- 2023 round
This past July, weeks before the semi-finals in Chile, Chefs Canada announced the formation of a national pastry team for the first time in over 15 years. Though the team only had a few short months to train at the National Training Center at Montreal’s ITHQ, they ranked 5th, and won a wild card given by the international jury. As the most prestigious stage for pastry art on the planet, the competition is a window into the latest trends and techniques, showcasing the best creative minds from around the world competing for a chance to win the title of World Pastry Champ.
Chefs Canada, the organization that manages our national culinary teams, is managing the selection of two bakers (one chocolate master and one sugar specialist) to take the reins of the World Pastry Cup Team Canada. Expectations are high for the contenders! In addition to experience, creative mastery, stellar execution and unparalleled technical skills, the candidates need to be able to perform under pressure, build relationships with chefs, industry professionals, medias, brands and sponsors from coast to coast.
Good luck to all chefs!
