A new baking competition series School of Chocolate dropped on Netflix on 26 November 2021. Eight contestants came forward in competition to win the $100K cash prize; and for the opportunity of learning from the best in the game, chocolatier/pastry genius Amaury Guichon.

Daniel Joseph Corpuz comes to School of Chocolate inspired by his Filipino-American heritage when it comes to making chocolates. And he seemed super excited that now the world will get to see all of that too, through School Of Chocolate.
Still, School Of Chocolate Daniel also admitted that the reality show did not come without any challenges. Of all, Daniel shared, the most challenging part of being on this show was to be able to develop products on the fly. “It made me have to think outside the box, but also humbled me to realize that sometimes less is more, and served as a reminder that there can be a need to go back to basics”, Daniel talked to Delish.
The show introduced Daniel as the owner of Daniel Corpuz Chocolatier shop. That, he is a New York City-based pastry chef, chocolatier, and sugar artist.
