Last Thursday I went to The Abastur Exposition here in Mexico City.
I pretty much went to witness who was going to be the pastry team that represented Mexico on the
Coupe Du monde Du patisserie at Lyon france.
At abastur 2011 the national finals took place, six teams compited for the prestigious spot.
It was really amazing to see some of my favorite chefs displaying their works of art, seeing those sugar and chocolate sculptures were just massive. the level of concentration and techniques that some chefs showed were really REALLY cool to see.
Here is the winners list.
