Do you dream of taking your baking skills to the world stage? Organizers of the 2023 Mondial Du Pain (World of Bread) Team Canada want to hear from you. The deadline to apply has been extended to Feb. 21!

Alan Dumonceaux, chair of the Baking and Pastry Arts School of Skilled Trades, in the Department of Culinary Arts and Professional Food Studies at Northern Alberta Institute of Technology (NAIT) is spearheading the selection of Team Canada, who will compete in Nantes, France, in October 2023 at the prestigious competition that attracts bakers worldwide.

The national selection process is open to professional bakers. The Mondial du Pain is a competition where the National selection and an apprentice compete in three categories together, breads, viennoiserie and a live and dead dough showpiece. Candidates must find their own apprentice, preferably in the same city or within easy travel distance.

Team Canada must be selected by March 31, 2023. Planning and training begins on April 1, the day Team Canada receives the scope of competition.
