TWC19 European Selections — Bruxelles
BRUXELLES, 11th, 12th and 14th October 2019 – EUROPEAN SELECTIONS
Eighty competitors fought with mascarpone and savoiardi in the capital of Europe, but only eight of them became semifinalists of the Tiramisù World Cup (November 3 in Treviso). At the selections at City2, in the heart of the city, the most disparate recipes from amateur chefs (strictly non-professionals) from the United States, Holland, Germany, England and – certainly – many Italians who now live permanently in Belgium have been presented. Among the recipes that could be tasted, we highlight the pistachio Tiramisù, the caramel Tiramisù, a preparation with violet flowers and cream of candy, another with gold leaves and then the one with speculoos, the typical Belgian biscuit: all recipes were accompanied by a toast with Moscato d’Asti docg, the official wine of the “European Selections”.
The winner was chosen by a jury of experts, composed of chefs from the Federation Italian Chefs in Belgium and chaired by Pino Nacci: «The level of Tiramisu in the competition was really high, with some surprises in the combinations that aroused the interest of us professionals. Best wishes to these competitors and sincere congratulations to Francesco Redi for the idea and organization of this event».
Giuseppe Franco’s Tiramisu, born in 1968 in Pordenone, won the final stage of the “European Selections” in Brussels, in its original recipe. Arrived directly from Italy to participate in these selections, the Friulian has surpassed the other semifinalists who – like him – will compete on Sunday, November 3 in Treviso for the title of champion of the Tiramisu World Cup 2019.
