A theme combining world cuisine and the art of French pastry
This year’s competition theme is:
The participants will have to marry culinary traditions and ingredients from various cultures while using traditional French pastry techniques to create original recipes that showcase berries and red fruits.
Each attendee must create a boutique entremets, an individual restaurant dessert, a take-away dessert, and a confectionery developed using natural recipes, so cherished by Andros and applied in the production of all Andros Chef ingredients.
Therefore, only fresh fruits, natural origin ingredients, and Andros Chef ingredients are permitted for use by the participants in their creations.
