The USA’s training program to win the Coupe du Monde de la Pâtisserie

Jan. 5, 2017; So Good

USA is one of the Top 7 Countries which, having registered the highest scores in the last three editions of the Coupe du Monde of the Pâtisserie, has a direct ticket to the final this January in Lyon. “We will compete side by side teams with more resources and more favorable training environments, but we still believe we have a chance to shine brightly with a new training program. We hope to have planted the seeds for future participants,” say Gilles Renusson and Anthony Valla, president and vice president of the Club Coupe du Monde USA respectively.

… It has been a long preparation process in which everyone involved has invested time and effort. The first meetings and brainstorming took place at the end of 2015 at Midwest Import in a suburb of Chicago, and they began to look for the best original ways to represent the idea of acrobats in all aspects of the competition. The team was guided again by their loyal group of advisors. Nick Antonakis and Robin Van Rooyen from Grand Rapids Community College Art Department contributed their precious graphic and design expertise. Randy Finch and Luba Petrash were with Victor when planning his ice carving. Sylvain Leroy was again driving the tastings, and Roy, Christophe, and Ewald Notter provided directions about the chocolate and sugar sculptures.

To all those new breweries included that have opened their doors since the original edition was published, welcome to the party in Grand Rapids: Atwater GR, Bier Distillery (yep, they brew, too), Creston Brewery, Elk Brewing (Comstock Park), Greyline Brewing Co., New Holland Brewings The Knickerbocker Brewpub & Distillery, Schmohz Brewing Co.
