“Train hard, win easy!”
The journey of talented pastry chefs determined to prove that Australia can compete with the best!
Dean Gibson and Jian Yao are two men on a mission: bring their team of pastry chefs to the highest level of competition and represent Australia in the 2013 World Pastry Cup.
Their dream: finally put Australian pastry on the map and showcase to the rest of the world what Aussies can do.
The previous team, comprised of Dean and longtime friend Adriano Zumbo, failed to qualify at the Asian Pastry Cup by only one spot back in 2010. It is now imperative for the new team to train as hard as possible to make it in the top 4 and qualify for the World Cup, which will take place in France, the homeland of patisserie.
After a shaky start, involving several team reshuffles, many showpieces being scrapped or re-designed, the challenge is for the team reach the level of excellence needed to make it to the top.
Will they become the well oiled winning machine dreamt by Dean and Jian?
Can these different personalities hold the intense pressure without clashing?
Will the team finish their showpieces, cakes and desserts in time?
Will the sugar piece stay intact and not shatter into thousands of pieces before reaching the judges table?
Will the team create a legacy to pass on to future generations of Australian pastry chefs?
