Roussillon Dessert Trophy  Add/Read Comments

Following the success of its 2006 début, the Roussillon Dessert Trophy 2007 launches this August. Devised by the generic body for Wines of Roussillon and run in association with the Academy of Food and Wine, this on-trade competition aims to seek out the most talented pastry chef-sommelier team in the UK, by inviting them to submit a winning combination of a Roussillon “Vin Doux Naturel (VDN)” dessert wine and their own dessert creation.

The 2007 Roussillon Dessert Trophy puts the limelight on British pastry chefs and sommeliers and encourages them to go further in developing their knowledge and expressing their creativity.

Sommeliers entering the Roussillon Dessert Trophy are invited to choose dessert wines from their own list amongst the following VDN appellations: Banyuls, Banyuls Grand Cru, Maury, Muscat de Rivesaltes and Rivesaltes. These rich and complex AOC wines from the Roussillon region - which produces 80% of France’s Vins Doux Naturels - are the best complement to a great variety of desserts.

Jury members are to include Nigel Sutcliffe, restaurant consultant and former director of The Fat Duck, Sarah Jane Evans MW, writer and broadcaster, and Sara Jayne Stanes, Chief Executive, Academy of Culinary Arts. Other jury members are to be confirmed shortly.

Competition entry forms are available from The Academy of Food & Wine info@acfws.Org. The deadline for entries is Friday 31st August 2007.
