On Sunday, September 6, the name of the winner of the prestigious “Sucre d’Or” will be announced. This award, given every ten years by the French company Déco Relief, is given to those artistic sugar professionals who have made their mark in terms of style, aesthetics, technique and innovation in the last decade.
Considered by the industry as a kind of “Oscar”, it has existed for more than 20 years. In 1997, the first chef to receive it was MOF Gabriel Paillasson, a prophet of French pastry, the one who brought the Coupe du Monde de la Pâtisserie to life, and widely recognized with numerous distinctions. In 2007 it went to Stephane Klein, the indisputable sugar artist who gives courses and masterclasses at his workshop in Belfort.
In 2020, the award will be granted again, three years later than planned since in 2017 the judges decided that there was no one who met the required standards. The ceremony will take place for the first time in Italy with guests of honor Iginio Massari and Gabriel Paillasson, who will present the award to the winner.
