Congratulations to the winners and special congratulations also to the UK & Ireland chocolate master, Alistair Birt, who made his homeland proud! Competing with the pastry chefs with many more years of experience was a great challenge and yet Alistair created wonderful things which even classified him between four best in the Or Noir Challenge. I sincerely hope that Alistair will return to the WCM stage again.
