Holy pastries. The 15th Annual Amoretti World Pastry Forum and Team Championship is taking over Red Rock Resort July 4-9 with a new world pastry champion team crowned as the finale of the event.
The event is geared toward industry insiders with forums and classes on making gelato, cake decorating, chocolate making, interesting flavor combinations, how to start your own bakery and more. The excitement builds when international teams of three representing China, Japan, Netherlands, Mexico, Morocco, South Korea and the United States spend 13 hours to complete sugar and chocolate sculptures covering astrology and horoscopes.
The teams will be judged by a panel of experts on artistry, technical merit, work ethic, hygiene and degustation. The awards ceremony on July 9 will be followed by a cocktail reception and a gala dinner honoring the winners.
