In the coming weeks, two unforgettable bakery competitions will be held in Nantes within the framework of the trade show Serbotel, a meeting point for catering professionals, hospitality and food: the 19th Coupe d’Europe de la Boulangerie Artisanale and the 6th Mondial du Pain.
On Sunday October 22, the Coupe d’Europe de la Boulangerie Artisanale will take place, organized by the Fédération des Boulangers de Loire-Atlantique. Under the theme “Tales and legends of your country”, the competitors will have to make an artistic piece with a maximum dimension of 80 x 80 x 80, plus a basket with six varieties of bread and a tray with 6 types of viennoiseries, with different shapes and compositions in both cases. Originality, creativity and efficiency will be valued. The countries that will compete are Belgium, Denmark, Spain, France, Italy, Netherlands, and Portugal.
On Monday 23 and Tuesday 24 October, 17 teams from five continents (Algeria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, China, Ivory Coast, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Mali, Netherlands, Peru, Philippines, Taiwan, and the United States) will weigh their forces before an international jury to win the 6th edition of the Mondial du Pain (Bread World Cup), which aims to reflect the profession’s ability to adapt to the current demands of consumers. Each team, consisting of a candidate with at least 5 years’ experience and an assistant under the age of 22, will have 9 hours to make bread from around the world, a prestigious viennoiserie, an art piece, a balanced sandwich, bread from organic products, and nutritious bread. Although only one will win the competition, six special prizes will be awarded: International Trophy of Ambassadors, “Flavor and Nutrition” Special Prize, Best Assistant Prize, Bio Special Prize, Viennoiserie Special Prize, and Special Artistic Prize.
