Sold out for the two dates with Pierpaolo Magni, coach of gelato world champions, in Tokyo. Pastry chefs and gelato artisans from Asia enjoyed exclusive recipes from "Reverse Fusion. For a (Delicious) Gelato Style" written with Riccardo Magni and Luciana Polliotti
Tokyo, 2 October 2017 – The high-level gelato pastry has conquered Tokyo. The special seminar of the Carpigiani Gelato Pastry University with Pierpaolo Magni, coach of the 2016 gelato world champions, and Alessandro Racca, the youngest gelato Gold Medalist in 1985 and director of the Gelato Pastry University in Tokyo, was sold out for the 27 and 28 September course designed for gelato artisans and pastry chefs coming from Japan, China, South Korea, Taiwan and Hong Kong. This special event also saw the inauguration of the new training room at the Carpigiani Japan headquarters, where the first gelato pastry school in the world, launched in 2015, is located.
The exclusive recipes offered during the lesson - on September 27th in Japanese and September 28th in English - were developed specifically for the event based on original recipes in his latest book “Reverse Fusion. For a (Delicious) Gelato Style” (Editrade, 2017), which is on the cutting edge of the art of Italian gelato. The recipe book, written together with Riccardo Magni and Luciana Polliotti, was inspired by his years of work with the Gelato World Cup and collaborations with some of the world's best pastry and gelato artisans, studying how to successfully combine disciplines and open up the production area to different ideas, techniques, and experiences to offer professionals the chance to fully express their creativity.
The Carpigiani Gelato Pastry University is planning new courses in Japanese for the autumn-winter semester and in English for spring 2018. More information: gelatopastryuniversity.com
