The Craft Guild of Chefs and training organisation A Passion To Inspire are offering young pastry chefs a ‘unique experience’ with the Pastry World Cup champion.

Following a successful collaboration with Nowah, the UK’s exclusive distributor of Kemplex dough sheeters, the Craft Guild of Chefs and A Passion to Inspire have revealed that they will each be offering an educational visit to the pastry school in Milan run by Pastry World Cup champion, Massimo Pica, as part of their awards programmes in 2023.

Pastry chef graduates from the Craft Guild of Chefs Graduate Awards will be invited to experience this unique trip, as will the winner of the Young Pastry Chef 2023 competition organised by A Passion to Inspire.

Craft Guild vice-president, Steve Munkley said: “On behalf of The Craft Guild of Chefs I was thrilled to be asked to put together a talented group of young pastry chefs to experience this amazing educational trip. The feedback from the chefs who attended has been outstanding, with the highlight obviously being the opportunity to learn from a pastry making master.”
