The selection committee composed of Gilles Renusson, President of Club Coupe du Monde U.S.A., Anthony Valla, Vice-President and CEO of Valrhona U.S.A., Ewald Notter and Donald Wressell, both Official Team Coaches, are happy to introduce the members of TEAM U.S.A. 2015 which will represent the United States of America in the fourteenth Coupe du Monde de la Pâtisserie in Lyon, France in January 2015.

 

John Kraus – Team Captain – Pastry Chef/Owner – Patisserie 46  Minneapolis MN

Joshua Johnson – Pastry Chef – Vanille Chicago IL

Scott Green – Executive Pastry Chef – The Langham Hotel Chicago IL

 

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.

Posted by Shirley Hall on Oct 17, 2013 3:25:00 PM

We are at the 4 month countdown until the 25th Annual U.S. Pastry Competition.  Entries forms are due (postmarked December 3, 2013).  

Paris Gourmet recently exhibited at the IBIE Show in Las Vegas where pastry chef guests (potential competitors) stopped by our U.S. Pastry Competition hospitality lounge. The 2014 official theme, “Film Animation”, was well-received with great feedback and lots of interest by the chefs.  We anticipate showpieces with a lot of whimsy and color.  As always our jury panel and rules emphasize that TASTE is foremost.  Visitors of the U.S. Pastry Competition hospitality lounge also enjoyed a new short documentary about last year’s event.
