These fine bakers will represent the USA at the Coupe du Monde de la Boulangerie which is held in conjunction with Europain (European baking trade show) in Paris in Feb 2016.

For those of you contemplating a trip to France in the next couple of years, February does not show Paris at its peak, but the excitement of the Coupe compensates.

And for those of you passionate about bread, the BBGA ( is an organization you may want to join.

Congratulations to Team USA. So it begins.
