Located off of interstates I-75, I-85 and I-20, 200 Peachtree’s Grand Atrium offers ample space, creating the opportunity for not only more chefs to compete, but for the repertoire of competitions to continue growing. With over one-hundred chefs from across the country slated to participate throughout five different competitions, ranging from cake sculpting and chocolate work to plated desserts created in front of a live audience, the competitions are set to be bigger than ever. “Each pastry chef has a specialized area of expertise. Our goal has always been to gather chefs from all of these specialized areas and give them a place to network, share ideas and learn from one another,” Event Producer Paul Bodrogi has stated.
Added this year is The Dessert Cup, which asks chefs to craft desserts in a glass, layering multiple flavors and textures together to create the ultimate verrine. Many competitions, including The Dessert Cup and The Chocolatier of the Year, give paying patrons a chance to not only enjoy the best pastries in the country, but to cast their votes as to who their favorites are. Making its return is Pastry Atlanta, in which Atlanta’s best pastry chefs, bakers and more will share samples of their desserts and pastries with our audience in hopes of winning one of Pastry Live’s “Atlanta’s Best” awards.
In addition to its competitions, Pastry Live’s seminars feature pastry artists who will share their knowledge gleaned from years of experience. It’s a great opportunity to get involved and learn from some of the most talented pastry chefs in the industry. Designed to help seasoned professionals and beginners alike advance to the next level, past demonstrations have featured advanced sugar and chocolate work, confectionery work, airbrushing skills and cake sculpting techniques.
With the start of year four in a brand new location, the anticipation for this year is high. Come join us at this memorable event!
