GELATO WORLD CUP: BIRTH OF THE ITALIAN AND FRENCH CLUBS

THE HOUSES OF CHAMPIONS ARE BORN: THEY WILL SUPPORT THE ITALIAN AND FRENCH TEAMS AND THEY WILL ORGANIZE EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS

Two new milestones for Coppa del Mondo della Gelateria, event organized by SIGEP – Italian Exhibition Group (IEG) and Gelato & Cultura from 19 to 21 January 2020 at the South Hall of the 41st International Trade Show of Artisan Gelato, Pastry, Bakery and the Coffee World. Italy and France, which have won in a respectful and alternative way the various editions, in 2020 for the first time in many years will finally face each other vis-à-vis. And they’ll have their own “Coppa del Mondo della Gelateria” clubs. Both of them have been established just a few days ago.

An important goal has finally been achieved” says Pierpaolo Magni, award-winning gelato and pastry chef, world-champion and newly elected President of Club Italia. On 12 June, the founders met at Cast Alimenti: the President is Pierpaolo Magni, the VP is Amelio Mazzella, and in the group there are Leonardo Ceschin, Antonio Capuano, Luigi Tirabassi, Gaetano Mignano, Stefano Venier, Cesare Puglisi of Editrade and Emanuela Balestrino of Chiriotti.

“The House of Champions is now ‘reality’,” continues Magni, “we are proud to be Italian and to represent our excellence. We are united to support the champions of today and tomorrow. We will contribute in terms of culture, know-how, experience”. A precious heritage that will make a difference in the long and challenging preparation of the Italian team, represented on the day of the foundation by chef Marco Martinelli. He thanked the founders on behalf of all the team: the gelato chef Eugenio Morrone, the pastry-chef and chocolatier Massimo Carnio, the ice sculptor Ciro Chiummo. Italy will be trained by another World Champion, Beppo Tonon, also called “the gelato esthete” because of his passion for fruit and vegetable carvings.

A few days earlier at the Ecole Valrhona in Tan l’Hermitage, after the selections of the 2020 team, Club France was formed, on the initiative of the late president CNGF (Confédération Nationale des Glaciers de France) Elie Cazaussus. The priority is to support the team which will compete at Coppa del Mondo della Gelateria, starting from the 9th edition, on 19 to 21 January 2020 in the South Hall at IEG Rimini Expo Centre (Italy). The team leader will be Stephane Auge’, Mof and award-winning gelato champion, then France will be represented by Franck Fouchereau, Yoann Hasselbein, Adrien Lamy and Francois Simon.

Vincent Boue’, Mof 2018, coordinated the inaugural event. Our precious friend Elie Cazaussus wanted it “to frame and support French gelato chefs in national and international competitions“. The Honorary President is Jean-Claud David, the coordinator Emmanuel Ryon. One-of-a-kind champions have already joined the Club: Cristophe Domange, Remi Montagne, Christophe Bouret, Stephane Auge’, Jean Thomas Schneider, Benoit Charvet and Gerard Cabiron.

Elie won many competitions – says Stephane Auge’he insisted to create a community able to help the teams of the future to be trained at the best and win. Another goal was to collect and share gelato knowledge. The winners of the Bocuse d’Or have a club, so do the winners of the Coupe du Monde de la Patisserie: it was time to create our own. We hope that this will help them to maintain high levels over time, to improve and to grow in our community”.

The Clubs also have the indirect goal of increasing the reputation and the image of gelato chefs to the general public.

With their support, the Italian and French teams will give their opponents a run for their money in January 2020.”. President Giancarlo Timballo invites all nations to create support clubs for their teams. Which will be the next club to come to life?

GELATO WORLD CUP 2020: THE 12 PARTICIPATING NATIONS HAVE BEEN REVEALED

180 days to go to the ninth edition of the Coppa del Mondo della Gelateria (Gelato World Cup), and the national teams selected for the 2020 Gelato World Cup have finally been announced. They span from Asia to Latin America, with a European heart that has never been so strong. The biennial event signed by SIGEP-Italian Exhibition Group and Gelato&Cultura confirms the willingness to compare the knowledge, the creativity and the innovation of gelato chefs, pastry chefs, ice carvers and executive chefs that have been selected as the best experts throughout five continents.

The countries that will surprise you with tantalizing gelato cakes, sublime frozen desserts and bright ice sculptures, on 19-21 January 2020 in the South Hall at IEG Rimini Expo Centre (Italy), are Mexico, Singapore, Malaysia, Japan, Germany, Italy, France, Spain, Poland, Argentina, Colombia and Hungary.

This is the first edition where all the teams have been officially selected by the Committee of the “Coppa del Mondo della Gelateria,” as they supervised different competitions around the world. The selection process started 16 months ago with the competition at Feria Internacional del Helado in Mexico City (February 2018). It was followed by the Asian Gelato Cup at FHA in Singapore (April 2018), the Longarone Eis Challenge (December 2018), and Sigep Gelato d’Oro (January 2019). The selections in Warsaw (Expo Sweet) and Madrid (Intersicop) occurred in February 2019. Recent competitions were held at the Valrhona headquarters in Tain L’Hermitage, at Fithep in Buenos Aires and in Budapest (Hungary).

After years of alternating participation, France and Italy will finally fight on the same stage. These countries have already marked precise strategies and expectations are high!

The President of Coppa del Mondo della Gelateria, Giancarlo Timballo, says:

“Each team will be composed of a Gelato Chef, a Pastry Chef, an Executive Chef and an Ice Carver, all coordinated by a Captain. What can we expect? 60 competitors, 3 race commissioners, 14 technical judges, 7 international media jurors, 3 artistic jurors, 12 masters of Club Italia as assistants to the teams,  8 race tests in 3 days (gelato/sorbet, glass single-portion, mystery box, gelato-cake, entrée of haute cuisine, ice- and brittle- sculptures and the new trend of gelato snacks, in addition to the final Grand Buffet, which is the presentation of all the creations)”.
