World Pastry Cup: The European Continental Selection to Take Place During Sirha Europain in January

After an Italian victory at Sirha Lyon last September, a new cycle is beginning for the World Pastry Cup presided by Pierre Hermé. The European continental selection will be held during Sirha Europain, on 24 and 25 January 2022 in Paris Porte de Versailles.

Its Honorary President, François Perret, recently awarded for his milk brioche, is none other than the Pastry Chef of the Ritz Paris and the Best Restaurant Pastry Chef in the World 2019.

On the menu for these two days: 6 teams will face each other around 5 events to be completed in 5 hours: Belgium and Spain, who are making their comeback in the competition, Denmark – with a 100% female team – as well as the United Kingdom, Russia and Sweden.

They will compete on two artistic pieces (one in sugar and one in chocolate), as well as on three tasting tests:

– an ice lolly (new event), integrated into the sugar art piece

– a frozen fruit dessert, integrated into the chocolate artistic piece

– and a restaurant dessert (mainly chocolate), judged by a jury of restaurant chefs and pastry chefs.

Please note: Italy, Japan and France having reached the podium in September during the 2021 final, the three countries are automatically qualified for the 2023 Pastry World Cup.
