Great master bakers at A.B.TECH EXPO and SIGEP…
Great international bread baking will be the key player at the 3rd A.B. TECH EXPO and the 34th SIGEP, being held simultaneously at Rimini Fiera from January 23rd 2013. Two initiatives in particular, both high-profile, will ensure top grade performance and contents.
The first. After six editions of SIGEP Bread Cup, this year, SIGEP has decided to bring together the five winning nations in a great show of international bread baking. Bakers from Italy, Germany, Israel, United States and Hungary will be the key players of the GOLDEN BREAD CUP, an event realized with the collaboration of Club Arti e Mestieri. Each day will feature a nation, which will illustrate its recipes to colleagues and Italian and international visitors to A.B. TECH EXPO and SIGEP. The recipes will be of the traditional bread of each country and health bread that is generally innovative and connected with new eating trends, as well as cakes. Production techniques will also be covered, ensuring coverage from a professional training point of view. Plus, under the banner of art and sculpture, the ex-winners will be asked to bring artistic bread works to be showcased in personal displays. At the end, a panel of technical judges and one made up of members of the public (at the expo and on Facebook) will nominate the absolute winner.
As well as the competition, there will also be in-depth events, dedicated to the topic of Not only bread, with proposals for mix ‘n’ match between bread and cakes, chocolate, fruit, wine and other beverages. There will also be innovative solutions and the revival of traditional recipes for making bread in kitchens.
The second. In collaboration with Richemont Club Italia, A.B. TECH EXPO and SIGEP will propose Bakery Events, four days entirely dedicated to bread baking.
Saturday 19th: The bread of the future, where the key players will be bakery schools. In the workshops set up in the large bakery area, two students accompanied by their teacher will give a demo based on the specific skills acquired at school. Italian and foreign schools will take part in the event.
Sunday 20th: Bread from home. The key players will be Italian territorial trade associations and foreign professionals. They will all be required to promote the characteristic products of their local areas. A journey through history, culture, gastronomic art and local specialities. The products will be made “live”, as well as being described and explained by each delegation.
Monday 21st and Tuesday 22nd: The fragrance of bread, two days dedicated to the event valid for the assignment of the “Panino d’oro” (Golden Roll) organized by Richemont Club Italia. A contest between bakers who will show their skills in four different tests: Good morning bread (bread and breakfast), Bread and… fantasy (free creativity in bread making), Chef’s’ bread (mix ‘n’ match with bread and various dishes), Bread knows no frontiers (a new slant on international bread).
Training opportunities at the Bakery Events on the use of specific ingredients (mother yeast, organic flours) and in-depth coverage by nutrition specialists on legislative and technical issues, with business proposals for now venue formats.
