CAST Alimenti is the School where World Champions born. The training center for professionals and teams in all culinary arts (cuisine, pastry, gelato and bakery), attending national and international contests.

CAST Alimenti is the Italian School of Culinary Arts with the highest number of world championship titles in culinary disciplines: today, nineteen 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. Both individual professionals and teams from different disciplines participating in important competitions can find in CAST Alimenti the ideal place and the right people to prepare, train, compete and win. Training for competitions represent a great opportunity for CAST Alimenti and its Masters to improve self-discipline, precision, commitment and perseverance, to operate innovative product exploration, as well as to experiment more innovative and efficient teaching methods. Training is about method and the CAST Method, refined in our laboratories in these years, flows from the world of competitions right into our classrooms, to train students and prepare them for the profession they have chosen to undertake with passion.

The latest world titles won

January 21, 2020: CAST Alimenti celebrates its 19th world title: the team composed of Marco Martinelli, Ciro Chiummo, Massimo Carnio, Eugenio Morrone, trained by Beppo Tonon, win the Gelato World Cup during Sigep Exhibition.

The year before Filippo Valsecchi and Vincenzo Donnarumma trained by Davide Malizia won the Juniores Pastry World Cup, the World Championship under 23 in Pastry, on the occasion of the 40th SIGEP, giving the school its 18th title.

Other world victories in 2016: in January Italy has won the highest podium at the Gelato World Cup, with the team coached by Master Diego Crosara and the Pastry Queen title, thanks to the victory of Silvia Federica Boldetti. In February Sara Accorroni and Bruno D'Angelis led for the first time Italy on the highest podium of the Mondial Des Arts Sucrés.

And before that in January 2015, after one year of training in CAST Alimenti with the support of Master Iginio Massari, the Italian team lead by Emmanuel Forcone, trained by Alessandro Dalmasso, won the world title in the Coupe du Monde de la Patisserie in Lyon. Last time Italy climbed the top step of the podium in Pastry it was in 1997.

In October 2013, after nine months of training in 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 the fact of being the training venue for winners of a world title thirteen times

From January to October, Davide Comaschi 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 was supported by Coach Iginio Massari, some of the School Professors, the Chief of workshops Sara Accorroni, and scholarship holder Claudia Bagnis

All these world titles confirm that CAST Alimenti is the School where Champions born
