Coupe Europe de la Pâtisserie: a première in the heart of Paris
For the Coupe Europe de la Pâtisserie, 2020 will be remarkable in several respects. After Geneva and Turin, the travelling event ,for the first time since its creation, will take place in the heart of the capital.
8 teams selected from all over Europe will challenge each other on January 12 and 13, 2020 in an exceptional show. They will need to draw on their very best skills and talents in chocolate and sugar art, to win a ticket for the world grand finale that will be held on 24 and 25 January 2021 as part of the Sirha Lyon trade fair.
This European round is one of the most challenging in the selection process and has revealed new nations on the pastry scene. It is also an event that is continually renewing itself. In this respect the rules and regulations of the contest are being updated and the new points and aspects will be presented later this year in September.
