The jurors had to choose between 236 rods present on the starting line, Wednesday, 17 April. Fabrice Leroy won the edition 2019 contest. These are 14 professionals and volunteers from the spell that made up the jury surrounded by Olivia Polski, assistant to the mayor of Paris, and Mahmoud Me seddi, winner of the edition 2018. The creations of the candidates are ranked according to five criteria: taste, cooking, crumb, odor, and appearance. The rods must also comply with the criteria of size and weight, very strict: between 55 and 70 centimeters for the length, and between 250 and 300 grams for the weight.
