It’s Springtime for Egypt. After popular protest resulted in Mubarak stepping down as President of Egypt, a renewed air of democratic possibilities has inspired its citizens. Pastry Chefs Ahmed Abdelslam Younes, Ahmed Kamel and Haider Alkaabi competed as team Egypt in the African Pastry Cup and took 1st place!
The teams from Tunisia and Morocco whom they competed against, had both participated in the Coupe du Monde de la Patisserie in Lyon earlier this year. President and founder of the original event, Gabriel Paillasson, honored the winners and welcomed them to the next World Cup Pastry in 2013.
Congratulations! We await the work of Egypt’s citizens with much anticipation.
