Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Costa Rica, Guatemala and Mexico are the six countries qualified for the Copa Maya 2014, in the presence of the President founder of the Coupe du Monde de la Pâtisserie, Gabriel Paillasson.
Those teams gather 12 of the most prodigious and promising chefs from Latin America! Working in tandem, they all reached the first place of the Coupe du Monde de la Pâtisserie national contests, and they have been selected by the International Organisation Committee
Each team is composed of two chefs specialised either in sugar or in chocolate art. This is a major event because the three best teams will be qualified for the final in Lyon the 25th and the 26th January 2015. This year, Sonia Arias is the honorary President of the competition.
Graduated from the « Culinary Institute of America » she worked in three different restaurants in New York (the « Daniel », the « Danube », the « Bouley »), before opening her own restaurant in Mexico in 2006 : the « Jaso ».
