Michelle Goh 3rd Place, Gary Willis, Gabriella Harianto 2nd Place, Chef Pascal Javier, Yi-Ting Gao 1st Place, and Chef Adriano Zumbo at the Callebaut Student Showpiece Challenge. Note the clever use of our Gear Molds.
Hail to great teachers! Thanks to the vision and organization of Chef Andre Sandison, Head Culinary Teacher at Le Cordon Bleu Sydney, and his team, 17 pastry student competitors had the chance to present their best at The Callebaut Student Showpiece Challenge. This was their first showpiece competition, with many having started working with chocolate within the past six months. The students showcased their imaginations, passions and techniques by creating beautiful showpieces in front of the esteemed panel of judges.
The results were really impressive; 3rd place Michelle Goh, a Superior Patisserie Student, 2nd Gabriella Harianto, an Intermediate Patisserie Student, and 1st place, Yi-Ting Gao, an Intermediate Patisserie Student. We are very proud sponsors of such events, promoting talented, aspiring pastry chefs.
Thank you for your dedication Chef Sandison and the Le Cordon Bleu team!
