With the France team, the Franco-Moroccan Nabil Moudni, head pastry chef of Fournil Gascon, finished in third place at the World Pastry Cup in Lyon.
Disappointment for Nabil Moudni. While he coveted the first place at the world cup of pastry chefs with the French team composed of Fabien Emery, European champion of art sugar, pastry chef of the house Lenôtre in Paris, Kevin Ollivier, pastry chef of the Hôtel du Père Bise in Annecy (5 stars) and Stéphane Glacier, former best worker in France and world pastry champion, the head pastry chef of Fournil Gascon finished in third place.
“When you participate, it’s to win. We were expected because France let slip the trophy for two years. But I will not give up until I get a significant reward, “the representative of the Regtat company had promised in Marmande.
This former captain of the Morocco team has made a name for himself in the world of pastry making in France. He is known on the world circuit for pastry making and ice sculpture, his specialty. A naturalized Frenchman, this 39-year-old Franco-Moroccan was selected from among 55 candidates to join this team from France. Happy to participate in the world cup of pastry chefs in Lyon, he was unable to fulfill his dream of winning the title of champion. His team climbed to third place behind Italy and Japan out of 22 countries competing.
