A Big Thank You Photos: IKA/Culinary Olympics

The 26th IKA/Culinary Olympics in Stuttgart was a complete success and the German Chefs’ Association (VKD), as the organizer, would like to thank everyone who took part in this superlative culinary event.

Thank you to our colleagues from the VKD Board of Directors who were on hand to answer questions at the information desk, were active at the ticket exchange and manned the VKD Lounge.

Thank you to the more than forty volunteers, mostly members of the VKD family, who supported the competition as marshals, among other things.

Thanks to Messe Stuttgart, Dehoga Baden-Württemberg and all IKA partners, whose commitment ensured perfect competition conditions in the kitchens and in the Restaurant of Nations.

Thanks to the approximately 270 catering trainees from the four state vocational schools for the hotel and catering industry in Baden-Württemberg, who supported the Aramark team with service on all IKA days.

Thanks to the more than 1,200 participants who, as in 2020, brought food trends from all over the world to Stuttgart.

Thank you to the around 60 members of the international IKA jury, who worked transparently and judged with expertise.

Thank you to all the guests and fans who cheered on the teams, admired the culinary art exhibition and got carried away by the IKA atmosphere.

Thank you to the staff at the VKD office, whose day-to-day work weeks before the IKA was already dominated by the Culinary Olympics.

See you in 2028!

This was the IKA 2024
