Unifine supports Team GB at US Pastry Championships

23 June 2010

UK chefs participating in the Amoretti 2010 World Pastry Team Championship are going to be doing it with a little help from Unifine when they make their way to Arizona in July

For Team GB, captained by Pastry Chef Instructor from Westminster Kingsway College, Javier Mercado, will be using pallets donated by ingredient supplier Unifine Food & Bake Ingredients when they travel West to compete at the Desert Ridge Resort in Phoenix.

‘Unifine was able to supply its help and expertise for the logistics involved in this important trans-Atlantic competition which requires a vast amount of equipment, resources and ingredients,’ says Gary Hunter, Team GB's manager and competition judge. Gary is a veteran of many international competitions and is also the Head of Culinary Arts at Westminster.

The subject of this year's Championship is 'Childhood' and GB's team of three will be expected to depict their subject using key ingredients - chocolate, sugar and pastillage. They are competing for the title of The World's Best Pastry Chef Team 2010. The competition runs from July 5-6th and follows on from the World Pastry Forum, being held at the same venue.

'Without the support of Unifine Food & Bake Ingredients, it wouldn't have been possible for the UK to send a team to these Championships and compete with the best from other countries such as Japan and the USA,' adds Gary Hunter. 'It is reassuring to know that Unifine supports major and future talent from these shores and has the vision to help the very first UK team to ever qualify for this competition.'
