European Pastry Cup 2018
My role as President for the UK Pastry Team had ended after winning 2 European Pastry Cups 2012/2014 and competed at the 3 World Finals 2013/2015/2017. The UK was now firmly in the top 5 Teams at Coupe du Monde de la Pâtisserie and with the highest ranking to date of 6th Place in the Finals. I was still working with the committee and supporting the new team for 2019 finals, and Gabriel PAILLASSON had invited me to be Honorary President Judge at The European Pastry Cup 2018 Turin Italy, this was a great Honour and accepted gladly in appreciation for the work I had done with the UK Pastry Team.

European Pastry Cup 2012
Throwback a decade ago 2011 working as Executive Pastry Chef for The Savoy London I was asked if I would be interested to apply for president of the UK team. After a meeting and some discussions it was agreed and a solid committee was formed to help develop the UK Team.
The first selection was held at West London College & the team chosen just after, it was now October 2011.
We had just over 3 months until the European Cup in January, Javier Mercado & Nicolas Bouhelier and me, worked solid day and night to prepare for the European Cup in Paris.
On the final it was said “that this is probably first time the British National Anthem has been played at an international Cooking Competition”.
