Great exhibition in Rimini (Italy) for the pastry, gelato, bread and chocolate artisans
In the recent edition of the International under-24 Pastry Championships in Rimini, the main dialogue was between the two voices of Japan and France. The only voice that interrupted this conversation was that of Taiwan, who finished in third place.
Whether it is the World Junior Pastry Championship or the Star of Sugar, the most important pastry events in the next edition of Sigep will share the same theme: universal Italian icons. The brands of Vespa and Ferrari, the Italian Food Style and the DNA of Italian pastry cooking will serve as inspiration for these national and international competitions. It will truly be an exercise in reinforcing the Italian identity within a glorious setting.
Sigep is, undoubtedly, one of the world’s major meeting points for the ice cream, pastry and bread industries. This exhibition is already preparing its 36th edition, and it has been announced that bread will be playing an important part in it, in response to the important evolution this sector is experiencing.
The Junior World Pastry Championship, with a total of ten different teams participating in it, will be the international pastry competition triggering the next edition of SIGEP. And this will only be the beginning of an extensive program of pastry competitions which will take part during the five days of the fair, together with sweet exhibitions which with definitely make this edition more attractive.
The great Italian exhibition of ice cream and pastry will next year be strengthened by two events running simultaneously: RHEX (restaurant and café industry) and AB Tech Expo (bakery). The organisers expect to beat the spectacular attendence figures of last year’s edition.
The great festival of world ice cream, Sigep (Rimini, 18th to 22nd January), ends its most successful year yet. For the first time in its long history, a grand total of 173,904 professionals visited the event, a 20.1% increase over last year (almost 30,000 more visitors).
Everything is ready for the opening of the great festival of ice cream, with the World Cup of Ice Cream as the focal point for the media. But pastry is gaining as much popularity each year as ice cream. Sigep 2014 (in the city of Rimini, Italy) will not only be the base for interesting and unique competitions, such as The Pastry Queen, reserved only for pastry chefs, but it will also host a large number of exhibitions and thematic areas related to pastry.
Winner of the sugar showpiece competition on the very first day Sigep was inaugurated, The Star of Sugar, Davide Malizia showed once again yesterday that he is at his best after leading the Italian team straight to victory during the Junior Pastry World Cup.
