A SWEET VICTORY
It was indeed a eureka moment for Gurgaon-based pastry chef, Eureka Araujo, from the Academy of Pastry Arts, Gurgaon, who won the title of Pastry Queen India 2017. Her display included a chocolate cake, glass dessert of Mandarin and Bailey’s milk chocolate ice-cream, vanilla ganache tart, an edible ring made of rose champagne jelly and raspberry rose ganache and a sugar display, themed on Astrology. “The most difficult part was finishing the showpiece. A lot of creativity and teamwork went into it. I choose Scorpio because I have a lot of people in my life, who have that sun sign,” says Eureka. She will now represent India in Ladies World Pastry Championship, SIGEP, Italy to be held between January 20-24, 2018. SIGEP is a specialist trade fair held in Rimini, Italy since 1979.
