Master chocolatier Pierre Marcolini has received more industry recognition after being awarded the prize for ‘Best Pastry Chef in the World’ in a virtual ceremony as part of the ‘World Pastry Stars 2020’.

The prize, won last year by Iginio Massari, pays tribute to the virtuoso who, internationally, has been able to promote the profession of pastry-chocolate maker, celebrated for his creativity, his products, his commercial and corporate value, as well as for continued commitment to training others and imparting his knowledge to rising stars and chefs of the future.

A spokesperson for The Pierre Marcolini House, which was established in Brussels in 1995 and has over 40 outlets worldwide, said the award is the finest accolade achieved to date and marks 25 years of Maison Pierre Marcolini.

The WPS is the most prestigious international confectionery panel dedicated to pastry professionals and was founded by Iginio Massari with magazine Italian Gourmet.

This year’s awards ceremony was hosted virtually by Massari, and connected via live stream with six other notable pastry chefs: Jordi Roca and Albert Adria from Spain, Christophe Michalak and Angelo Musa from France, Antonio Bachour from the United States, and previous winner Best Pastry Chef in Asia 2020 Shoji Natsuko from Japan.
