Over the next couple days, the US Bread Bakers Guild team goes up against competitors from around the world in the Coupe du Monde de la Boulangerie -- the World Bakers' Cup -- in Paris. The three-man team includes a local guy: Jory Downer of Bennison's Bakery in Evanston will be holding down the Viennoiserie (a type of pastry) category. Go USA!
