Culinary showdown: that’s what the competitions are
Whether a menu or a buffet – in every competition discipline the participants demonstrate what true culinary art can achieve. They work with high concentration and always under the rigorous eyes of the omnipresent jury. Every individual plate must be perfect since the competitors do not know which one is judged. The results are ingenious ideas and creations which participants and visitors will still remember years later.
The great competition between countries: when it’s all about seeing your own country come out on top, even the most experienced chefs start to sweat.
- Restaurant of Nations: a three-course menu for 110 people. The menus will be sold to the visitors and served at the table.
- Chef’s Table: seven different dishes for twelve people – from dips and cold and hot plates through to petit fours. The visitors will enjoy the dishes right in the middle between the cooking boxes of the teams. A complete vegan course is also included.
