Since its inception, The World Pastry Team Championship has become one of the most talked about events in the world of pastry.
The competition features up to 12 teams, each with 3 professional pastry chefs who labor for 13 hours over the course of two days. A National Team Pastry Championship is held in odd numbered years with the winning team representing the United States in the World event the following year.
To be eligible to compete, chefs must be living and working in the country they represent for no less than two years prior to the competition. For the National Pastry Team Championship, professional pastry chefs living and working in the U.S. are invited to submit their credentials and achievements to be considered for a captaincy spot in the competition. A selection committee of noted pastry chefs reviews the applications and the captains are chosen and the captains select their teams. For the World Pastry Team Championship, noted pastry chefs from the country are invited by the organizing committee to bring a team to the United States to compete.
