Japan wins World Baking Cup

A team of patissiers from Japan has won this year’s World Baking Cup, also known as “The Coupe du Monde de la Boulangerie.”

The international event is held every three years. This year, it was held in France on March 8, drawing many participants from all over the world, including Japan, the United States, Taiwan and South Korea.

The Japanese team consisted of Takuya Sasaki, 41, Yasuo Hatanaka, 42, and Yuki Osada, 32, all from Kanazawa. Their winning entry was a pastry based on the image of a crane flapping its wings. The theme was a “bonds.”

Hatanaka commented, “I heard that cranes are birds that have close bonds. We wanted to reflect the strong bonds of our team and also to show that Japan was bonding together after last year’s disaster.”

Why do I want to yell "Yakitate!" after reading this?

Yakitate is the name of an anime about a young boy's quest to make bread. It's hilarious but it does educate you about different breads as well various competitions.

The pastries are beautiful. Congratulations to the Japanese team.

Fyi, these are not pastries.
And that is also why it is the "Coupe du monde de la boulangerie" and not "patisserie". ^^
