Pastry Live 2015 – Showpiece Championship Team Captains Announced

ATLANTA - June 23, 2015 - PRLog -- Announcing the 2015 Showpiece Championship team captains! These chefs are among the top in the industry, possessing impressive skills in chocolate and sugar work. Starting at 8:00 AM on Tuesday, August 25th, each team will have seven hours to finish their showpieces. With this year’s theme being “Toys,” each team will choose from either chocolate or sugar to showcase their talents and ingenuity while competing for the title of Showpiece Champions.

The 2015 Showpiece Championship Team Captains are:

Kengo Akabame, Imperial Hotel Tokyo
Julie Eslinger, Colorado Convention Center
Robert Nieto, Jackson Family Wines
Matthew Ratliff, The Everglades Club
Saber Rejbi, Advanced Gourmet
Cori Schlemmer, L'Auberge Casino Resort Lake Charles
Lionel Touya, Jean-Marie Auboine Chocolates

Now in its fifth year, the 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 Showpiece Championship is a new form of competition that encourages chef to compete at the highest level possible.

Pastry Live will host its fifth year at its newly found home, 200 Peachtree, Atlanta’s most centrally–located and convenient event venue. After four successful years, the event’s overwhelming growth prompted the venue change last year in order to further expand its offerings while keeping the integrity of the event intact.

With the start of year five, the anticipation for this year is high. Come join us at this memorable event!
