Due to the health crisis and just like in 2020, the Championnat de France du Dessert has been forced to change its usual dates this year. The regional qualifiers will take place between the end of March and the end of June, while the grand national final will be held on October 5 and 6 at the Lycée Georges Baptiste de Canteleu (France).
Organized by Cultures Sucre, the theme of the 47th edition of the competition is eco-responsibility, not only understood from the point of view of the seasonality of the products but also respect for the management of raw materials, the type of packaging used, the way in which the ingredients are produced, and more. It is certainly an additional challenge because contestants will no longer be evaluated by their dessert alone, but will be able to earn up to 30 extra points for adopting eco-responsible practices.
“As catering professionals, we all have a social and environmental responsibility to our customers. Through the recipes that the contestants will offer during the championship, I wish to rediscover this search for quality, respect for the product and the environment, but also to discover the riches of the region through flavors, the work of producers, and artisans”, says Philippe Mille, president of this edition.
The first finalists of this edition has been Aurélia Diambou (restaurant Chatron) and Céline Luchilo for the junior category
