The National Showpiece Championship

This is the newest Pastry Live Event

The National Showpiece Championship
Sunday, August 28th, 8:00am–2:00pm

A New Competition
The Pastry Live Showpiece Championship is organized to overcome the time constraints and resource requirements chefs experience in other competitions. We will make it feasible for top level chefs to participate at the highest level competition without making extraordinary personal and financial sacrifices.

Six teams of two chefs will choose either chocolate or sugar as their showpiece medium. To qualify for the competition, each team leader must have received either a medal or best in show at a major pastry competition. The team leader will then be free to choose a partner without any restrictions in regard to prior competitive recognition or experience.

Teams will be given 6 hours in which to prepare their competition entry and have a chance to win a share of over $5,000 in cash and prizes. The winning showpiece will earn its team the title of National Showpiece Champions.

Pastry Profiles has been Quite busy lately. First we just got finished presenting Pastry Live 2 featuring Stephane Treand. It was a great event and we will talk much more about it later, but I have to mention that Chef Treand is one of the nicest chefs I have had the pleasure of working with, a super professional and really down to earth. We are looking forward to another class next year. We also had the pleasure to be at A demo with Nicholas Lodge Called the MASSA ROAD SHOW. Our Elisabeth Walker was there as an attendee and we posted her notes from the event. We have also posted a long awaited article on Michael Rechiutti, Chocolatier from San Francisco. Ellen Anderson was out at his shop and did an amazing interview. We also have posted results and some photos of the World Pastry Team Tryouts. Our summary of the Stephen Durfee Plated dessert class at the Pastry Forum Last summer has also been posted as well as one of his featured recipes. It was an awesome class. We are also posting a slide show from Pastry Live 2, with an article to follow. I hope you have a chance to take a look and enjoy our new features.
