The Southern Cross : February 2011
The Southern Cross February 2011 Page 19 www.adelaide.catholic.org.au news Adelaide Catholic school teacher Paul Triglau has baking in his blood. His father was a baker and he grew up amongst the early morning hustle and bustle of a flour-dusted commercial bakery for as long as he can remember. "I never wanted to be a baker," says Paul, now the co-ordinator for commercial cookery at St Patrick's Technical College, in Elizabeth West. "I watched my father work so hard and I was sure that wasn't going to be me." But last month Paul captained Team Bakery Australia at the SIGEP International Bread Baking Championship in Rimini, Italy. The Australians competed against 10 countries for the 2011 Bread Cup, which was a highlight of this year's 32nd SIGEP International Exhibition of artisan gelato, pastry, confectionary and bakery production. The trade fair attracts about 100,000 visitors and exhibitors from 150 countries. The fifth annual bread bake-off involved the Aussies vying against team favourites United States and Japan. Each team underwent four tests over five days themed on flavours and tastes of the world. The results of the competition were not available prior to publication. "It's very, very competitive," says Paul. "Some of these teams, if they do well in these competitions, are treated like rock stars when they get back home." The Australian baking team, which was placed second in 2010 and third the previous year, was hoping for a "wild card" entry to the Coupe du Monde de la Boulangerie. This year's first, second and third place winners have a chance of becoming one of 12 countries invited to the Coupe du Monde de la Boulangerie -- an international artisan baking competition held in Paris, France, every three to four years. "It's the World Cup of baking," says Paul. ̨ To check out how Team Baking Australia was placed in the 2011 Bread Cup visit www.sigep.it Funeral Directors Frank J Siebert Life changing.
