From 3rd to 5th February, the much-anticipated Masters de la Boulangerie organised by Lesaffre, took place, at the heart of the Europain show in Paris.
Artists-experts in international baking, also visionaries and pioneers for their profession, 3 new elite bakers have just been awarded the honorary title of 2018 World Master Baker :
- Peter BIENEFELT – Nutritional Bread Making (Netherlands)
Bake & Dine Challenge Bread takes center plate: “Tasty Highlight” A multi-flavoured bread that dresses and completes a laid table, to arouse guests’ curiosity.
- Déborah OTT – Gourmet Baking (France)
Creation & Innovation Challenge The Wow factor Viennese pastry: “The Parisienne” A brioche with passion fruit cream… and also – a female bust, enrobed in lace, which evokes the French era of Parisian cancan evenings.
- Peng-Chieh WANG – Artistic Bread Making (Taiwan)
Art of dough challenge The multi-coloured spectacle of the General and his officers is one of the best-known celebrations in Taiwanese religious art. The battle crown, the make-up, the touches of gold and the decoration, the drum and the trident have been painstakingly reproduced. Without forgetting the use of Taiwanese fruits like lychee and rose. A section of the piece was for tasting… revealing its flavours of prune and flowers.
Men and women who are writing a new page in the history of baking…
« As organiser, Lesaffre showcased its vision of the bakery of tomorrow and the candidates all got on board. We took a risk, they did too – and the results are clear to see! »
