“The Pastry Battlers” documentary

Team dinnerTeam Pastry Australia at Le Cordon Bleu, Ryde, March 2013

Hello there!

Some of you might know that my partner and I have been following the Australian Pastry Team for two years in order to document their journey to Singapore for the Asian Pastry Cup, and then France for the World Pastry Cup.

We have hours of great footage, and we need the help of a professional editor to cut all this material into an awesome documentary. You can hear me talk about it in the video above (you’re allowed to have a laugh at my “unnaturalness” in front of a camera!)

That is why we have launched a Pozible campaign, which works on the principle of crowdfunding.

We got the help of several partners who were very generous and offered their support to help this project come to fruition and thanks to them we have pretty cool rewards for our supporters, such as:

– a gift voucher for a cooking class with Vincent Gadan at Patisse. You can access this voucher and other cool stuff with our special “Ouh la la” reward
