I was there. In order not to spoil anyone's fun in watching it on tv (whenever that might be), if you pm me I'll fill you in on the results. Karen

I would love to hear all about it also.

If they do show it on TV it probably won't be for quite some time.

I think alot of us are interested in the results.

I did happen to see a few pictures of the USA chocolate and sugar showpiece, Japan's 2 showpieces, and Frances' sugar showpiece - some very nice stuff.

I wouldn't worry about spoilers here. We always tell. If I'm remembering correctly, France took the gold, Japan took silver and US bronze. I don't remember on best chocolate and sugar. France got best table/pastillage. The Mexican team got the best sportsmanship award. Hurrincane Katrina wiped out their practice facility at home and they found another one in Wyoming, I believe it was, and pressed on. It was good to see the Japanese team do so well. They had a rough time. A couple of days before the competition, one of their teammates got stung by a scorpion on his hand. He worked anyway. Their showpiece came crashing down. The French team manager, Stephane Glacier went over and hugged their manager when it happened. Fierce competition but they also had a geniune desire to see everyone do well. I thought Russia did very well for their first time out.

So did anyone do classes? How were they? I could a couple. Will go through my notes and post more later. Day job callin' right now. :rolleyes:

Life is a rush into the unknown. You can duck down and hope nothing hits you, or you can stand tall, show it your teeth and say "Dish it up, Baby, and don't skimp on the jalapeños."

Japan won 1st prize for the chocolate showpiece (it was their sugar piece that crashed) and France won for the best sugar showpiece. Both pieces were remarkable. France also took first (and a monetary prize) for best degustation, almost a clean sweep.
