On May 30th and 31st, 2021, the Final of the Coupe du Monde de la Pâtisserie will take place, during the Sirha Lyon trade fair, at Eurexpo
2020 was obviously marked by the Covid-19 crisis. The organizers as well as the competitors were forced to adapt the selection rules to local health constraints and event cancellations. While the European continental selection was the only one to be held in January 2020, during the European show in Paris, all the other selections were made on points, based on the podiums of 2018. Neverthless, the passion, the energy and the ambitions of all the teams involved have remained intact, one of their main goal being to celebrate the art of pastry throughout the world.
