Vanparys has been awarded the 2014 “iTQi Superior Taste Award”, the only stamp of quality in taste granted by food and drink opinion leaders who are Michelin starred Chefs and Sommeliers.
Similarly to the famous Michelin guide of gastronomy, iTQi awards products not on competition but on their own merits. Only products having received a mark superior to 70% are granted a “Superior Taste Award” of one, two or three golden stars. For Vanparys, its Almond Dragees, Viennoises and Almond Chocolate Truffe have been honoured this year with two stars and its Swiss Fruits, 1.
The iTQi jury comprises 15 different nationalities and is composed of members of the most prestigious culinary institutions of Europe such as, the Maîtres Cuisiniers of France, the Académie Culinaire de France, the Academy of Culinary Arts, Euro-Toques, the Federazione Italiana Cuochi, the Jeunes Restaurateurs d’Europe, the Associaciones des Cocineros de España, the World Master Chefs Society, the Verband der Köche Deutschlands as well as the Association de la Sommellerie Internationale (ASI) for drinks.
