The World Cup is here! No, not football - something much better.

It's doubtful there'll be many Le Tissiers making the top billing here*, but there'll be plenty of Boulangers. And it's not so much about booting a ball as baking boules.

The 9th Edition of the Coupe du Monde de la Boulangerie will be full of surprises, says Christian Vabret, Best Baker Artisan of France (Meilleur Ouvrier de France Boulanger) 1986 and Honorary President and Creator of the Coupe du Monde de la Boulangerie.

He continues: "Offering creativity and excllence, this major international bakery event promises to be packed with unforgettable moments, buzzing with emotion and team spirit.

"The Coupe du Monde de la Boulangerie promotes, more than ever, meeting, diversity and innovation!

"The 12 best nations, selected during the last round of the Louis Lesaffre Cup and last final in 2012, will put on a wonderful show, showcasing some of the most outstanding creations and innovative bakery techniques from around the world."

The opening ceremony is today at 15.30, and the contest proper starts tomorrow.  

(*Our apologies to any fine bakers out there who happen to be named Le Tissier)
