Message From The Coach
As you will see Australia had great success and won the Food Critic, William Wongso award, and also importantly the Young Bakery Category with John Reminis. John will now go to Paris to represent Australia at the Bakery World Cup in the Young Baker Category, this we celebrate, to have a young Australian Baker attending Europain, and to be involved in the Bakery World Cup is amazing. We will work with our contacts now in Europe to give John further training to continue his development, and prepare him for the challenge ahead.
The Australian Team were unfortunately unable to achieve their goal to qualify for the Bakery World Cup in Paris. However, I must say that as a coach, I have never been more impressed, or proud of a team, or group of individuals. The Australian Baking Team produced high quality items, in extremely difficult circumstances and in the end only missed out on qualification by 20 points over a total of 1000. They were at all times professional in their approach, and conduct, and openly praised for their performance.
There is no part of their performance where I can say that I was disappointed, or if we had done something different it would have made the difference, it was in the end personal preferences of the Jury.
So much though has been achieved through this process, we now have 3 more bakers with international competition experience, and a massive increase in skill and knowledge to pass onto those they come into contact with. These team members over the coming year will be involved in demonstrations, and classes to help pass on the things learnt as part of the process. They have all committed to being involved in training, and mentoring the next team as well.
Southern Cross Baking Group, continues to grow our base of experience and look forward to continuing the relationships we have built with you all.
Thank you for all you support of the Australian Baking Team, without you we could not have achieved what we did. Our work and focus continues as we prepare John Reminis for his Paris adventure.
As a thank you for all the support, the team would like to share a PDF copy of both recipe books created by Fivespice Creative. We are going to release a hard cover limited edition version of both books combined with photo gallery of the highlights of the experience. If you would like to pre order your copy please contact us.
