THE UK PASTRY OPEN
The UK Pastry Club are proud to announce the running of the UK Pastry Open 2017 during The Restaurant Show in October.
The Success story of the UK team – Coupe du Monde de la Pâtisserie
The concept of the Coupe du Monde de la Pâtisserie founded by Gabriel Paillasson in 1989 was simple: bring together young pastry chefs around the world (from 22 different countries in 2017), among the most promising of their generation, and let them make unique desserts and real ephemeral works of art in 10 hours in front of an enthusiastic audience. A jury of the most famous pastry chefs in the world then decide who is the winner.
Teams are composed by a trio of expert in chocolate, sugar and ice, working hundreds of hours of training and recipe development, following a series of qualifying rounds held over a 2 years period.
The UK Pastry Team has consecutively won the European Pastry Championship in Paris (2012) and Geneva (2014), continental round setting themselves up for the most renowned international biennal pastry competition.
With only 5 participation in total, team GB came 9th in 2011 and 2013, 6th in 2015 on top of being part of the TOP 7 (best 7 teams from the last 3 finals), 8th in 2017 and won the best sugar Prize.
Rules have changed for 2019… the TOP 7 teams, automatically qualified for the finale, became a TOP 5. The UK still remain one of the strongest competitors being part of it.
The national round, UK Pastry Open will take place at the restaurant show, October 2nd 2017. The winner will go on to represent the UK at the next Coupe du Monde de la Pâtisserie, January 27 – 28th 2019 during Sirha exhibition with the rest of the team being chosen on the results.
