Now in its fourth year, the National Showpiece Championship calls for competitors to push the boundaries of normal showpiece construction, but without requiring huge financial and personal sacrifices from competitors. Rather than constraining chefs with endless rules and regulations, the National Showpiece Championship is a new form of competition that encourages chef to compete at the highest level possible.
Pastry Live will host the fourth annual event at its new location, 200 Peachtree, Atlanta’s most centrally–located and convenient event venue. After three successful years, the event’s overwhelming growth prompted the venue change in order to further expand its offerings while keeping the integrity of the event intact.
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!
