«Haute» pastry competition
The International Confectionery Art Competition is an international pastry competition which has embodied a varied combination of forms over the past 10 years: of cultures, synonymous to richness; of technique, flavour, taste and fragrance; of people, as pastry is about sharing and constitutes a common language, mode of expression, and an opportunity to exchange no matter where you come from.

THIS COMPETITION IS AT THE SAME TIME THE FRUIT, AND THE VECTOR OF THIS DIVERSITY. IT IS THE MEANS OF ENDORSING AN OPEN VISION OF SOCIETY.

History of an art
The International Confectionery Art Competition was born in 2008, the fruit of the imagination of 2 OF THE BEST CRAFTSMEN IN FRANCE PASTRY-CONFECTIONERS.

Their extensive travels around the world revealed the evident fact of the necessity to organise this unique and innovative competition.

Avant-gardist, the International Confectionery Art Competition grasped at the outset the challenges of a multicultural society and the need to put women on the same level as men. Thus, this international competition has succeeded in upsetting the established codes of the pastry sector, while at the same time offering talent from all over the world the opportunity to express their Art.

Every two years at the Parc des Expositions in Paris, during the International Trade Fair EUROPAIN, for catering and food industry professionals, 16 nations composed of a woman Chef and man
Chef live together, exchange, share their know-how, and skills, in the aim to win the coveted title of WORLD CHAMPION OF THE CONFECTIONERY ARTS.
