Network Challenge five years ago that provided his “Aha” moment. “That was the moment I knew I wanted to do this for a living,” he says. “Getting myself through that show gave me such incredible confidence to go out and pursue my dream.” In recent years Paul has made a long-awaited career transition into teaching, a role he loves. His position as an industry leader and teacher has taken him all over the world. This year Paul will be travelling to Australia to demonstrate his incredible skills at the Australian Cake, Bake and Sweets show, where his eager fans can’t wait to see him in action.
