The Délifrance Sandwich World Cup, held in Paris on 7 March, was won by Singapore’s Philip Koh with his Asian Spiced Chicken Sandwich. He beat six finalists from around the world, including Britain’s Adrian Brown who won the British heat in October 2006.

The seven finalists used Delifrance breads as carriers. Philip Koh’s winning sandwich was made with Provencette bread, chicken, tomatoes, coriander, lettuce, red grapes, mayonnaise, shavings of Parmesan and a Thai dressing.

The international panel of judges, including British consultant Nellie Nichols, praised its flavour, eating quality and appearance. The panel was chaired by French baker Jean-Luc Poujauran.

Adrian Brown’s recipe on a Fougasette bread roll included beef, rocket and a savoury marmalade onion dressing.
