The theme was a meat base Pâté-croute - no truffle allowed, serving 14 people.

Applications are open for entries from the 8th of May until July 31st, 2024.

How to apply ?


The application file must contain a presentation form, the full recipe including detailed step by step preparation and photographs of the recipe (we strongly recommend sending both a picture of the whole pâté as well as a close-up of a slice). Contestants must ensure that everything featured in their file remains entirely anonymous (plates, letter paper, moulds, etc.).

The UK Organization committee will reveal the list of contestants on August 8th.

The UK selection will take place at the SAVOY Hotel, Strand, London WC2R0EZ, from 6pm - 9:30pm.

The winner will be qualified for The “GRAND FINALE” on December 2, 2024, in Lyon (France) and will battle against 14 other winners of other semi-finals (Asia, America, South America, Scandinavia, Polynesia and Europe) to win the title of World Champion! No changes in the recipe, design and decoration between the semi-finals and the Grand Final are allowed.

Enjoy the amazing creations and cheerful moments of the past 2023 finale in Lyon.
