Argovian David Schmid was named the world’s best pastry chef of the year on Tuesday. He is the first Swiss to win this title, announced the Swiss Association of Bakers and Confectioners (BCS).
David Schmid “is considered a beacon” in the Swiss bakery and confectionery sector, the BCS said in a statement. “He moves forward with determination and convinces with his spirit of innovation and creativity, and does not hesitate to share his knowledge and pass on his ideas.”
Winner of numerous awards since the end of his training in 2001, David Schmid opened with his wife last year a pastry shop which bears his name in Zofingue (AG). With a reduced range but of quality, he created “a small piece of France” in the heart of the city of Aargau, writes the BCS. The couple received the “baking crown” last June.
