It is the School with the highest number of world championship titles in culinary disciplines – today, eighteen can be counted; thanks to the presence of great Masters and young professionals that aim to the excellence, it is considered the major landmark and an elective place for researching and developing Made in Italy in culinary arts .

The latest world titles won
In October 2013, after nine months of training at CAST Alimenti, Davide Comaschi stood on the podium of the World Chocolate Masters in Paris, a significant achievement revealing the excellence of Italy in the art of Pastry, which has consequently given the entire segment a great growing opportunity. Cast Alimenti has celebrated with him its being thirteen times training venue for winners of a world title.
From January to October, Davide Comaschi has worked full-time on his pieces, pralines, desserts and cakes, in a fully dedicated laboratory with restricted entry, in order to keep his techniques secret in view of the competition. He has been supported by Coach Iginio Massari, some of the School Professors, the Chief of workshops Sara Accorroni, and scholarship holder Claudia Bagnis.
In January 2015, after one year of training at CAST Alimenti with the support of Master Iginio Massari, the Italian team lead by Emmanuel Forcone won the world title in the Coupe du Monde de la Patisserie in Lyon. It was in 1997 last time Italy climbed the top step of the podium in Pastry.
In January 2016, Italy has won the highest podium at the Gelato World Cup, with the team coached by the Master Diego Crosara, and the Pastry Queen thanks to the victory of Silvia Federica Boldetti. In February Accorroni Sara and Bruno D'Angelis led for the first time Italy on the highest podium of the Mondial Des Arts Sucrés.
