The Youngs Bakery Hopefuls

 

THEY ARE BUILDING THE FUTURE OF BAKERY

As part of the Louis Lesaffre Cup, Lesaffre has created a brand new fringe event alongside its competition: the "Young Bakery Hopefuls".

Selected from 35 countries, during friendly events, there were 5 young bakers running to compete in the world final in 2016 which took place the 5th of February during Europain Show.

THE RESULTS 2016

And it was with emotion and joy that this very first title of World Young Bakery Hopeful was awarded to a passionate and driven young woman: Rianne KUINTJES from the Netherlands. She was trained by the coach Richard JANSEN to create products that blended aesthetics, great tastes and variety. Alongside Rianne, the young Australian John REMINIS received the special food critic's prize. Congratulations to our winners and to all the candidates and coaches for this unique experience and this superb competition.
