Academy of Pastry Arts India chefs Mukesh Singh Rawat and Alisha Faleiro will represent the country at the 2018 essay of the Asia Pastry Cup, which is slated to take place at the Singapore Expo- Food and Hotels Asia on April 24 and 25. It is associated with the Club Coupe De Monde, and is also the official selection platform for Asia to the World Pastry Cup.

They won the India Pastry Cup 2017 and will be accompanied to the competition by Niklesh Sharma, chef and founder, Academy of Pastry Arts Group. Sharma manages the operations of all its centres across India, Malaysia and the Philippines, as well as the upcoming projects in Singapore and Indonesia.

Rawat captained Team India at the 2016 essay, bagged the bronze medal and was adjudged Asia’s Most Promising Talent. He was also the team captain at the World Pastry Cup in 2017. Faleiro won the Callebaut Patissier of the Year Award, India, for 2017.  

The competition is a rigorous eight-hour contest in which a team of two pastry chefs have to create a sugar showpiece, a chocolate showpiece, one plated dessert of 18 portions and one chocolate cake of three portions.

The competition will be live, and all products will have to be made from scratch at the venue itself, within the given time frame. The top three teams will get a direct entry into the World Pastry Cup, along with two wild card entries, making it a total of five Asian countries.

“At such international events, India is emerging as a strong contender, and the traditional strong teams, like France, Italy, etc., are taking us seriously. We hope to continuously add to our growth by participating in extensive events like these. Through these platforms, we aim to bring out the best of every pastry chef and provide them their share of limelight,” said Sharma.
