Four Malaysian pastry chefs: Chef Kean Yap
(team coach), Chef Mun Pui Teng (team captain and sugar
candidate), Chef Goh Jun Wei (ice candidate) and Chef Lim
Boon Chuan, (chocolate candidate) will demonstrate their skills and creativity
at Coupe du Monde de la Pâtisserie 2023 in Lyon, France on 20 and 21 January 2023.
Also known as the Pastry World Cup, the Debic
supported Team Malaysia will have to create a Sugar Sculpture with Chocolate Entremet,
Chocolate Sculpture with plated desserts, Ice Sculpture with Frozen Desserts
and Frozen Lollipop.
Centred around the theme of ‘climate change’, the
two days of intense competition, spanning over for 10 hours, will see Team Malaysia will go up against teams from 20 other countries.
As a hundred-year-old premium European dairy
brand made for professionals and one of the sponsors of the prestigious Coupe
du Monde de la Pâtisserie competition, Debic has been a passionate global supporter for over 20 years and a proud sponsor of Team Malaysia 2023.
Ramjeet Kaur Virik, Managing Director of Dutch
Lady Milk Industries Berhad shared, “At Debic, we understand professional chefs and have the expertise to provide customised solutions for them with high-quality products, and ease of convenience, to inspire chefs to create high-quality creations.
“The innovative nature of this competition aligns

All competing chefs will have access to Debic products to innovate with, and we look forward to seeing the many high-quality and relevant products resulting from the event.”
The current team hopes to replicate Malaysia’s
success four years ago in Coupe du Monde de la Pâtisserie 2019, where Team
Malaysia emerged as champion with their cutting-edge creations. Debic Ambassadors Chef Otto Tay and Chef Loi Ming Ai (members of the winning team in 2019) also served their winning pastry creations at the sending-off party hosted by Debic.
