The team will train at Vanille Patisserie in Chicago and at the Secchia Institute for Culinary Education at Grand Rapids Community College in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
We are confident that this team will build on the experience of all previous teams and carry on the reputation for excellence that U.S. Pastry Teams have enjoyed during the thirteen previous editions of the Coupe du Monde de la Pâtisserie.
We look forward to climbing on the podium and show the world that U.S. pastry chefs are some of the best in the world.
Team U.S.A participation to the 2015 Coupe du Monde de la Pâtisserie would not be possible without the generous and loyal support of sponsors like Paris Gourmet and Ravifruit.
