In 2008, DGF and Europain came together to organize one of the world’s most prestigious patisserie competitions. Following national and/or continental heats, young talents proudly represent their country at the Mondial Des Arts Sucrés, which take place at EUROPAIN exhibition all even years. 2014 was the fourth edition of the MDAS.
The difference to other competitions? A unique concept: a mixed team (one man and one woman). It is important to know that it does not exist yet any competition in the international scene based on mixed team which is quite unique!
Their challenge? Preparing thirteen culinary creations in twenty hours, over two days. The rich and comprehensive programme includes:
• One pastillage showpiece
• One sugar showpiece
• One chocolate showpiece
• Three fresh petits fours (tartlet, choux pastry and free choice)
• Three small cakes (chocolate, praline and fruit)
• Three chocolate bonbons (fruit ganache, praline and free choice)
• Two plated desserts (hot and cold)
2014 edition keys of success? The "Cube". For the second time, the Mondial Des Arts Sucrés joined the Cube, a much-talked-about concept developed by Europain. The Cube is unique in bringing together three world‑renowned competitions in the same venue. These three complementary events celebrated the food services industry: the Bocuse d’Or for chefs, Coupe du Monde de la Boulangerie for bakers and Mondial Des Arts Sucrés for pastry chefs-chocolatiers.
The fourth edition was a big success and the competition is now known as one of the most difficult and spectacular pastry cup in the world.
