The brainchild of Guido Pozzebon, a patisserie trainer at Holmesglen TAFE, the inaugural challenge in 2019 allowed the four teams of two students to showcase their skills and complete to see who would earn the title of the best patisserie students in the state. Passionate about giving the next generation of pastry chefs opportunities to grow and showcase all they have learned, Guido was inspired to invite other schools to complete.
“What we discovered was that there was plenty of competitions for baking or cookery students, but a lack of opportunities for patisserie students. So after eighteen months of planning, we managed to get the competition off the ground”, he said at the time.
The competition was a great success and the Victorian TAFE Patisserie Challenge committee, led by Franck Poirier of Chisholm Institute, believes it will only go from strength to strength.
