The Sanctuary’s Executive Pastry Chef & Team USA Finish Top 10 in Prestigious International Pastry Competition
The Sanctuary at Kiawah Island Golf Resort Executive Pastry Chef Jordan Snider (right) helped lead Team USA to a top-10 finish in the world’s most prestigious international pastry competition. Snider and Team USA placed seventh out of a field of 17 at the Coup du Monde de la Pâtisserie (World Pastry Cup) held in Lyon, France on January 20th and 21st.
Considered within the industry as the Olympics of the pastry world, the competition pitted the top qualifying teams from the Americas, Africa, Asia, Europe, and the Middle East. These finalists were determined through a multiyear process culminating in regional competitions held around the globe, with the qualifying event for The Americas occurring in Santiago, Chile last July.
During the intense completion, each three-person team’s 10-hour timed entry was judged by a panel of international pastry chefs who evaluated each entry for presentation, taste, and conformity.
Snider, a South Carolina native who grew up in Charleston, honed his craft at esteemed restaurants out West before returning to the Lowcountry in 2018 to take the helm of The Sanctuary’s pastry program.
