Gabriel Paillasson, sponsor chef of the 13th edition of Capfruit’s Casse-Croûte des Chefs
Capfruit organized its traditional Casse-Croûte des Chefs on June 17, 2019 in Anneyron in the Drome department of France
For this 13e edition, Capfruit was very proud to welcome Gabriel Paillasson, the Founding President of the Pastry World Cup and Sponsor Chef of this event.
The morning was spent visiting the production site, which gave catering professionals from across the globe the opportunity to discover just how Capfruit’s delicious fruit purées are prepared. Next the visitors were able to taste these purées, not only the classics but also the creations in the ‘Seasonal Flavors’ range and the Fruit’Elite Nuts purées. On a day blessed with abundant sunshine, the new vegan range, Fruit’Soft was particularly appreciated, as these products are just perfect for creating 100% natural sorbets, packed full of fruity flavor.
The day also gave the Chefs and all Capfruit’s many partners the opportunity to meet Eliane and David Bégot, fruit producers at Chanas in the Isère department, who welcomed us to their fruit farm where all our guests gathered for lunch in the heart of the orchards.
Always a moment of conviviality, this 13th edition of the Casse-Croûte des Chefs was no exception, a shared moment of peace and pleasure for all present, all catering professionals inspired by a shared passion for the land and what the land has to offer.
