2019世界盃點心大賽 台灣代表拼奪牌 甜點界奧林匹克 各國菁英齊聚法國里昂

由台北君悅酒店副主廚陳建佑、朋廚烘焙坊主廚陳世育與冰雕大師張瑞銘,加上台北君悅酒店法籍點心行政主廚博豊安(Julien Perrinet)所擔任的隊經理,以及弘光科技大學餐旅系吳朝福為指導教練的台灣代表隊,在2018亞洲盃點心大賽中勝出後,將於本週啟程前去法國里昂,與全球共21國菁英團隊同場較勁,爭奪2019「世界盃點心大賽」(Coupe du Monde de la Pâtisserie)桂冠。

素有甜點界奧林匹克之稱的「世界盃點心大賽」始於1989年,由同時擁有甜點與冰淇淋雙料MOF頭銜(Meilleur Ouvrier de France / 法國最佳工藝職人)的法國甜點大師加百列‧派拉松(Gabriel Paillasson)創辦,每兩年在法國里昂舉行一次。這項在國際上最負盛名與影響力的點心賽事,參賽隊伍以國家為單位,前三屆綜合評分在前七名的國家取得種子隊參賽資格,其他參賽國則是透過歐洲、亞洲、拉丁美洲、非洲四大區點心競賽優勝取得參賽代表權。

今(2019)年舉辦卅週年,世界各國參賽團隊在主辦方指定的「自然與動植物」主題下,於10小時賽程中需完成3個巧克力甜點、3個水果冰淇淋甜點、19個盤式甜點、1個拉糖工藝創作、1個巧克力工藝創作與1個冰雕工藝創作。同時,在創新、趨勢與環保的多重考量下,第十五屆的本次賽事特別新增三個規則:第一是要求所有盤式甜點均以全素(vegan,不得使用任何與動物有關之原料)製作;第二是巧克力甜點中須使用添加蜂蜜製成的脆餅;第三則是拉糖工藝創作中須包括一個尺寸介於25至35公分的透明手工吹糖製品。台灣代表隊成員之一的台北君悅酒店點心坊副主廚陳建佑表示,「原本的規則對參賽者而言就已經是一種挑戰,這次新增的條件不光是考驗技藝,更是團隊合作與默契的比拼。在不到一年的準備時間裡,除了依據主題發想如何呈現以及成品試作,每次的練習、失敗與調整,都是讓自己邁向更好的必經之路。」

本屆世界盃甜點大賽將於法國時間1月27、28兩日舉辦,並在當地時間1月28日晚間宣布金銀銅獎項得主。
